MNA – In a tweet, Taliban spokesman Zabihollah Mujahid said that the Afghan armed group launched a missile at Bagram Air Base, the largest US base in Afghanistan, on Thursday morning.
According to Russian Sputnik news agency, the development follows reports that the Taliban brought down a US B-52 heavy bomber as the warplane was ostensibly departing from the Shawrab Airbase in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday morning.
The Taliban launched a missile at Bagram Air Base, the largest US base in Afghanistan, on Thursday morning, according to a message tweeted by the group’s spokesman.
He noted that the attack has inflicted damage on the airfield and caused human losses.
The purported incident comes only a day after Syrian news outlet Muraselon reported that the Taliban militants said they had shot down a US B-52 heavy bomber.
