News: Afghan and coalition force captures Taliban facilitator in Kabul

Courtesy Story

KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan and coalition forces continue to round up Taliban leaders who were considered a direct threat to the International Kabul Conference currently ongoing in the capital city.

Afghan and coalition forces detained a Taliban facilitator, July 20, believed to be in final preparation stages for attacks against the conference. He is assessed to facilitate suicide bombers and weapons for the Kabul Attack Network.

The security force went to the compound near Ahangaran in Musahi district and Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to peacefully exit the buildings. After the compound was cleared and secured, the combined security force detained the facilitator.

No shots were fired and women and children present were protected throughout the operation.

Afghan and coalition forces captured a Taliban sub-commander and two additional facilitators this week. Through these operations, ISAF forces were able to locate and destroy a large cache of dozens of mortars, rocket boosters, rocket propelled grenades and two remote-controlled improvised explosive devices located within the city of Kabul.
