KABUL, Afghanistan – U.S. Forces – Afghanistan engaged terror and security targets with 392 strikes consisting of 498 engagements in Afghanistan, October 1-31, 2018, to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a safe haven to the Islamic State Khorasan Province, al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
In addition, such strikes enable Afghan National Defense and Security Forces operations as Afghanistan and the international community continue to apply judicious military pressure to enable the Taliban’s eventual reconciliation, reintegration and realignment.
U.S. forces do not claim strikes are decisive; however, we may occasionally talk about this information to provide context.
