By New York Post. A deadly gunfight broke out at Afghanistan’s main airport early Monday, with an Afghan guard killed and several others injured as US and German soldiers exchanged fire with unidentified gunmen, officials said.
The latest fatality at the troubled airport came just before 4:15 a.m. as Afghan security forces helping secure the base exchanged fire with the unidentified attackers, the German military said on Twitter.
CNN reported that a sniper outside the airport had fired at Afghan guards inside, who then returned fire.
Sources told the outlet that in the confusion, US soldiers may have also shot at the Afghan soldiers — who are there to help the desperate scramble of thousands trying to flee Taliban rule — after the Afghans returned fire.
German and American troops “participated in further exchange of fire,” the German army said in a statement. (Read more from “Airport Gunfight: Showdown in Kabul as U.S., German Forces Exchange Fire With Gunman” HERE)
SEAL Who Shot Bin Laden Says He’d Just Need 9 Guys to Save Americans in Kabul
By Newsweek. A former Navy SEAL who shot Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden told Fox News on Friday that he could rescue Americans from Kabul with “nine guys” amid the Taliban takeover of the country.
Robert O’Neill discussed the situation in Afghanistan on Primetime with Will Cain and suggested that many U.S. admirals and generals should have resigned or been fired over recent events in the country.
O’Neill was a member of SEAL Team Six, which undertook the raid that killed bin Laden in 2011 in Abbottabad, Pakistan. He later claimed to have delivered the fatal blow to bin Laden himself, though this claim has proven controversial and has been disputed by another Navy SEAL who was involved. . .
“Look, I don’t want to be in charge, but if I was – oh I want to get the Americans? Cool. Give me nine guys. I’m gonna walk through the streets and I’m gonna kill everyone I see, and I’m gonna grab the Americans. It is not difficult,” O’Neill said.
