KABUL, Afghanistan – Coalition forces killed four armed militants and detained five suspected militants during an operation targeting the Taliban’s roadside bomb network in Zabul province, Saturday.

In Qalat District, approximately 120 km northeast of Kandahar, Coalition forces targeted a Taliban militant known to traffic weapons and coordinate roadside bomb attacks along Highway One.

During the operation, Coalition forces were engaged by multiple militants armed with AK-47s.  The force returned fire and killed the four armed militants.

“As Coalition forces disrupt these road-side bomb cells, we save innocent Afghan lives,” said Col. Jerry O’Hara, U.S. Forces Afghanistan spokesman.
