, April 10 According to U.S. media reports on the 8th, in late March, the Chapman Frontal Combat Base in eastern Afghanistan was attacked by the Taliban twice, and several rockets exploded near the base, injuring seven civilians nearby. According to the report, the base is a secret base, and the alert level is also the highest.
According to CNN on the 8th, at the time of the attack on the Chapman frontline combat base, U.S. military personnel affiliated with the CIA were inside the base. In the first wave of attacks launched by the Taliban, several rockets exploded near the base, injuring seven civilians nearby. The second wave of rockets hit the water tower in the base, causing no casualties to U.S. personnel. In addition, NATO airbase in southern Afghanistan was attacked by the Taliban this week, and several rockets exploded inside the base.
The government led by former U.S. President Donald Trump signed an agreement with the Taliban in Doha, the capital of Qatar, in February 2020. According to the agreement, the U.S. military and NATO coalition forces in Afghanistan will withdraw by May 2021. U.S. President Biden said in a recent interview that it will not take too long to withdraw completely, and that it is “possible, but difficult” to withdraw completely before May 1. Similar attacks could be more and more before the withdrawal deadline, the report said.
