    KABUL- Afghan National Army soldiers, with support from their coalition force partners, executed ground attacks on the towns of Bachancha and Badmuk Monday, clearing them of Taliban fighters and disrupting insurgent operations throughout the region.

    Initial reports indicate more than 30 insurgents were killed with two ANA soldiers killed in action. The ANA and coalition forces took deliberate steps to avoid hurting any innocent civilians during the operation.

    The attacks are part of ongoing security operations that began July 25 with the Afghan Army Commandos air assault on the village of Barg-e Matal.

    "Afghan National Security Forces operations continue to deal a devastating blow to enemy forces who seek safe haven in Nuristan," said U.S. Army Col. Andrew Poppas, Task Force Bastogne commander. "Their devotion to the safety and security of the Afghan people ensures the enemy has no place to hide."
