    KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan and coalition forces detained numerous suspected insurgents during two operations in Khost and Paktiya provinces yesterday.

    An Afghan and coalition security force detained several suspected insurgents while targeting a Haqqani Network improvised explosive device facilitator in Khost province.

    The facilitator is responsible for the movement of IED materials for insurgent groups to conduct their attacks in Sabari district.

    Intelligence tips led the security force to a compound in Sabari district to search for the facilitator. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the compounds peacefully before the joint security force cleared and secured the area. The security force detained the suspected insurgents after initial questioning at the scene. They also discovered multiple automatic weapons at the scene.

    A separate security force detained several suspected insurgents while targeting a senior Taliban leader in the Bakwah district terrorist network during a joint security operation in Farah province. The targeted individual is responsible for IED emplacement in the area and along the major route connecting Farah to Delaram, Route 515.

    Three Afghan citizens were killed and four seriously wounded in an IED attack earlier in the same day in Kandahar.

    Afghan forces called for all occupants to exit the buildings peacefully before conducting the search. The Afghan and coalition forces detained the individuals based on initial questioning at the scene.

    The joint security team conducted the operations in the hours of darkness to minimize the risk to local citizens. No women or children were injured or detained during these operations.
