KABUL, Afghanistan (Oct. 16) - Afghan and coalition forces captured a Haqqani Network leader who maintained weapons caches and planned attacks, during an overnight operation in Paktika province.The leader's capture will help degrade the Haqqani Network's operations in northeastern Pakitka, while enhancing counterinsurgency initiatives in the area.

Intelligence tips led the security force to a series of compounds south of Delay in Ziruk district. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit each compound peacefully, and then the joint security force cleared and secured the area.

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

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


Man... we've been taking a lot of these guys down this year. Kick ass.
