Daesh Claims Responsibility for the US-Base Attack in Afghanistan

JALALABAD – The Daesh terror group claimed responsibility for a missile attack at a US base in Afghanistan, as per a statement released on its social media networks on Wednesday.
The attack is reported to have occurred on Sunday in the Achin district of Nangarhar Province.
“The Caliphate’s soldiers managed the day before yesterday to target a base belonging to the Crusader American army in Achin area in Nangarhar with a Katyusha rocket, causing serious casualties,” Daesh claimed in an Arabic statement posted on the Telegram networking site.
The statement was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) which tracks terror organizations.
“Providing evidence for its claim, ISIS published two photos: The first shows a militant with a blurred face holding the group’s black flag and standing next to a Katyusha rocket launcher; the second shows a rocket in flight,” according to MEMRI.
“In a separate post, the group’s A’maq News Agency claimed that the July 14 Katyusha rocket attack targeted a military base of the ‘international alliance’ in the Mamand area in Nangarhar’s Achin district,” MEMRI reports.
