The attached video of thermal footage was recorded from an AC-130 gunship from a mile or more away.

No rounds were fired by the aircraft. The problem solved itself with no American intervention. Some jihadists were trying to bury a roadside bomb made from a 155 mm artillery shell. Evidently they lost the instruction manual.....and maybe even failed the road side bomb class.
