GHAZNI PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Members of Task Force Gambler, Texas Agribusiness Development Teams 3 and 4, and one Illinois International Security Assistance Force member were diverted from a scheduled mission in two UH-60 Black Hawks Oct. 11 to help local Afghans drive out insurgents from a village in Qarabagh District.


The team inside the helicopters observed insurgents firing rockets into the village and firing small arms and rocket-propelled grenades toward an Afghan security group in the village.

“The insurgents clearly had no concern for the safety of the local Afghans who were all endangered by their actions,” said 2nd Lt. Grant Gillaspy from Fort Worth, Texas, currently serving with the Texas ADT.

The two Black Hawks received small-arms fire while they flew over the village to gain positive identification of the insurgents. After confirmation that civilians were out of the target range, the coalition aircraft returned fire, and killed four insurgents and wounded one.

This was the second time within one week insurgents fired rockets into local villages. It is also one of several recent reports that seem to indicate a growing number of attempts by local Afghans to protect villages from insurgent activity.
