Taliban IED expert confirmed captured
The International Security Assistance Force confirmed the capture of a Taliban leader for the Baraki Barak area of Logar province during a Nov. 22 operation.
The targeted individual acted as an improvised explosive device and weapons expert for the Taliban while also planning and executing attacks against Afghan and coalition forces in Baraki Barak.
Intelligence reports led the security force to a remote compound in Baraki Barak district to search for the individual. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the compounds peacefully before the joint security force cleared and secured the area. The security force detained the targeted individual and two of his associates after initial questioning at the scene.
The assault force did not fire their weapons and they protected the women and children for the duration of the search.
