ORUZGAN, Afghanistan – An Afghan Security Guard member was shot by a member of the Taliban after an attempted kidnapping in Deh Rawod Aug. 27.

While meeting with local Afghans, the ASG member was confronted by four members of the Taliban. After a brief discussion, the Taliban unsuccessfully attempted to kidnap the local Afghan. He escaped the group, but was later shot.

He was transported to a local Coalition forces medical facility where he received medical treatment for his wounds.

“This is another example of a Taliban failure to intimidate Afghan civilians who are supportive of a stable and secure Afghan government,” said Maj. Paul Oliver, spokesman for Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan.
