ISAF successfully strikes extremist leaders

KABUL, Afghanistan – A meeting of Taliban leadership was successfully eliminated by an ISAF air strike in southern Afghanistan today.

“This was another victory for the people of Afghanistan in the fight against extremist insurgents,” said Maj. John Thomas, ISAF spokesman.

There were no signs of any civilians in the area before or after the strike, Thomas said.

“Every one of these successful strikes causes disruption and disarray among the insurgents as we continue the pressure against the very leaders who plan and cause attacks against Afghan civilians and Afghan forces,” he said.
