Reporting from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq – It was another bloody day wrought with casualties from numerous attacks that did not involve any nationalities that garnered international attention. Several dozen deaths were reported by late last night from conflict areas in the Middle East and parts of North Africa, ending another day with no Americans killed in conflicts abroad. News of the casualties spread nowhere, leaving most Americans free to get on with their days unencumbered by tragedy. Capturing the sentiments of the situation, Daryl Jacobs an undergraduate student at NYU interviewed for this story said, “I’m just glad we’re out of Afghanistan and can put all that, you know, that stuff behind us”.
It is expected that foreign casualties will rise during the week with suicide and truck bombs likely in most regions. Further updates to follow should any American citizens be reported involved in future attacks.
