Afghan Army Captures IED Maker, Prevents Attack on School, Voting Center


The Afghan National Army’s 4th Brigade, 203rd Corps captured five improvised explosive device (IED) makers and a cache of bomb-making, in Logar Province, June 13.

The successful operation began when the 4th Brigade’s intelligence section used its own Persistent Threat Detection System (PTDS) to spot five insurgents emplacing three IEDs stopping a targeted attack at a school used as a voter registration center.

“We have the tools and motivation to fight the Taliban and force them to make peace. Thanks to our American partners we can use our own tools like the PTDS to find and arrest the enemy outside our gates,” said Afghan National Army Brig. Gen. Abdul Raziq, 4th Brigade, 203rd Corps commander. “I’m very proud of my soldiers and how quickly they learn to use their new tools to defend Afghanistan.”
