DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:55 P.M.) – On Thursday, at least two US servicemen were killed-in-action (KIA) and a third injured amid a raid against ISIS insurgents in the contested Nangarhar governorate.

The US soldiers were embedded with a platoon Afghani Army troops when they were overwhelmed by an ISIS ambush in the aforementioned area.

In a newly released statement, Washington confirmed the regrettable event and said it would release the names of fallen soldiers within 24 hours:

Amaq Agency also published a statement regarding the attack, stating ISIS militants had killed the two US soldiers in mention.

The ISIS outlet said ISIS had foiled an attempt by US special forces and Afghan troops to parachute over Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan.

Preluded by airstrikes, artillery shelling and rocket attacks, the Afghan operation began but ended just one hour later as US forces and Afghan troops were forced to retreat.

According to ISIS’ version of events, “several US soldiers” were killed in the failed attack while US jets followed up by conducting intense airstrikes on the region, killing and wounding 100 people, most of them women and children.

The full report can be read in Arabic below:

Whoops. 16 years in Afghanistan and the US still have not won the war.

I remember well the US Marines fleeing of the US Embassy roof in helicopter’s .

They lost that war as well.

You seem to forgot that when it happened, US militaries were long gone from South-Vn as Tricky-d**k had already sold S-Vn to China!
BTW, this famous picture doesn’t shows USMC fleeing the embassy but one of their choppers taking (close to regime) S-Vn civilians away from Saigon.

I remember well the images of desperate civilians clamouring to enter the US Embassy compound as the US marines were the last to leave.

I also remember well the iconic photograph of an NVA T55 ramming down the Saigon palace gates a few days later.

The close close allies of the US are funding and supporting ISIS with the help of the CIA. I am against the US aggression throughout the world. Wherever the US military plays with its toys there is chaotic destruction that only benefits the US companies that make their weapons and those of the US allies.

I support the struggle against this demonic cabal of thieves.

Little matter the identity of anyone who makes Americans experience a little of their own soup.
After all ISIS is not the same creation of the Americans being discarded after being used as they will do with the Kurds wits?

Yes, I’m on ISIS’ side when they kill American occupying forces.
And I’m on the Americans’ side when they kill ISIS occupying forces.
I’m in favour of anyone who helps to send all those occupants home, one way or the other.

So what was the purpose of the use of the mother of all bombs there?
Since I see no more benefit other that to encourage ISIS to start killing Americans what they didn’t do so much before the MOAB’s fall.
Crazy americans.
