American aircraft attacked Afghan Taliban

The US Air Force attacked the Afghan Taliban. As reported by the Afghan TV channel 1 TV, the planes attacked the positions of the radical Taliban movement banned in Russia in the Wardak province, located in the center of the country.


Colonel Sonny Leggett, spokesman for the US forces in Afghanistan, said US Air Force warplanes delivered a "pinpoint strike" on militant positions in Nerh County, Wardak Province. The strike resulted in the destruction of five Taliban. The attack was carried out with the aim of "protecting the Afghan security forces."

The colonel stressed that the attack by the US Air Force did not contradict the agreement between the US and the Taliban and was carried out against the militants. At the same time, Leggett denied charges of killing civilians.

We reject accusations of violation of the Doha accords and of the killing of civilians

- he added.

In turn, the Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan reported that the military government forces conducted a counterattack in the Wardak province, during which 26 supporters of the radical Taliban movement were killed. At the same time, the representative of the Afghan military did not mention anything about the attack by the American Air Force. Also, in Kabul, nothing was said about their own losses during the attack.

Meanwhile, Afghan media are reporting on the activation of the Taliban against the background of peace talks that began last month between the radical movement and the official Kabul. The opinion is expressed that after the departure of the coalition led by the United States from Afghanistan, the country's authorities will not hold out for a long time, despite the money invested in the Afghan army.

    The opinion is expressed that, most likely, after the departure of the coalition led by the United States from Afghanistan, the country's authorities will not hold out for a long time, despite the money invested in the Afghan army.

    Within 1-2 years the Taliban will crush almost all of Afghanistan, as it was before.

      US Air Force attack does not contradict an agreement between the US and the Taliban

      The Americans in particular and the Anglo-Saxons in general are not negotiable.
      They will stab any ally in the back as soon as their death is only marginally beneficial to them.

      Yeah, our practically the only allies in the world. Also Hamas and Hezbollah, perhaps.
      In May 2018, a representative of the Taliban delegation in Moscow said that its members had met with Lavrov and were planning to meet with other officials. This is the third visit of a Taliban delegation to Moscow, the previous rounds of negotiations were held in February and November.
      The Taliban delegation of 14 people was led by Mullah Baradar Akhund. Among them, however, there were no official representatives of the Afghan authorities.
      The meeting was attended by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

          In the US, the Taliban go to negotiations, don't they? Like enemies?
          And they go to Moscow, because the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
          Quote: Ka-52

          About Hamas and Hezbollah the same way.

          just as funny, yeah
          At the end of December, images of a Russian special forces soldier in uniform with the Hezbollah emblem appeared on social networks.
          This footage was filmed in the Syrian city of Aleppo. And the Hezbollah commander in Aleppo said that on the battlefield in Syria, they work in close cooperation with the Russians.
          “We have an amazing relationship with Russia,” he noted. - In some areas of Aleppo there are Russian servicemen. They are sent to strategic areas to control the front line, to see how Hezbollah forces are fighting the opposition, to conduct reconnaissance. Sometimes they record the progress of these operations. "
          Cooperation between Russia and Hezbollah was manifested on November 24, 2016.
          The Lebanese newspaper Al-Ahbar, known for its closeness to Hezbollah, wrote that the first direct and formal negotiations took place between the group and high-ranking Russian military personnel on the final stage of the war in Aleppo.
          The newspaper noted that a request for this meeting came from Russia. During these negotiations, it was decided that Russia, until the end of the operation in Aleppo, would help Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed Shiite militants fighting on the ground.
          The Hezbollah commander, who noted that the Russians are reliable partners, continued: “The Russian air support brought clarity to the situation on the battlefield. Because the regime's airstrikes were very weak and often missed the mark. ”

          And the FSB explained why Hamas and Hezbollah are not terrorist organizations.
          The FSB of Russia published a list of 17 terrorist organizations and answering the question why there are no such organizations as Hamas and Hezbollah on this list, Major General Yuri Sapunov, head of the Department for Combating International Terrorism of the FSB of Russia, slyly dodged by saying that "list 17" - This is a national list of terrorist organizations. "This means that it includes only those organizations that pose a threat to the security of only our state," the general explained.

