Afghan forces to conduct night raids: Gen. Allen
International Assistance Security Assistance Force (ISAF) commander Gen. John Allen, who replaced Gen. David Petraeus two days back, held out the assurance at a meeting with President Hamid Karzai.
Allen said he would carry out his assignment in consultation with the Afghan government and people. Afghan forces would be fully equipped to shoulder responsibility for national security, he added.
While stressing coordination between Afghan security forces and their international partners, Karzai said: "I'll speak with the new US ambassador … on this and certain other issues."
