ISAF Joint Command - Afghanistan

For Immediate Release

KABUL, Afghanistan (April 23) - During a joint Afghan-International security force operation in Logar province last night, the combined force killed five insurgents after receiving heavy and sustained gunfire from a compound.

The joint security force went to a compound in Qal'eh ye Seyyedan, in the Pul-e Alam district after intelligence indicated insurgent activity. As the combined force approached the compound they began receiving hostile fire from different points including heavy machine gun fire. The security force returned fire and maneuvered through the compound buildings. The buildings were barricaded and the force began exchanging gunfire with the personnel inside.

A search of the compound by the security force found multiple automatic rifles, armor piercing rounds, IED materials, and blasting caps. A Taliban suicide attack commander, with ties to the Haqqani network, was killed in the firefight, along with four other insurgents.

Two US service members subsequently died of their wounds suffered in this firefight.

No civilians were reported harmed in the operation.


I don't believe them.

Let's withdraw & moot the point.
