KABUL- An Afghan and coalition security force detained two suspected insurgents in Ghazni province last night while in pursuit of a Taliban sub-commander who facilitates weapons and provides operations support for the Taliban in the area.
The security force went to a remote compound in Gelan district to search the area. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for the occupants to exit the buildings and then cleared the compound.
After the compound was secure, the security force detained two suspected insurgents for further questioning. No shots were fired and the women and children present were protected throughout the search.
"The Afghan civilian populace deserves a stable community where they are able to live and prosper in a safe environment," said Col. Rafael Torres, ISAF Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director. "Afghan and coalition forces are getting closer and closer to making this a reality with each operation."
