KABUL, Afghanistan – Coalition forces detained six suspected militants while continuing to target Haqqani terrorist networks in Paktia, Sunday.

The operation in Zadran district, located 135 km south of Kabul and the second operation in as many days, targeted a known Haqqani militant believed to be in the direct contact with senior Haqqani leaders and to coordinate and direct terrorist activities aimed at destabilizing the region.  Coalition forces searched the compound without incident, while protecting five women and six children, and detaining six suspected militants.

“The success of each operation not only motivates continued efforts to thwart terrorism,” said Col. Jerry O’Hara, U.S. Forces Afghanistan spokesman. “It sends a message of improved security for the Afghan people.”
