28 Dead Taliban in One Shot!

We droned some Talibans.

A US drone strike has killed at least 28 suspected Taliban militants in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, officials said Wednesday.

Provincial police spokesman Colonel Hazrat Hussein Mashriqiwal told Anadolu Agency the overnight strikes targeted Taliban fighters in the province's Haska Mina district and “hopefully a Taliban commander is also among those killed in Tuesday's attack."

The strike followed a series of other operations by the US in the province over the past week that have killed more than 100 fighters claiming loyalty to the Syria-based Daesh militant group, including their top two commanders and a former leader of the Pakistani Taliban.

Also on Tuesday, Afghanistan's intelligence agency the National Directorate for Security (NDS) killed 12 fighters in neighboring Laghman province and prominent Taliban commander Amin Jan Kuchi.

Now is the time at Jawa when we dance.
