    KABUL, Afghanistan - A combined force of more than 600 Afghan and International Security Assistance Forces are conducting operations against al-Qaida and Taliban insurgents in Kunar province June 27.

    At present, a number of insurgents have been killed in the attack against al-Qaida and Taliban leadership in the area.

    ISAF and Afghan authorities confirm three of their forces have died in the battle, including two U.S. service members.

    "We will continue to take the fight to the enemy alongside our Afghan partners," said Maj. Gen. John F. Campbell, commanding general of Regional Command-East. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families who lost loved ones in the fight against our common enemies, the Taliban and al-Qaida".

    The combined force has taken precautions to prevent collateral damage, and ISAF has no reports of injuries to civilians.

    The fighting is ongoing.
