According to unconfirmed reports from regional sources, a US special forces soldier, who was cornered by Taliban militants in the restive Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, miraculously survived by killing at least 7 Taliban fighters using only his knife.

 

While specific details are unavailable due to the nature of the operation, the incident reportedly took place in November 2018 in the Bati Kot district of Nangarhar province, Afghanistan.

 

The special forces soldier reportedly got separated from his unit during an intense firefight in a remote village in the eastern Afghan province. Running low on ammunition, he took refuge in a vacant house as he was pursued by at least 7 heavily armed Taliban militants.

 

By the time his unit located him for extraction from the area, he had either killed or severely wounded all of the militants who pursued him into the house.

 

The reports added that the soldier only suffered minor injuries and his entire unit safely returned from the village in Bati Kot district after completing the operation, which resulted in neutralizing a significant number of Taliban fighters.