            Rather, a geographically close neutral intermediary.
            Or do you consider all intermediaries to be accomplices? Poor Swiss - whose only ally they will then not become ... smile
            By the way, at the talks between the two Afghan delegations in Moscow, the US was supposed to be the second mediator, but at the last moment the State Department changed its mind.

              The Federal Security Service has circulated a list of organizations recognized as terrorist in Russia. Among them are the Taliban and ISIS.

              Vladimir Putin: Russia does not negotiate with terrorists, it destroys them.
              “According to universally recognized international rules, refusal of any dialogue with terrorists is an unconditional principle, because any contacts with terrorists encourage them to commit new, even more bloody crimes. Russia has not done this and will not do so in the future. Russia does not negotiate with terrorists, it destroys them, "the Russian president said.

            "go to negotiations" or "allies"? You will decide. Delegations go to negotiations for various reasons, including opponents to negotiate a truce. And the allies have signed agreements on joint military actions in cases of mutual threats. It looks like you threw it on the fan again, either out of stupidity, or for the sake of provocation.

        And here is the full text of the news:
        Another round of talks on a peaceful settlement in Afghanistan with the participation of representatives of the radical Taliban movement, recognized in Russia as a terrorist organization and banned, took place in Moscow on Tuesday.
        The Taliban delegation of 14 people was led by Mullah Baradar Akhund. Prominent Afghan elders and politicians, including former President Hamid Karzai, have become her negotiating partners. Among them, however, there were no official representatives of the Afghan authorities, since the Taliban do not agree to direct negotiations with them.
        The meeting was attended by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who called for the complete withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan.
        The Taliban insist on the same. Their spokesman said on Tuesday that the timing of a possible withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan is being discussed at the talks with the US in Qatar. The Taliban say they hope to reach an agreement during the next round of negotiations.
        A spokesman for the Taliban delegation in Moscow said its members had previously met privately with Lavrov and planned to meet with other officials.
        This is the third visit of a Taliban delegation to Moscow, the previous rounds of negotiations were held in February and November ..

        Agree, figurative quoting works wonders. Just one remote proposal - and now the Taliban have arrived for negotiations with the Russian Foreign Ministry, and not for a meeting on neutral territory with their opponents in Afghanistan.

          I disagree - this does not change the essence.
          I will only repeat that the Taliban is recognized by Russia as a terrorist organization, and that, according to Putin, “Russia does not negotiate with terrorists, it destroys them” ... and even “at distant approaches”.
          But, apparently, the Russian Foreign Ministry and other "officials" in Russia are not at all Russia. And they can.

            So Russia does not conduct any negotiations with the Taliban. Negotiations are going on between the Taliban and their opponents, Russia only provides a platform for this.

              That is, without the participation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and other officials of the Russian Federation in meetings with the Taliban, there is no way to provide a "platform" or hall, or a whole mansion?

    As I understand it, the Americans do not have enough last kick in the ass to run to the United States without looking back? Why bomb the Taliban if an agreement has been reached with them or it seems to the Americans that they have agreed. In Afghanistan, such feints with ears will not work!

    Scream !!! - The first state of the planet has been ironing some bandits in the Afghan mountains for 20 years with a near-zero result !!! At the same time, using space technologies, the same UAVs and the rest of the know-how - and the cart (Taliban) is still there !!! Smells like Vietnam 2.0 or at least Somalia 2.0 !!!

    Why bomb the Taliban, if they agreed with them and
    Who agreed with whom ??? Atheists with religious fanatics ??? The state agreed with the direction of religion ??? Drug makers with their users ??? Who with whom and on what in Afghanistan can agree ??? In my opinion, for 150 years already, no one there negotiates anything with anyone !!!
