outskirts of Musa Qala

KABUL, Afghanistan – ANA forces and ISAF soldiers have entered the outskirts of the main part of Musa Qala today.

Currently, Afghan and ISAF forces are consolidating their positions. Further activities will be dictated by the security situation on the ground but progress will be deliberate, appropriate and measured.

The two principles guiding us are the safety of the local civilian population and the security of our own troops in respect to Improvised Explosive Devices and mines. Further information on our progress will be released as it develops.
