Disarming IEDs, Training New Afghan Troops
By Harold Hutchison
ISAF has not only been fighting insurgents, but they have also been helping establish a means for Afghans to fight the Taliban themselves. One area where this has shown has been in disarming IEDs.
On 11 April, Afghan units disarmed three IEDs in ISAF’s Regional Command East. One IED was disarmed in Wardak province, another in Logar province, and the third in Ghazni province. This took the total of IEDs cleared in RC-East to 28 over the course of the last week.
