Afghan and coalition security forces captured a Haqqani Network facilitator who endangered the Afghan population by supplying weapons, ammunition and reportedly suicide bombers for attacks throughout Sabari district, during an overnight operation in Khost province.
The facilitator reportedly owned and worked out of a weapons shop in Sabari district.
Intelligence tips led the security force to a compound east of Khost City to search for the facilitator.
Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the buildings peacefully and then the joint security force cleared and secured the compound. After conducting initial questioning with the residents at the scene, the security force identified and detained the facilitator along with several of his associates.
The security force did not fire their weapons and they protected the women and children throughout the search.
