KABUL, Afghanistan (Jan. 25, 2011) — Afghan and coalition forces killed Abdul Wahab, a Taliban attack facilitator, along with another armed insurgent and detained several suspected insurgents during a security operation yesterday in Nimroz province.

Abdul Wahab was responsible for the movement of munitions and improvised explosive device materials within northern Nimroz for attacks against coalition forces. He also facilitated the movement of materials to Taliban associates within Kandahar.

Intelligence reports led the security force to the targeted compound in Khash Rod district. As the security force arrived, armed insurgents were observed leaving the compound. The security force conducted a search and secured the compound.

After securing the compound, the security force attempted to interdict the evading armed insurgents. As the security force approached the armed insurgents they were threatened. The security force returned fire, resulting in Abdul Wahab and one armed insurgent being killed.

Several suspected insurgents were detained after initial questioning at the scene. The security force recovered multiple AK-47s, chest racks, ammunition and 400 pounds (181 kilograms) of IED-making material.
