In the article “Combined Forces Net Drugs, Weapons in Afghanistan” by American Forces Press Service, what matters is Combined Afghan-international operations in Afghanistan killed several insurgents in recent days and led to drug and weapons confiscations. A combined patrol operating in the Koti village of Kapisa province, used intelligence information to conduct an operation against an insurgent leader responsible for supplying weapons and equipment used in attacks against Afghan forces and members of the International Security Assistance Force.During the operation, several armed men were observed near the compound. When the men displayed hostile intent, the patrol took defensive measures, killing several of the men. I think that the strict use of deadly force in a hostile situation is a good thing because if we find that they are hostile we will take them down without warning and I think that taking no chances is the best way to go. A combined force operating in the Spin Boldak district of Kandahar province discovered a large amount of drugs. Led by Afghan National Police, the patrol discovered about 1,700 pounds of hashish on the trailer of a broken tractor. The drugs were confiscated and moved to a nearby police compound.Another time, Afghan forces turned a large weapons cache over to an ISAF explosive ordnance disposal team in the Bala Boluk district of Farah province yesterday. The cache consisted of three rockets, three mortar rounds, 30 hand grenades, 24 rocket-propelled grenade warheads, more than 700 large-caliber machine gun rounds, a pistol and a radio.
