The one minute 35 second clip, uploaded to YouTube, begins with footage of a large, grey triangular-shaped ‘craft’ hovering in the sky above the eastern city of Asadabad.
As the crew of a Nato armoured vehicle watch on in the foreground, flashing lights suddenly flash spit forth from the underside of the mysterious object.
It quickly becomes apparent that the craft has opened fire on something or someone, for barely a second later, explosions can be seen and heard and a huge plume of smoke mushrooms into the firmament.
