The operation was launched against a camp in the Sar Rawza district of Paktika Province in the south-east of the country. The camp was being used by the Haqqani network, a Taliban-linked group, and was one of the main staging areas for foreign fighters arriving in Afghanistan from Chechnya, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Arab countries. Up to 50 rebels were reportedly killed in the attack, one of the biggest such raid by the Afghan commandos.
These Afghan special forces teams are now reguarly deployed alongside UK and US special forces units on joint missions.
