B-52 Strikes Drug Lab in Afghanistan


A U.S. B-52 conducts a strike on a Taliban narcotics production facility in Helmand province on February 2, 2018, as part of an ongoing campaign by the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) and United States Forces-Afghanistan (USFOR-A) to cut off the Taliban's economic lifelines and degrade their ability to continue operations. Since November, the ANDSF and USFOR-A have destroyed more than 30 narcotics facilities, removing more than $22 million in direct revenues from the Taliban.
