The US launched its first attack on the Taliban after the signing of the peace agreement

Representatives of the US military explained the attack as necessary to counter the Taliban’s attack on Afghan government forces.

On Wednesday, the US launched the first airstrike against Taliban forces in Afghanistan after signing an ambitious peace agreement with the militant group a few days ago in Qatar.

Us military spokesman Colonel Sonny Leggett tweeted that the “defensive” strike was the first US attack against militants in 11 days.

He said the attack was carried out to counter a Taliban strike on Afghan government forces in the Nahri Saraj area of Helmand province.
