KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): In a statement Tuesday, International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) commander General John Allen expressed his condolences for the family and friends of those killed when an ISAF Chinook crashed in Maidan Wardak early Saturday.

Thirty ISAF service members, one civilian interpreter, and seven Afghan commandos were killed in the crash.

The Talibaninfo-icon claimed to have downed the helicopter with a rocket while it was taking part in a raid on a house where insurgents were gathering in the Tangi Valley of Wardak’s Syedabad district.

"Today, as we pay our respects to these magnificent troops, we re-commit ourselves for the future, and for the freedom, peace and stability of Afghanistaninfo-icon,” Allen said, according to the statement. “We will continue to relentlessly pressure the enemy and we will continue to develop the Afghan National Security Forces so that on their strong, broad shoulders they can defeat this insurgency and bring lasting and enduring peace to this historic land and this great people… We will prevail."
