U.S. Marines launched a new offensive against the Taliban in Afghanistan overnight. At least 1,000 Marines dropped into the Helmand Province region of Afghanistan, which has been a Taliban stronghold. The report shows some of the action taking place there. The purpose of the offensive is to reverse Taliban momentum in the south of the country, and to "cut off enemy supply and communications lines to the north."
