Afghan national security and International Security Assistance Forces continued to secure numerous areas in the Gor Tepa region of Kunduz province in ISAF’s Regional Command North, Jan. 5.
Denying insurgents freedom of movement and activity, Afghan National Police and coalition forces conducted operations within the vicinity of Larkhabi, Omar Khal and Shinwar.
An improvised explosive device was identified and detonated safely by security forces near the Isa Kahn checkpoint.
The combined effort between ANSF and ISAF has brought about greater security and has afforded residents the opportunity to travel safely throughout the local area as well as expanded the reach of the Afghan government to areas previously held by insurgents.
