Taliban says it fired deadly missile at largest US air base in Afghanistan

TEHRAN, Apr. 11 (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.
