    WARDAK PROVINCE, Afghanistan- Afghan commandos detained four insurgents and discovered weapons Sept. 20 during a clearing operation in Wardak province’s Sayed Abad District to reduce insurgent attacks in Baghak village along Highway 1.

    The commandos, from the 6th Special Operations Kandak, were clearing Baghak village when 12 heavily-armed insurgents opened fire. The elite commandos immediately returned fire discovering the insurgents had been trying to conceal the weapons.

    Although four enemy fighters were detained, several others fled. Following the attack, the commandos found and destroyed a 107 mm rocket and an 82 mm recoilless rifle round.

    The detainees were transferred to the Sayed Abad District National Security Directorate.

    There were no Afghan military, insurgent or civilian casualties reported.

    “As commandos, we are more than willing to go into the districts and clear the area of the enemy,” said Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim, Afghan National Army Special Operations Command commander. “We will destroy the enemy, so we can all hopefully live in a safe and peaceful environment.”
