The joint force targeted on Thursday a Talibaninfo-icon weapons expert who the alliance said was directly responsible for a February suicide attack in the district and coordinated with Taliban leadership and attack coordinators in Wardak province, Kabul and Pakistaninfo-icon.

Based on multiple intelligence sources and tips from citizens, the force targeted a compound in the district while moving into position, the force observed a group of suspected insurgents fleeing the area. The security force secured and cleared the original compound, detaining several suspected insurgents, the alliance said in a statement. After questioning the residents, the force pursued individuals who had fled. 

The security force then moved to detain two additional insurgents hiding in a ditch. The security force called for them to exit the ditch peacefully. As the security force approached, the armed insurgents opened fire with AK-47s. The security force returned fire, resulting in the two insurgents being killed. 

A rocket propelled grenade with six warheads, one AK-47, one chest rack, one shotgun, a machine gun and ammunition were found during the operation, it said.
