    KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan and coalition security force captured a Taliban senior leader who leads up to 20 fighters in the Sistani area of Marjah district, along with two of his associates, during an overnight operation in Helmand province.

    Intelligence tips led the joint security force to a remote compound in Marjah district to search for the targeted individual. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the buildings peacefully and then the joint security force cleared and secured the compound.

    After initial questioning with the residents at the scene, the security force identified and detained the targeted individual along with his associates.

    The security force did not fire their weapons and they protected the women and children for the duration of the search.
