    BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – Coalition forces disrupted Taliban weapons-facilitation operations on April 3 during an operation in Helmand province in which a number of weapons and improvised explosive device materials were seized.

    Coalition forces conducted a search of compounds in the Garmsir District targeting a Taliban insurgent associated with weapons-facilitation operations including the procurement and smuggling of various types of small arms, munitions, fuses and explosives.

    Coalition forces discovered multiple small-arms, rockets, rocket-propelled grenades, large caliber rounds and IED materials in what initially looked to be an abandoned compound. All items were destroyed on-site to protect innocent civilians from inadvertent harm as well as prevent the items' use by extremist forces.
