KABUL, Afghanistan — ISAF’s Task Force Currahee destroyed two bunkers of munitions in Zirok district of Paktika province on 15 July.

Soldiers from TF Currahee received information regarding the location of enemy munitions in two separate bunkers near a combat outpost.

The soldiers called in an air strike to dispose of the enemy munitions. Pilots dropped several bombs on the first bunker resulting in a large secondary explosion confirming that the bunker had munitions in it. They then dropped another bomb on the second bunker.

Immediately following the air strike, ISAF forces positively identified insurgents in the open near the bunkers and dropped two bombs on their position.
