    KABUL - A coalition force air weapons team engaged a truck in Kunduz province yesterday, killing two insurgents and wounding several others after they witnessed the insurgents attacking an Aliabad police station.

    An Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan sub-commander known to conduct attacks on Afghan National Security Force checkpoints throughout the Gor Tapa area and to facilitate ammunition and mortars into the Chahar Darah District reportedly led the attack on the police station.

    The air weapons team tracked the insurgents from the police station and when they determined no civilians were in the area, they engaged the truck. The air weapons team assessed two insurgents killed and several others wounded in the attack. A follow-on security force detained two of the wounded insurgents at the hospital.

    "We will not allow insurgents to get away with these nefarious activities," said U.S. Army Col. Rafael Torres, International Security Assistance Force Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director. "They are standing in the way of peace and security and Afghan and coalition forces will pursue them."

    No one was killed or injured in the Aliabad police station attack.
