    KABUL, Afghanistan (October 30) — An Afghan-international security force detained a group of suspected militants in Paktya province after searching a number of buildings known to be used by a Haqqani facilitator responsible for the financing and supply of terrorist camps in the Khowst-Gardez Pass area.

    The partnered security force targeted the buildings near the village of Kandaw Kalay after intelligence indicated militant activity. The joint force detained the suspected militants after searching the compound without incident. No shots were fired and no one was injured.

    The Haqqani Network has developed an extensive system of supply routes in eastern Afghanistan used to arm, man and equip its militant elements and training camps within the country. Afghan and international security forces are partnering to block these routes and ensure the safety and well being of the Afghan people.
