Responding from two different calls from the citizens of Parwan, an ANP explosive ordinance disposal team, with assistance from Coalition Forces, planned and organized the operation to recover both caches.
The caches included one anti-tank mine hidden in a wall, and multiple anti-personnel mines, shape charges, time fuses and sticks of dynamite. These munitions are often used in roadside bombs, which have killed Afghan civilians.
“We are very encouraged to hear that citizens of Parwan Province are taking action to make their communities a safer place to live, work and raise their children,” said U.S. Army Col. Will Roy, commander 86th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Mountain), Task Force Wolverine.
If anyone knows the location of any weapons caches or unexploded ordinance they should call the Parwan Community Safety Line at 0796503599.
