KARACHI: A vessel carrying over 600 military vehicles, destined for US forces in Afghanistan, docked at the Karachi port recently.

卡拉奇:近期有装载超过600辆军车的运输船停驻在卡拉奇港,这批卡车将用于装备阿富汗美军。

Such a consignment has arrived after a gap of over six months and will be delivered to US army units stationed in the war-ravaged country.

在超过六个月的间断之后,这次托运终于抵达,并将送到驻扎在这个饱经战火的国家的美军部队手中。

According to official documents, the vehicles were shipped from the Wilmington port and aboard the vessel ‘MV Glovis Sun’ along with other equipment that were unloaded at the Karachi port last month.

根据官方文件,这批车辆和其他装备一起在魏敏顿港装船,乘坐‘MV Glovis Sun’号经过海运,上月在卡拉奇港下船。

Though the category of the trucks was not specified in the documents, port sources said they were Humvee vehicles which were under extensive use of the US army in Afghanistan.

虽然文件并未表明这些车辆的种类,但港口的消息人士称它们是阿富汗美军广泛使用的悍马车。

About six months ago, another vessel carrying a small number of Humvee vehicles was unloaded at the Karachi port. The documents confirm that the importer of the consignment was the US army and dates for the bill of lading were in April and May. The vehicles have a capacity of 2.5 tonnes.

大约六个月前,另一艘载着少量悍马车的货轮在卡拉奇港卸货。文件强调托运的进口商是美军,提货时间在4-5月。这种车辆的载重为2.5吨。

The US has decided to increase the number of its troops in Afghanistan by another 4,500 men, adding to its current strength of 8,500 personnel, according to sources. The American personnel are engaged in the advisory, training and assistance missions, including counterterrorism and air support for the Afghan security forces.

消息人士称美国决定向阿富汗增兵4500人,阿富汗现有美军8500人。美国人事部门正忙于咨询、训练和协助任务,包括为阿富汗安全部队提供反恐和空中支援。

In May, the US army deployed 1,500 Special Forces soldiers to Afghanistan, where attacks by the militant Islamic State group have threatened the stability of the US-backed government.

5月美军在阿富汗部署了1500名特种部队士兵,好战的伊斯兰国团体已经威胁到这个美国支持国家的稳定。

Analysts believe that the arrival of a larger number of military vehicles indicated that the US was planning to prolong its presence in Afghanistan.

分析人士相信这一大批军用车辆的抵达表明美军计划延长在阿富汗的存在。
