HELMAND, Mar. 16 – Bahram Chah, a small town near Disho district of Helmand province, lying 200 km to the north of Lashkar Gah city, has been site of deadliest fighting for the past three days.

As per repots the US invading forces accompanied by the puppet police forces entered Jama Khan village of this town and positioned themselves in the laps of Allah-o-Akbar Mountain, trying to plot a ground operation as they were targeted by Mujahideen IED bombings and missiles that forced the enemy forces to retreat with deadliest losses caused to them.

Two of the enemy forces’ tanks got torn part by Mujahideen strikes and bombing, bringing the number of the US tanks destroyed to 19 since the fighting unfolded three days ago. The wreckage of the struck tanks is reported to still exist in the battle ground.

In a statement, the puppet officials claimed they had captured the center of the of Disho district of Helmand which has been in the control of the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate for more than 7 years, and some of the media outlets reported accordingly. Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate render their claims false and baseless.

It is still under the total control of Mujahideen which is not a district but a small border town as Boldak town and is located on the river bank.

Regrettably, the officials of the stooge regime, little knowing about the country and its provinces and districts, called this town a district and claimed to have captured it.
