Breaking the fast with NDS

U.S. Army soldiers assigned to 2/10 Security Forces Assistance Brigade pose for a photograph with Col. Dennis S. Sullivan (centered left) and Afghan Chief of the National Directorate of Security for Paktika province Brig. Gen. Mohammad Jasim (center right), after an Iftar dinner held at the NDS building Aug 2, 2013. Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramazan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together. Traditionally but not mandatory, three dates are eaten to break the fast in emulation of the Prophet Muhammad, who broke his fast in this manner.
