A bomb attack in northern Afghanistan has destroyed two trucks carrying supplies to the US-led foreign forces, Press TV reports. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack that was carried out on Thursday. NATO trucks and containers, which carry fuel and supplies for the US-led soldiers in Afghanistan, also come under attack by militants in neighboring Pakistan.
Hundreds of such NATO vehicles have been destroyed in different parts of Pakistan over the past few years.The US military and the NATO rely heavily on the Pakistani supply route into Afghanistan, more so now that the Taliban attacks are increasing. Other routes, largely through Russia and the Central Asian states, have proved to be too costly for the foreign forces, both politically and economically. MSH/HSN
