US aircraft crashed in eastern Afghanistan, AP reported referring to a Taliban spokesperson.
A spokeswoman for the U.S. Army declined to comment on the Taliban’s statement, but the footage from the crash site, shared on social media, shows that this is a US Air Force plane.
Afghan journalist Tarik Ghaznival told the AP that he had seen a burning plane. According to him, he saw two bodies, the front of the aircraft was badly burned, and the body and tail of the aircraft were practically not damaged. However, the AP notes that this information could not be verified from independent sources.
Taliban spokesman Zabihulla Mujahid said the US Air Force crashed in Ghazni. According to him, the crash site was about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from the US military base.
US Central Command spokeswoman Beth Riordan declined to comment on Taliban claims.
She previously admitted that US military officials are investigating reports of a disaster in Afghanistan.
