PARWAN PROVINCE, Afghanistan – District Gov., Dr. Fazil Muslim, hosted a security shura with Afghan National Security Forces on Dec. 3 to reinforce security measures in the Sayed Abad District.

The governor stated he was tired of the discussions that occur during the security meetings, but never formalizing plans to combat insurgents conducting attacks in Sayed Abad.

A U.S. coalition representative said, “The [governor] and the District Chief of Police realize the need for interoperability between ANSF elements in Sayed Abad District to conduct successful operations to degrade the Taliban’s influence and power.”

During the shura, Muslim decided that ANSF need to concentrate on reducing vehicle-borne threats and attacks targeting the district center, which normally result in civilian casualties.

Afghan forces including the Afghan Special Forces, Afghan uniformed Police, and National Directorate of Security officials proposed several security plans to Muslim, added the representative.

“This shows the combined effort and willingness to support Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in taking an active role against the insurgency,” he said.

The governor also reported that five police checkpoints along the district’s Highway 1 will be turned over to the Afghan National Army.
