BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan (CNN) -- An intense air campaign was under way Thursday near southern Afghanistan's Tor Ghar Mountains after forces believed to belong to the Taliban opened fire on a U.S. Special Forces unit and an Afghan militia force, according to a U.S coalition statement.
The battle started Wednesday afternoon when about 40 anti-coalition troops began shooting at U.S. and Afghan soldiers.
Special Forces radioed for air support, which arrived and dropped 35,000 pounds of munition during the night.
There were no reports of U.S. or coalition casualties as of early Thursday, but an Afghan soldier had to be medically evacuated to Kandahar after being shot in the abdomen. Doctors performed surgery, and the soldier remains in stable condition, the coalition statement said.
