ISAF responds to attacks from inside Pakistan

KABUL, Afghanistan — ISAF’s Task Force (TF) Currahee in Paktika province received multiple rocket attacks from militants inside Pakistan on 15 July.

The troops indentified a qalat as the point of origin of the attacks and responded in self defence with a combination of fires from attack helicopters and artillery into Pakistan.

TF Currahee and Pakistan military coordinated their operation closely from the outset. The Pakistani military agreed to assist and search the area if the border firing continued.
