U.S. and Afghan Special Forces Raid In Taliban Held Area

first published on December 22, 2015 by

U.S. and Afghan Special Forces conduct a night insertion into a Taliban held area to conduct a day’s worth of raids and clearing operations. During the course of the operation they take occasional enemy harassment fire, which is kept largely at bay by close air support assets. As night falls, the element moves to an extraction point for pickup and returns to base.
