KUNDUZ .. 2001 #Afghanistan #USA #NayabChohan #TemplateNews

BATTLE OF QALA I JHANG lasted six days and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Taliban fighters who were attempting a prison break out. They were struck with 52 US air strikes and those who survived emerged from the fortress after it was flooded. No one – not the Americans or the warlord who was put in charge of guarding the fortress, Raschid Dostum – have ever been charged for this crime against prisoners of war. The episode is remembered for two Americans – one CIA operative killed during the break out and other who emerged from the fortress having fought for the Taliban, John Walker Lindh, prisoner 001, pictured below.
