    KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan and coalition security force captured a Haqqani Network leader known to facilitate the movement of improvised explosive device materials during an operation in Khost province yesterday.

    The targeted individual, who also coordinated IED attacks, is the 12th Haqqani Network leader captured by Afghan and coalition forces in the province this month.

    Intelligence reports led the security force to a compound in Motuni in Terayzai District to search for the Haqqani leader. 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 targeted individual, 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.
