Combined Force Kills Insurgents in Afghanistan

From an International Security Assistance Force Joint Command News Release

KABUL, Afghanistan, June 15, 2010 – An Afghan-international force killed several armed insurgents in Afghanistan’s Kapisa province while pursuing a Taliban commander last night, military officials said.

The combined security force went to a compound in the province’s Tagab district after intelligence information confirmed insurgent activity.

Fleeing insurgents armed with automatic weapons and grenades fired on the security force, which returned fire and killed the insurgents.

The Taliban commander is believed to be responsible for attacks against coalition forces. The Taliban chieftain also is linked to the planning of more attacks.

The security force protected several women and children during the operation, officials said.
