The U.S. military launched several airstrikes against the Taliban this week in support of Afghan government forces, but the insurgents reportedly warned that there will be “consequences.”
“In the last several days we have acted, through airstrikes, to support the [Afghan national defense and security forces],” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said on Thursday, according to The Associated Press.
Another defense official said that more than four airstrikes were conducted in support of Afghan security forces, the outlet reported.
At least two of the airstrikes destroyed military equipment the Taliban had stolen from Afghan forces. more
