PARWAN, May 19 – More than 45 U.S.-NATO soldiers killed and scores injured in the attack on Bagram airbase, Zabihullah Mujahide, a reporter of al-Emarah told the media outlets, on Wednesday morning, (May).

According to the details, 20 Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate attacked Bagram airbase, the largest and heavily-secured base of U.S.-NATO in the country, with heavy and small arms in the early morning hours of Wednesday continuing till late morning hours of the day.

Our reporter said Mujahideen managed to penetrate into the airbase, armed with explosive vests, grenades and heavy and small arms, four of whom carried on martyr bomb attacks, destroying the enemy military base and posts and the rest of the Mujahideen attacked the intended targets, according their tactical planning.

The operation was carried out successfully, in a pre-planned and tactical way, killing and wounding dozens of U.S.-NATO soldiers including some the top-level generals and officials as well as causing the enemy severest damages in the explosions and rocket strikes which also caused the fuel storage of the enemy to be set on fire and damaging a number of their military vehicles, Zabihullah Mujahid added.

Zabihullah indicated that 7 of the Mujahideen of the group of 20 carried out martyr bomb attacks and embraced martyrdom causing the enemy irreparable losses and damages, while the rest of 13 Mujahideen, after bravely fighting the enemy for about 5 hours, returned safely.

Wednesday’s operation has been one of the most intense, daring and successful ones since the operation al-Fath began throughout the country.
