    BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan – Several insurgents were killed Thursday during a coalition forces operation to disrupt Taliban support operations in Helmand province.

    Coalition forces searched compounds in 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.

    During their search, coalition forces were fired upon by an unknown number of insurgents from the compounds. Coalition forces responded with small arms and airstrikes, killing several of their attackers.

    Numerous PK machine-guns, AK-47's, rocket propelled grenades, mortar rounds, fuses, small-arms ammunition and ammunition vests were discovered on the compound. Coalition forces destroyed these items to prevent future use.
