Marines in Afghanistan's Helmand say Donald Trump's decision to keep boots on the ground indefinitely gives them "all the time in the world" to retake the province, once the symbol of US intervention but now a Taliban stronghold. They may need it.

A suicide attack in Afghanistan injured four U.S. service members Monday in Kandahar Province.

The suicide bomber hit a military convoy carrying U.S. troops in southern Afghanistan by Kandahar Air Field, but so far it appears that the U.S. soldiers were only injured, not killed, Stars and Stripes reports.

The attack was conducted using a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device.

Kandahar Air Field is home to U.S. and coalition forces. All four soldiers are currently in stable condition.

“We are aware of the reports of a VBIED In Kandahar province. We are looking into the details and will respond with more information as soon as appropriate,” Army Lt. Col. Koné Faulkner, Resolute Support spokesman, told Military Times.

The Taliban has already claimed responsibility for the attack.

Also on Monday, the Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack, in which militants used night-vision goggles to kill eight Afghan police officers in their beds. Afghan authorities believe there may have been an infiltrator. The attack against the officers on Monday was the deadliest specifically against police since Oct. 17, which is when the Taliban killed more than 40 law enforcement members.
