Fresh footage coming out of Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan reportedly shows part of the battles in which five American Special Operations troops were wounded last week while fighting against the Afgh/Pak branch of the Islamic State known as Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP). It was reported that this gun battle was very close at times and even turned to hand-to-hand combat at one point.
All five troops were wounded by small-arms fire or shrapnel in separate instances on the 24th and 25th of July. None of the American troops suffered life-threatening injuries. However, three of the elite troops had to be flown out of country for treatment.
