WASHINGTON: Coalition military authorities in Afghanistan say the insurgents who attacked a British airfield in southwestern Afghanistan on Friday, killing two U.S. Marines, wore U.S. Army uniforms and destroyed six Harrier fighter jets.
They said in a statement Saturday that about 15 insurgents carried out the attack, describing the attack as well coordinated by insurgents who were “well equipped, trained and rehearsed.” Fourteen of the 15 were killed. One was captured.
They said attackers penetrated the base’s perimeter and were armed with automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and suicide vests. Besides destroying six planes, they destroyed three refueling stations on the base and damaged six aircraft hangars.
Coalition authorities have not yet identified the two Marines killed. Eight military members and one civilian contractor were also injured in the assault. -- AP
