Afghanistan: Reported US covert actions 2019

The timeline below contains information on all US air attacks on Afghanistan recorded by the Bureau in 2019. It is updated with the latest US air attacks. We also log Afghan Air Force attacks when they are reported. The Bureau collects information on the US and Afghan strikes and the people they kill from local and international media reports – including the Bureau’s own field investigations – as well as academics and NGOs that cite US, Afghan and Pakistani civil, military and intelligence officials, and witnesses and local people in the affected areas.

Please note that our data changes according to our current understanding of particular strikes. The information below represents our present best estimate.

Background

US aircraft have been bombing Afghanistan since late 2001 and the airstrikes have continued into the Trump administration. Up until December 2014 the US was operating in concert with its allies in the Nato-led International Security Assistance Force. Now it is just the US, and the Afghans, flying strike missions in the country.

The Bureau began tracking the strikes from January 1 2015 onwards, when the US and Nato’s combat mission in Afghanistan came to an end. The Afghan military and police took the lead in fighting the Taliban with the US and its international partners moving into a non-combat “train, advise, assist” role, supporting local forces.

US air forces are still flying combat missions however. There are three targeting authorities that govern the kind of strikes the US can conduct in Afghanistan.

Force protection strikes are intended to protect friendly ground forces who are under attack, or are about to be attacked. From January 1 2015 the US was supposed to stop deliberately going after the Taliban, leaving that to the Afghans. But in June 2016, with the Taliban pushing the Afghan forces to breaking point, the US went on the offensive against the Taliban, under “strategic effect” strikes.

The third authority governs the US’s counter-terrorism strikes, part of its offensive operations against al Qaeda and, since January 2016, Afghanistan’s Islamic State offshoot.

  • 0-6 civilians reported killed

Six civilians were killed in a "foreign forces" airstrike in Kapisa province, Afghanistan Times reported.

A "well placed source" told Afghanistan Times that a child and two women were among the six civilians killed in the strike in central Kapisa.

The strike is said to have taken place in the Dara e Afghani village in Nijrab district at 8pm local time on Tuesday 24, with the air and ground operation lasting around eight hours.

ToloNews had reported said the operation was conducted in a residential area where Taliban fighters were using civilian homes as strongholds. They claimed a child, two women and three men were killed.

Residents of the village reportedly said that the Taliban forcibly entered their homes and set up fighting positions.

Afghanistan Times are likely referring to the US as the foreign force responsible for the strike, as they are the only military in the Nato coalition carrying out airstrikes in Afghanistan.

A series of US airstrikes were called in following a failed Taliban attempt to breach Bagram airbase in Parwan province, Resolute Support confirmed.

US and Afghan forces were reportedly pulled into a 9-10 hour fight after a suicide bombing targeted a medical facility near the airbase, the Military Times reported.

They strikes targeted the medical facility when Taliban fighters barricaded themselves inside, a Resolute Support spokesperson said.

The site was being built to offer medical services to local Afghans.

The attack began with suicide attackers detonating two vehicle-borne bombs at the building site, located near the northern corner of Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. base in Afghanistan, said Wahida Shahkar, spokeswoman for the governor of Parwan province.

The suicide bombing and attack killed at least two Afghan civilians and wounded nearly 70 others, according to the Afghanistan Ministry of Interior.

“Coalition forces, in coordination with Afghan Security Forces, informed local residents and blocked off the area before conducting these airstrikes to ensure their safety,” a Resolute Support spokesman told Military Times in an emailed statement.

Georgia said five of its service members were wounded in Wednesday’s attack on Bagram.

The hospital has a gate leading to the base, said Mohammad Mahfooz Alizada, Parwan police chief.

A number of nearby civilian houses were destroyed in the bombing, according to a local member of parliament for Parwan Province where Bagram base is located, ABC reported.

Military forces stationed at the American base heard, "Ground attack in sector bravo five. Shelter in place," over an emergency alert system at Bagram Airfield in the early stages of the assault amid the barrage of gunfire and whining sirens, according to a video of the attack posted to social media. - Newsweek

Resolute Support said the attack was "quickly contained and repelled … but the future medical facility was badly damaged."

It is not clear how many casualties were sustained in the ensuing airstrikes.

There were no casualties to US and coalition forces, according to US military officials.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the medical facility.

  • 0-6 civilians reported killed

A US drone strike killed five civilians in Khost province, the New York Times reported.

A woman killed had just given birth in southeast Afghanistan - her three relatives and driver were also killed, according to Afghan officials and family members.

The strike was either late Friday or early Saturday, relatives told NYT.

One strike hit Khost province on November 29, according to data from US Forces - Afghanistan.

The 25-year-old, Malana, had just given birth to her second child at home - when her health started to deteriorate, relatives rushed her to the hospital. It was on their way back that their vehicle was hit by the strike.

A relative told NYT that the newborn baby was not in the car and was safe at home.

The United States military command in Afghanistan confirmed a strike in Khost, saying that three Taliban fighters had been killed. But the military said the strike occurred on Thursday, Nov. 28, NYT reported.

“We are aware of the allegations of civilian casualties and working with local authorities to determine the veracity of these claims,” Col. Sonny Leggett, a military spokesman, said.

Tolo News reported that six members of a family were killed in a drone strike in Khost on this day - it is unclear whether they were referring to the same incident.

Members of the Khost provincial council reportedly said that the strike targeted a civilian home in Alisher district.

A spokesman for US forces in Afghanistan confirmed an airstrike in Khost in Terazai district that “targeted three Taliban fighters.” The spokesman added “we are aware of the allegations of civilian casualties” and said they are “working with local authorities to determine the veracity of these claims. “
Meanwhile, former President Hamid Karzai in a tweet condemned the strike.
“The latest US drone attack in Khost, which killed six members of a family, was atrocious and highly condemnable. This is clear and blatant violence against the Afghan people. I once again call on all sides to focus entirely on the peace process,” Karzai tweeted.

The Kabul offices of the US forces recognised the strike, Pajhwok news reported - though again not confirming whether US or Afghan forces conducted it, saying that three Taliban fighters were killed.

Haidar Jan Naeemzai, a Kuchi representative in Wolesi Jirga named the five civilian victims for Pajhwok as: Malalai, daughter of Noorajan, Malano, daughter of Gulchi, Noor Bibi, daughter of Khatol, Noor Jan, son of Mangoee, and driver Mullah Nabi, son of Eid Gul.

Jan Mir Zazai, a member of the provincial council, verified four members of a family were killed in the tragic incident. He added the dead included three women and a man, as well as the driver, with possible links to the Taliban.

They were on their way back from the al Madina private clinic, according to Pajhwok's account.

Aminullah, in charge of the clinic, told Pajhwok that a pregnant woman was brought in by her father-in-law at 9:45pm. Her sister, a nine year old and their driver was also there. They were discharged around 11:30pm local time.

Gul Marjan, Kochi council head, confirmed that three women, two men and the baby were killed when heading home from a local hospital.

“We are aware of the allegations of civilian casualties and working with local authorities to determine the veracity of these claims,” the US military in Afghanistan said in a statement.

A local lawmaker from Khost, Janmir Zazai, told The Washington Post the airstrike hit a vehicle, but he was unaware of the number of people killed.

We will contact Resolute Support for their assessment of civilian harm in this incident.
