Coalition Forces in Afghanistan Kill Enemy Fighters

American Forces Press Service

Aug. 24, 2008 - Coalition forces killed "multiple militants" yesterday during an operation to disrupt militant activities in Afghanistan's Kapisa province,
military officials reported. The force searched a remote area in the province's Tag Ab district targeting a senior Taliban commander smuggling weapons and foreign fighters into Afghanistan, as well as organizing rocket, roadside-bomb and suicide attacks against coalition and NATO forces.

During the operation, armed militants engaged the force. Coalition forces responded with small-arms fire, killing the militants, officials said. Coalition forces searched the area and discovered multiple AK-47 assault rifles and machine guns. The weapons were destroyed to prevent future use.
