Afghanistan - Military - US Marines Offensive in Marja

Marines from 3rd Platoon, Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, and Afghan National Army take firing positions in a field after coming under attack with RPGs and small arms, in Marja. The artillery bursts in the distance are US fired smoke rounds that disperse smoke over a wide area. United States Marines and Afghan forces launched Operation Moshtarak, meaning "joint operation," to retake the city of Marja from Taliban forces. The operation is the largest of the war since the invasion, and Marja—long outside of Afghan Government control—is the Taliban's last major stronghold in Helmand Province.
