  • A USAF B-1B, a U.S. Navy F/A-18F (VFA 103) and a coalition aircraft responded to several ground engagements near Lashkar Gah (Google Maps). The aircraft conducted strikes using strafes and GBU-12s and -38s targeting anti-Afghan forces fighting positions which had been shooting at Afghan and coalition units with RPGs and assault weapons. One of the targets was an IED factory where anti-Afghan forces had been building roadside bombs and stockpiling munitions.
