On October 25th, Taliban forces attacked ANDSF troops, prompting the targeted strike by the USFOR-A. Controversy quickly erupted, with the Taliban accusing the United States of violating the agreement. USFOR-A spokesman, Colonel Sonny Legget, posted a tweet stating the USFOR-A conducted the strike in defense of ANDSF troops. Col. Legget added the strike complied with the US-TB agreement and denied allegations the strike resulted in innocent Afghans’ death.
It’s unclear what may happen after the dust settles. Whatever happens, let’s hope it doesn’t disrupt recent progress made by the Trump administration in the Middle East. Keeping peace in Afghanistan is a crucial part of obtaining harmony in the Middle East.
