    KABUL, Afghanistan – The International Security Assistance Force confirmed Afghan and coalition forces captured a key Taliban weapons facilitator in Zharay district, Kandahar province, Dec. 18.

    The joint security team specifically targeted the individual for facilitating the movement of weapons between Iran and Kandahar through Nimroz province. The now-detained man was considered a Kandahar-based weapons facilitator with direct ties to other Taliban leaders in the province.

    Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call out the occupants from the targeted buildings peacefully before conducting a search. The Afghan and coalition forces detained two additional suspects based on initial questioning at the scene.

    The joint security teams conducted this operation in the hours of darkness to minimize the risk to local citizens. No women or children were injured or detained during this operation.

    The security forces conducted the operation without firing their weapons.
