    KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan and coalition security force captured a Haqqani Network facilitator directly involved in planning Haqqani suicide attacks in Kabul during an operation in Khost province yesterday.

    Security forces in eastern Afghanistan are focused on dismantling attack networks operating inside Afghanistan’s capital city. The facilitator is the second insurgent leader linked to Kabul attacks captured this week.

    The security force followed intelligence tips to a compound south of Parokhel in Sabari district to search for the facilitator. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the compound peacefully before the joint security force cleared and secured the area. Initial questioning at the scene helped identify the facilitator, who was detained along with one of his associates.

    The assault force conducted the operation with no shots fired and they ensured the safety of the women and children throughout the search.
