The move comes while the Trump government is reviewing stratagem in Afghanistan as Taliban forces persist to gain ground and Islamic State is establishing its own garrison
The Taliban manage or challenge more than half of Afghanistan’s colonized areas, according to U.S. estimates, making it tough for America to bring out itself from its longest-ever war of the decade.
Former President Barack Obama had planned to fetch his 85% troops out from Afghanistan before leaving the white house but somehow attracted backward from his self-made a plan because of Taliban attains and the impotence of Afghan forces to counter on their own land.
About 15,000 U.S. and NATO troops remain in Afghanistan for some years and the top U.S. commander is pushing for several thousand more, which is against President Obama policy.
Independently, the Pentagon said that a coalition airstrike projected to target Islamic State forces based in Syria had unconsciously killed 18 Syrian fighters allied with the U.S which is somehow not tolerable for allies.
Recent strike in Tabqah was requested by allies on the ground there who identified the target as an Islamic State fighting position, the U.S.-led coalition said in a statement. In fact, it was actually the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
“The Coalition’s deepest condolences go out to the members of the SDF and their families,” the coalition said in the statement. “The Coalition is in close contact with our SDF partners who have expressed a strong desire to remain focused on the fight against ISIS despite this tragic incident.”
This was the third time in the past month that a U.S. airstrike in the fight against Islamic State was believed to have killed civilians or allies
