ISIS captured loads of US weapons and equipment after repelling an joint US/Afghan attack on Nanjarhar. An American flag, an American ID card, a rocket, and many hand grenades were seized by the terror group.

According to local media sources, Islamic State fighters were able to counter Afghan government attacks in Kut, Shadal, Dah Bala, Adel Khail, and Pandar that were backed by tanks and heavy air cover.

The source presumed that the American equipment most likely belonged to American soldiers that may have been injured carrying out military operation in the past few weeks.

ISIS has steadily grown over the past few years in the war-torn country fighting both the Afghan government forces and Taliban, which it accuses of not being Islamic enough due to its interactions with several foreign states.

You’re right. The politicians sit behind their desk while they send someone’s son, daughter, father, cousin ect to do their dirty work for them. I just hate it when the young guys are gulliable to sign up to go fight wars based on lies, political agendas, and profits. They aren’t fighting for freedom anymore. They haven’t in a long time. They just follow orders without knowing what they are really fighting for nowadays

Who on earth carries a US flag nowadays while fighting insurgents? This is not 1776.

It’s BS. This site is leaning towards propagating the Jihadists lately. Maybe that was its initial purpose…

1 rocket, some bullets and cartrigdes , Daesh looses more than this during a suicide attack and some people are saying its a supplies for them. Spoils of war are a part of warfare, just look at how much supplies SAA lost to the jihasdists and rebels in de Artillery base.

How is he supporting when he is just the messenger reporting? The photos does tel that someone was injured. You can see the TCCC card right below the video. Where else could you get CATS, 40MM GL, plate carrier, MK48 spare barrel, Mpro7, plate carriers ect like that in Afghanistan? I did look up the CAC’s name but it showed another individual who was KIA back in 2011. The face didn’t match, but the name was identical

Most SAA soldiers are Sunni. You’re wasting your time here – but you might be more successful if you first learned the language.
