KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan National Police and Coalition forces detained five suspected militants during a combined operation to disrupt the Haqqani terrorist network in Khost province, Wednesday.

The combined operation in Khost District, approximately 150 km southeast of Kabul, targeted a Haqqani commander, known to facilitate roadside bomb attacks which indiscriminately kill and injure innocent civilians and Coalition forces.  The targeted militant is also believed to plan and conduct attacks against Coalition forces in the Khost area.

The combined force searched the targeted compounds without incident, and detained five suspected militants during the operation that protected seven women and eight children.

“Afghan and Coalition security forces will continue to target these network's leadership to improve the security of the Afghan people,” said Col. Jerry O’Hara, U.S. Forces Afghanistan spokesman.
