These soldiers called in an airstrike and got a surprise

In this shocking footage of an airstrike gone wrong. We see what happens when friendly fire occurs in its deadliest form. US mortar teams had spotted Taliban forces lurking in the mountains beyond the post of these soldiers. The team called in an airstrike on the coordinates but somehow missed their shot. Quite unfortunately a 500lb bomb was dropped directly on the scout outpost in this video.

We see the devastating effect of a bomb blast in friendly fire from this video taken in Paktika province, Afghanistan. An army plane had missed the location relayed by the ground team and dropped the bomb short of the target taking out the forward base. Luckily all of the soldiers in this video came out alive. The footage is shocking however and it just goes to show how deeply friendly fire can affect those at war.
