The valorous Mujahideen, two days ago, shot down an American F-16 fighter jet shortly after it took off from Parwan province’s Bagram airbase. The Pentagon also confirmed the downing of their fighter jet in a statement albeit it adopted silence on the cause of the downing.
On the other hand the Mujahideen also conquered Paktika’s Omna district three days ago following a four day siege. All stationed regime troops inside the district center were either killed or fled. The Mujahideen captured large cache of weaponry and equipment.
This is not the first time that the Mujahideen have shot down an American F-16 fighter plane. So far at least three American F-16 airplanes have been shot down in Afghanistan. The famous F-16 costs between 120 and 150 million dollars and forms the backbone of America’s air power. The F-16 fighter, famously known as the Fighting Falcon or Viper is a supersonic multirole fighter aircraft. It was originally developed four decades ago by General Dynamics. Over 4,500 aircraft have so far been manufactured. Although the American Air Force no longer purchases these aircraft yet they control the sale of these aircrafts to foreign buyers. These fighter aircrafts are predominantly sold to Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Turkey as well as a number of other countries.
The fact that the Mujahideen have shot down such a sophisticated aircraft more than once has caused a great deal of anxiety in American military circles. It is wondered whether the Taliban have gained access to modern and sophisticated surface-to-air weaponry that could seriously hamper American air superiority. Without overwhelming air superiority the Americans ground forces will be seriously challenged by the Mujahideen forces.
The downing of American aircrafts as well as the ongoing conquests of new areas has the foreign occupiers in dismay. Previously the Taliban had captured entire districts in the north and south of the country but the capture of two districts (Janikhel and Omna) in the space of a week poses the possibility of another large Taliban front being opened in the east. The Kabul regime’s forces, already stretched to their limit would be completely broken should another large front open to the east. With the Will of Allah Almighty we will soon witness the imminent collapse of this rotten regime’s forces.
