KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan-international security force captured a Haqqani network facilitator and several other suspected insurgents in Khost province last night.

The combined security force moved to a compound east of Langharah, Tanai district, after intelligence information verified militant activity. During a search of the buildings the assault force captured the Haqqani facilitator who is involved in the movement of foreign fighters and improvised explosive devices from Pakistan. He is well-connected to senior level Haqqani commanders in Khost and Paktiya and his efforts led to suicide bombings against civilians in Khost.

The combined force detained the individuals while searching a series of buildings in a rural area of the Bala Boluk district after intelligence information discovered militant activity.

The search team found multiple rifles, ammunition casings and approximately 70 kilograms of wet opium.
