ISAF relocates combat outpost in Kandahar

KABUL, Afghanistan - ISAF has relocated a combat outpost in Kandahar province as a part of routine force repositioning.

ISAF forces have informed the local population.

In the past, insurgent forces have attempted to exploit routine relocations of ISAF forces to stage the appearance of having “over-run” the outpost for propaganda purposes.

ISAF and Afghan National Security Forces will continue to perform regular patrols throughout Kandahar.
