The U.S. Tuesday recovered the remains of two personnel from a U.S. military plane that crashed in American, Afghanistan, and Afghan officers said.
On Monday, the U.S. army stated an E-11A plane had crashed in the province of Ghazni; however, disputed claims by the Taliban militant group that they had brought it down.
Earlier Tuesday, Afghan forces and Taliban fighters clashed in a central region where the U.S. navy aircraft crashed as the federal government tried to reach the wreckage site in a Taliban stronghold.
The assertion stated that the stays had been “treated with dignity and respect by the local Afghan group.”
The forces recovered what is believed to be the flight information recorder and the shattered remnants of the aircraft.
A U.S. defense official, talking on condition of anonymity, stated multiple attempts had been made to recover the remains; however, they had been hindered by the terrain and weather.
The official stated the aircraft was carrying no other people apart from the two service members.
Ghazni police chief, Khalid Wardak, said U.S. forces had airlifted two bodies from the crash site on Tuesday.
The incident got here as the Taliban and the U.S. have been in talks to end the 18-year battle in Afghanistan.
Trump has called for an end to U.S. intervention in Afghanistan, which started with an American invasion caused by the September 11, 2001, offensives that al Qaeda launched from then-Taliban-dominated Afghanistan.
Discussions between the two sides started in 2019 in Doha; however, they have been interrupted at least twice after the Taliban offensives on the U.S. army officials in September and December.
