HAQQANI FACILTIATOR CAPTURED
ISAF Nabs Another Bad Guy!
By Harold Hutchison
ISAF confirmed the capture of an unidentified Haqqani network facilitator during operations in Paktiya province. The facilitator was believed to have not only provided what the NATO force’s joint command termed “lethal aid” to insurgents, but also to have panned attacks against Afghan and ISAF forces.
During an operation in Helmand province on Saturday, ISAF confirmed that three insurgents were killed. ISAF also reported that nine insurgents were captured during the hunt for a Taliban commander in Kandahar province.
ISAF’s Regional Command East confirmed the death of an insurgent, the capture of another, and the discovery of a weapons cache that included 22 RPGs and a baker’s dozen of 82mm mortar rounds. One IED was also cleared by RE-East forces.
