A combined Afghan and coalition security force called in an airstrike that killed two insurgents in the Manduzai district of Afghanistan’s Khost province today, military officials reported.

The force was searching for a Haqqani network leader who operates an insurgent cell in the Nadir Shah Kot district and plans roadside-bomb attacks.

The security force observed some insurgents burying a 100-pound bomb near a road and called for the precision airstrike that killed the two insurgents. Three others were detained.

The security force also confiscated a rocket-propelled grenade, multiple firearms and bomb-making materials.
