That's a Good Kill Ratio

An American-Afghan offensive against ISIL forces in Afghanistan did some serious damage to the terror group trying to set up a sanctuary there:

ISIS' main stronghold in Afghanistan was captured by U.S and Afghan Special Forces after a prolonged assault that killed nearly 170 terrorist fighters and resulted in no American deaths, military officials said Saturday.

The multi-staged military operation in Deh Bala, located on the border with Pakistan, began in April but wrapped up in June, military officials told Reuters.

No American or Afghan troops were killed during the offensive, which involved 600 Green Berets and three Afghan commando companies, according to

That's an impressive record. I'm assuming a lot of precision firepower was used to keep allied casualties zero, despite the operation beginning in April.

Sometimes people just need to be killed.
