A US soldier inspects the site of a suicide attack targeting foreign troops in Jalalabad on November 13, 2014Barack Obama has extended the combat role for US troops in Afghanistan for another year, in a classified order he signed in recent weeks, the New York Times reported Friday. Previously, the president had said US-led NATO combat operations would finish at the end of this year. The NATO follow up mission, to take over on January 1 with 9,800 US troops and about 3,000 soldiers from Germany, Italy and other member nations, was to focus on supporting Afghan forces as they take on the Taliban, in parallel with US counter-terrorism operations. The new order also allows for air support -- from US jets, bombers and drones -- for Afghan combat missions.
