KABUL, Afghanistan (Oct. 7) - Coalition forces conducted a
precision airstrike and follow-on operation in Takhar Wednesday, killing
Maulawi Jawadullah, the Taliban district leader for Yangi Qalah of
Takhar, along with seven of his associates.
Maulawi Jawadullah was directly responsible for organizing and
holding kidnapped Afghan National Police and Security Force members,
while also endangering the Afghan people by conducting improvised
explosive device and ambush operations in the northern part of the
province. He is also linked to the recent deaths of at least 10 ANP
during an attack on a police station in Kunduz.
The security force tracked the targeted individual among a group
of insurgents to a remote area of neighboring Darquad district. After
verifying insurgent activity and ensuring no civilians were present,
coalition forces conducted a precision air strike on the group.
A follow-on Afghan and coalition ground force dispatched to the
strike area to assess the results. Three insurgents hiding in a nearby
wood line were killed after they threatened the security force.
The security force also confirmed five insurgents killed in the
strike and found multiple automatic weapons and grenades at the scene.
Initial reporting indicates no civilians were killed during the
operation.
