“Almost 40 strikes hit Afghanistan every day in September [2019], new Pentagon figures show, working out as more than 1,100 over the month, a significant rise.

The number of US strikes has been increasing in recent months, but this latest jump is dramatic. There were 1,113 strikes in September compared with 810 strikes in August, and 537 in July.

It follows the collapse of US and Taliban peace negotiations in early September. The talks were suspended by President Donald Trump after the killing of a US soldier in Kabul.”
