    KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan National Security Forces, aided by international troops, secured the Barg-e Matal District center in Nuristan province last night. This operation is in response to the large amount of insurgent activity in the area during previous weeks.

    A sizeable number of ANSF, assisted by a small contingent of coalition partners, is participating in the operation. ISAF units supported the ANSF operation by delivering the troops.

    No shots were fired and no one was harmed during this operation.

    "This successful operation by Afghan forces will return governance to Barg-e Matal," said Zemarai Bashary, the Ministry of Interior spokesman. "This operation shows the improved planning and operational capabilities of our joint forces in response to serious incidents even in the most remote locations of Afghanistan."
