The U.S. military has launched two drone strikes against Taliban positions in northern Afghanistan, a U.S. defense official told Fox News on Friday.
The strikes came hours before Afghan President Ashraf Ghani is set to meet President Biden at the White House Friday afternoon.
An unknown number of Taliban fighters were killed in Baghlan and Kunduz provinces, where the strikes took place.
Three more districts fell to the Taliban overnight.
Meanwhile, Afghan forces took back six other districts elsewhere in the country in the past 24 hours, according to TOLO News in Kabul.
Some U.S. officials think Kabul could fall to the Taliban in a matter of months after American forces withdraw.
The U.S. military is preparing to pull most of its remaining forces from Afghanistan in the coming weeks, well ahead of the 9/11 deadline announced by President Biden.
