The men responsible for the killing of 30 Americans in Afghanistan have been confirmed dead after a US military airstrike.
30 Americans, including 22 Navy Seals, 20 of which were members of the infamous Seal Team Six responsible for bringing down Osama Bin Laden, along with eight Afghans were killed on August 6 in Afghanistan after their Chinook helicopter was shot down by Taliban insurgents. The incident occurred as the team began a rescue operation. August marks the worst month for US casualties in Afghanistan to date.
US General John Allen told the Associated Press yesterday, in Afghanistan, that a Monday airstrike killed Taliban leader Mullah Mohibullah and other insurgent whom is expected to have fired the shot.
"Mullah Mohibullah was a key facilitator in an insurgent attack cell led by Din Mohammad, a Taliban leader killed in a previous Special Operations mission," NATO issued in a statement following the incident. "As a leader in Mohammad's network in Tangi valley, Mohibullah had as many as 12 Taliban fighters under his command, including potential suicide bombers."
