Large Weapons cache discovered in Kabul City

KABUL, Afghanistan – A large weapons' cache was found last night during a coordinated operation between ISAF troops and Afghan National Security forces (ANSF).

The cache, discovered in the western region of Kabul City, contained a variety of armaments to include rockets, mines and mortar shells. 

“These weapons could have potentially been used to harm local Afghan citizens or ANSF and ISAF troops,” said ISAF spokeswoman Lt. Col. Maria Carl. “This operation demonstrates effective cooperation between ISAF and ANSF troops as they work together to eradicate violence and develop a secure environment where Afghans can live and prosper.”
