The Taliban claim they can still use grenades and piles of ammunition left behind at a CIA base in Kabul after US troops hurriedly blew up the complex before withdrawing from Afghanistan.
Members of the Taliban’s elite Badri 313 unit were pictured inspecting the ruins — including demolished buildings and destroyed vehicles — on Tuesday after the US destroyed the CIA base back on Aug. 28.
Taliban commander Mullah Hasnain claimed that grenades packed in dozens of crates filled with rockets were still usable — despite the US saying they’d left as little military equipment as possible behind for the militants.
“We can still shoot with them,” Hasnain said of the piles of unused ammunition scattered across the ground, according to Agence France-Presse.
The Taliban commander said they stood by and watched US troops blow up the CIA base and boasted of how they didn’t stop American forces from leaving.
