At least 11 Taliban terrorists in war-torn Afghanistan's Nijrab district were killed on Tuesday following airstrikes by the US B-52 bombers. Kapisa province's police spokesman Shayiq Shorish said the airstrike hit a Taliban target in the Tapa-e-Ahmad Bek area in Nijrab.
On Saturday, US B-52 bombers had targeted positions of the Taliban in Afghanistan's Shebergan city, Jawzjan province.
Regarding the airstrikes, Pentagon Press Secretary John F Kirby said at a press briefing, "Washington would continue to support Afghanistan with the authority where and when feasible, understanding that it's not always going to be feasible. But where and when feasible, we'll continue to support them with airstrikes, for instance."
