Afghan president slams Taliban; rockets target Kabul palace

  Afghan president slams Taliban; rockets target Kabul palace KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — At least three rockets hit near the presidential palace on Tuesday shortly before Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was to give an address to mark the major Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. There were no injuries and the rockets landed outside the heavily fortified palace grounds, said Mirwais Stanikzai, spokesman for the interior minister. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the rocket attack, but police quickly fanned out across area. One car parked on a nearby street was completely destroyed; the police said it was used as launching pad for the rockets.

Videos show the commandos ' bodies strewn across an outdoor market. After a fierce battle to hold the town, they the commandos had run out of ammunition and were surrounded by the Taliban fighters , witnesses said.

Taliban being a religeous loyalty is an American media drilled concept. When they talk about CCP talking to the ' Taliban ', they mean they made business deals with the local leaders, not a centralized Afghan organization called ' Taliban ' the West believes exist. The video implies that it was foreign fighters who killed these commandos . And the lack of air or ground support for these guys is pretty infuriating. A question that I have is was there any coordination and planning done between the commandos and their supporting elements prior to conducting such an operation?

The Taliban shot 22 Afghan commandos on Tuesday in the northern province of Faryab, the Afghan Ministry of Defense confirmed to Fox News.

The Special Force members' ammunition ran out as they fought with terrorist militants, leading them to surrender.

The Taliban told them to take off their bulletproof vests amid the surrender and then shot the 22 troops, including the son of a top Afghan general, the Ministry of Defense said. There is purportedly unverified video of the incident circulating online.
