Afghanistan — Forces Detain Suspects in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan, June 8, 2010 — An Afghan-inter­na­tion­al secu­ri­ty force detained mul­ti­ple sus­pect­ed insur­gents dur­ing oper­a­tions in Afghanistan’s Hel­mand province yes­ter­day.

The com­bined force detained the men while search­ing a series of com­pounds west of Mar­jah, where intel­li­gence iden­ti­fied mil­i­tant activity. 

Anoth­er com­bined force detained two sus­pect­ed insur­gents as the force tracked a Tal­iban weapons traf­fick­er in Kan­da­har province yesterday. 

The force detained the sus­pects at a com­pound north of the vil­lage of Mol­laka­lo Nikeh, Zharay dis­trict, based on intel­li­gence. About 100 pounds of wet opi­um was found on site.

Anoth­er com­bined patrol found three weapons caches in the Tarin Kot dis­trict of Uruz­gan province yes­ter­day. The cache con­sist­ed of 23 rock­et-pro­pelled grenades, five 82mm mor­tar rounds, 17 rock­et-pro­pelled grenade fuel cells, 2,000 7.62mm rounds, a num­ber of artillery fus­es and a num­ber of weapons parts. The cache was destroyed. No shots were fired and no one was harmed dur­ing the above operations. 

In oth­er news, Afghan secu­ri­ty forces with their NATO Inter­na­tion­al Secu­ri­ty Assis­tance Force part­ners con­duct­ed a June 5 oper­a­tion south of Rowzeh Bagh, Her­at province, to dis­rupt a Tal­iban net­work respon­si­ble for sup­ply­ing impro­vised explo­sive device mate­r­i­al, weapons and sup­plies in Hel­mand province. 

After sur­round­ing the com­pounds where mem­bers of the insur­gent net­work were sus­pect­ed to be, Afghan spe­cial police called for the occu­pants to sur­ren­der. One insur­gent was killed when he exit­ed a com­pound and pre­sent­ed an immi­nent threat with a weapon to the com­bined force. The com­bined force ensured the rest of the com­pound res­i­dents exit­ed the com­pound safely. 

Afghan police took pos­ses­sion of the insur­gent who was killed, and sev­er­al men were detained by the com­bined force. No civil­ians were injured in the operation.
