    KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan-international security force detained a number of individuals suspected of insurgent activity in Helmand province last night.

    The combined security force detained the individuals while searching a series of compounds west of Marjah, after intelligence information discovered militant activity.

    Another Afghan-international security force detained two individuals suspected of insurgent activity as the force tracked a Taliban weapons facilitator in Kandahar province last night.

    The suspected insurgents were detained by the combined force at a compound north of the village of Mollakalo Nikeh, Zharay District, after intelligence information revealed insurgent activity.
    Approximately 45 kilograms of wet opium was also found on site.

    A joint Afghan-international patrol found three weapons caches in Tarin Kot District, Uruzgan province, yesterday.

    The cache consisted of 23 rocket propelled grenades, five 82mm mortar rounds, 17 rocket propelled grenade fuel cells, 2,000 7.62mm rounds, a number of artillery fuses and a number of weapons parts. The cache was destroyed.

    No shots were fired and no one was harmed during the above operations.

    Afghan national security forces along with their ISAF partners conducted an operation south of Rowzeh Bagh, Herat province, Saturday afternoon, to disrupt a Taliban network responsible for supplying improvised explosive device material, weapons and supplies in Helmand province.

    After surrounding the compounds where members of the insurgent network were suspected to be, Afghan special police called for the individuals to surrender. One insurgent was killed when he exited a compound and presented an imminent threat with a weapon to the combined force. The combined force ensured the rest of the compound residents exited the compound safely.

    Afghan police took possession of the insurgent who was killed, and several men were detained by the combined force. No civilians were injured in the operation.
