It has been reported that US forces have destroyed a Taliban training camp in Afghanistan using the ‘Mother Of All Bombs’ in a terrific show of power that underlines Donald Trump’s previous commitments to eradicating terror facilities across the world.
According to a report in The Express:
FACILITIES aimed at training deadly suicide terrorists for the Taliban and East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) have been destroyed by the US after a planned attack last weekend.
US forces hit the terrorism training camps by pummelling the area with GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blasts (MOAB) which is also known as the “mother of all bombs”.
The successful military action destroyed vital facilities sued by the terror organisations to commit atrocities in the Middle East and limit their future resources.
General James B. Hecker, Commander of NATO Air Command Afghanistan, said: “The destruction of these training facilities prevents terrorists from planning any acts near the border with China and Tajikistan.
“The strikes also destroyed stolen Afghan National Army vehicles in the process of being converted to vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.”
The ETIM operate in China and on the border of Afghanistan and working closely with the Taliban to spread fear and terror.
General Hecker added: “ETIM enjoys support from the Taliban in the mountains of Badakhshan, so hitting these Taliban training facilities and squeezing the Taliban’s support networks degrades ETIM capabilities.”
It is well worth remembering at the moment that even though ISIS is still very much the main cause for concern in the Middle East, other more traditional terror threats exist elsewhere, as has been proved by this attack.
Thankfully there are still people out there that are taking this threat seriously!
