In a recent statement that has been confirmed by the US military, there have been 15 Al Qaeda militants that have died. Although it is not the goal to have any of the enemy military troops to die, it is known that all military moves should be used at the protection of keeping the American troops alive.
It was on September 11, 2001, that there were the worst terrorist attacks that have ever taken place on American soil, all of which has stemmed back from Al Qaeda militants. This has laid a substantial amount of military action against the Al Qaeda troops, who have been vigilant and highly destructive towards the United States military.
Having 15 Al Qaeda soldiers die in war is often seen as a successful move for the US military, as there are that many fewer Al Qaeda militants that can cause terror and fear on the US military troops as well as civilians. This attack came as a result of approximately 30 to 40 Al Qaeda militants attacking American troops at a checkpoint area. It was two checkpoints that were attacked simultaneously, causing great chaos and confusion for many who were in the area. Luckily, there were no American troops that were injured in the process of the attack.
