Four Taliban terrorists attacked and exploded 37 trucks that were part of a NATO supply chain in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar on Thursday.

The attack went forth in the parking area of a NATO base located by the Pakistani border, Reuters reported.

Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the governor of the province, said one of the attackers detonated a suicide bomb to spark the explosion. One of the truck drivers was injured in the incident.

The Taliban members are trying to rid the country of foreign fighters and upset the U.S.-supported government, Reuters said.
