News: Pursuit continues for Taliban district leadership in Kandahar

Courtesy Story

KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan and coalition security forces detained one suspected insurgent in Kandahar province Wednesday while in their continued pursuit of the Taliban deputy district leader for Dand.

The targeted individual allocates and distributes ammunition and weapons, including rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns, to fighters in his area. He is also reportedly involved in the acquisition of suicide vests and vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.

Intelligence tips led the security force to a compound in Panjwa’i district. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the buildings peacefully and then the joint security force cleared and secured the compound.

After initial questioning at the scene, the security force detained the suspected insurgent.

The assault force did not fire their weapons and they protected the women and children for the duration of the search.
