Taliban IED Facilitator Killed in Logar ISAF Joint Command - Afghanistan
2010-08-CA-195 

 KABUL, Afghanistan (Aug. 17) - An Afghan and coalition security force killed Bilal, a highly active Taliban facilitator responsible for improvised explosive device and indirect fire attacks against Afghan civilians and Afghan and coalition forces in Logar province Monday. 

The facilitator had direct ties to the Taliban network involved in the recent kidnapping and murders of two U.S. Navy sailors, Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin McNeley and Petty Officer 3rd Class Jarod Newlove, last month. It is currently unknown what role, if any, Bilal played in the kidnapping. 

"We are happy to announce the results of this successful operation. This man was a known criminal who regularly facilitated rocket attacks against Afghan and coalition forces," said U.S. Army Col. Rafael Torres, International Security Assistance Force Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director. 

"Bilal was also associated with a violent network directly responsible in the kidnapping and vicious killing of two American sailors." 

As the security force approached the targeted compound west of Molla Alim in Charkh district, Bilal, who was armed with an AK-47, ran away from one of the buildings. He attempted to hide amongst two civilian farmers, but when the security force caught up with him, he engaged the assault force. They returned fire, killing him. The farmers were not injured. After the area was secure, Afghan forces called for all occupants to exit the compound peacefully and then cleared the buildings. After questioning all the residents on scene, the assault force detained one suspected insurgent. 

The security force protected the women and children for the duration of the search.

For Immediate Release KABUL, Afghanistan (June 22) - An Afghan-international security force detained the Taliban's recently appointed chief of finance for Baghlan Province, along with two other suspected insurgents, in Helmand Province last night. 

The Taliban finance chief is also an improvised explosive device (IED) expert and former district commander of at least three insurgent cells near Mangal village in Baghlan Province. 

After intelligence sources confirmed his location, a security force went to a compound near Tajdar-e Vali, Nahr-e Saraj district, and searched the area. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for the finance chief to give himself up, and when there was no response the assault force entered the compound. 
No shots were fired and the women and children present during the search were protected by the combined force. 

This operation is another example of recent successes against Taliban networks in Baghlan Province. In late May, the joint force removed three successively appointed Taliban provincial shadow governors for the province. Mullah Ruhullah was killed along with his deputy on May 14. His replacement, Maulawi Jabbar, was killed along with two Taliban commanders on May 28. Three days later his replacement was detained by Afghan and coalition forces.

Precision Air Strike Conducted After Attack

Precision Air Strike Conducted After Attack 
ISAF Joint Command - Afghanistan
2010-08-CA-303 
 KABUL, Afghanistan (Aug. 28) - Coalition forces conducted a precision air strike on a truck occupied by three Haqqani Network fighters after they attempted to attack Forward Operating Base Salerno in Khost province today. 

Mudasir, a Haqqani Network facilitator for improvised explosive devices and suicide bombers, was killed in the strike along with two additional insurgents. Mudasir, who is also known as Qari Ishaq, had direct ties to Haqqani Network senior leadership based in Pakistan and was a teacher at a madrassa known to facilitate suicide bombers. 

Sources tracked the vehicle from the vicinity of FOB Salerno and after verifying insurgent activity and ensuring no civilians were present, an air weapons team engaged the vehicle, which subsequently exploded. A follow-on ground force confirmed the three insurgents were killed in the engagement. 

Afghan and coalition forces killed 13 Haqqani Network insurgents, four of which were wearing suicide vests, as they attempted to attack FOB Salerno early this morning. Afghan and coalition forces also detained five insurgents and destroyed a recoilless rifle at the scene. No Afghan or coalition forces were killed in the attack. 

"The Haqqani Network and their fellow insurgents have failed to cause significant damage or casualties on any of their attempted attacks on coalition bases over the last several months," said U.S. Army Col. Rafael Torres, International Security Assistance Force Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director. "These insurgents will be held responsible, which was evident in this strike."
