Afghanistan/ISAF — Afghan, ISAF Operations in Khost Province

KABUL, Afghanistan (July 8) — An Afghan-inter­na­tion­al secu­ri­ty force cap­tured a Haqqani net­work impro­vised explo­sive device (IED) mate­r­i­al facil­i­ta­tor and sev­er­al oth­er sus­pect­ed insur­gents in Khost province last night.

The com­bined secu­ri­ty force detained the insur­gents, one of whom iden­ti­fied him­self as the tar­get­ed facil­i­ta­tor, while search­ing a com­pound near the vil­lage of Khva­jeh Moham­mad Kala, Ter­ayzai dis­trict. The secu­ri­ty force found mul­ti­ple auto­mat­ic weapons, ammu­ni­tion and grenades on the scene. No shots were fired and women and chil­dren were pro­tect­ed by the com­bined secu­ri­ty force.

This is the third recent suc­cess­ful oper­a­tion against this insur­gent cell. Afghan and inter­na­tion­al forces killed Wahidul­lah, a Haqqani net­work com­man­der and IED spe­cial­ist, who was part of the cap­tured facilitator’s cell, May 13. A joint force also cap­tured five of the facilitator’s asso­ciates, includ­ing his direct sub­or­di­nate, June 24.
