BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan, Dec. 3, 2007 Several militants were killed during a coalition operation yesterday targeting Taliban command-and-control networks in Afghanistans Helmand province.
Coalition forces conducted a precision-guided munitions strike targeting a senior Taliban commander believed to be involved in the March kidnapping of Italian journalist Daniele Mastrogiacomo, his interpreter and his driver. Reports indicate the individual also is responsible for a number of mortar attacks on coalition bases, as well as several improvised-explosive-device attacks.
During the course of operations, coalition forces targeted a vehicle in the Musa Qaleh district containing five men, one of whom intelligence reports indicated to be a senior Taliban commander. A supporting aircraft released a precision-guided munition, destroying the vehicle and killing the occupants.
There were no immediate indications of injuries or deaths to civilians not taking part in hostilities.
Coalition forces are systematically destroying the Talibans command and control over their extremist networks, said Army Maj. Chris Belcher, a Combined Joint Task Force 82 spokesman.

Hopefully popping these losers will put a damper on their operation.
Step 2. Tell the civilians in the "lawless: regions to evacuate.
Step 3. Use said neutron bombs to cleanse said regions.
Or as we say in American,”Hey Mr. Taliman, here’s your Christmas present, early”.
confirmed reports last night of a British and Afghan battlegroup heading into Musa Qala in an effort to try and retake the town from AQ and the Taliban.
