Army infantry reconnaissance squad in Nurah Lam, Laghman Province, assaulting a Taliban compound.The video shows an RPG that the Taliban threw down as they retreated from their positions, as they closed within 25 meters.
For all the armchair generals here, this team reacted a lot better than most I’ve seen. At least this wasn’t a standard “take contact, suppress, and retreat” situation. They took contact, identified the enemy location, pushed forward, and forced the Taliban out of their positions so quickly that they had to leave supplies and weapons behind.
