Taliban Post Dramatic Video Showing The Destruction Of An Afghan Military Helicopter Seconds After It Landed

Long War Journal: Afghan military helicopter destroyed in Taliban IED attack

The Taliban published a dramatic video touting the destruction of an Afghan military helicopter just seconds after it landed on a remote outpost in a mountainous area of Afghanistan. The Taliban has infiltrated Afghan military outposts in the past and conducted similar attacks.

The video, which was posted by a Taliban supporter in mid-May, is narrated by Taliban fighters who recorded the attack. It is unclear when or where the attack took place.

The helicopter, which appeared to be a Mi-8 Hip transport, was recorded as it approached the mountaintop base and lands. Just seconds after landing, the helicopter was destroyed in a massive blast that toppled the aircraft and propelled
parts of the rotor into the air.

Thank you for your input Hans. I have not seen this video before, nor the date of when it was taken. The Long War Journal is saying the same thing.
