Afghanistan — Operations Continue at Outpost After Attack

KABUL, Afghanistan — Two Afghan civil­ians were killed and scores of Inter­na­tion­al Secu­ri­ty Assis­tance Force ser­vice mem­bers and Afghan civil­ians were injured in a vehi­cle-bomb attack yes­ter­day at Com­bat Out­post Sayed Abad in Afghanistan’s War­dak province.

Sev­en­ty-sev­en ISAF per­son­nel and up to 25 Afghan civil­ians suf­fered non-life-threat­en­ing injuries, offi­cials said, adding that most of the injured ISAF per­son­nel like­ly will return to their duties short­ly.

The injured were tak­en to med­ical facil­i­ties or were treat­ed at the scene.

Offi­cials said the explo­sion dam­aged the outpost’s perime­ter wall and a main­te­nance facil­i­ty, but pro­tec­tive bar­ri­ers around the site absorbed most of the explo­sion.

“The [com­bat out­post] remains oper­a­tional, and pro­tec­tive bar­ri­ers have been repaired after the failed attempt by insur­gents to degrade oper­a­tional capa­bil­i­ties and cause loss of life to coali­tion troops,” ISAF Joint Com­mand offi­cials said in a writ­ten state­ment.
