ISAF confirmed that two Taliban leaders in Helmand province were killed during operations in Afghanistan last week. The Taliban leaders were identified as Tanim and Gul Ahmed.
Tanim, who was killed on 18 March, had directed attacks against ISAF and Afghan forces. He also was involved in recruiting new insurgents and had taken part in sham legal proceedings. Gul Ahmed, killed on 17 March, was also responsible for attacks against ISAF and Afghan forces.
ISAF’s Regional Command East announced that over the last three days, it has disarmed 16 improvised explosive devices, including 13 on 24 March. RC East also confirmed that 15 insurgents were captured and three were killed during operations.
