A militant commander was one of several insurgents killed in a two-day
offensive last week in eastern Afghanistan, NATO's International Security
Assistance Force said on Monday.

Fazil Subhan, a Haqqani network commander, was killed in Khost province. The network has links to al Qaeda and the Taliban.

The network claimed responsibility with Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan
militants for a December suicide attack against intelligence officers in Khost.

    WE? If you haven't been or never will be in that environment, it's not we, it's them. Don't take credit for something people far more brave than you are accomplishing.

    God will now repay them for all their ungodly actions here on earth. May we and the coalition forces bring justice to all Taliban and terrorists fighting in Afghanistan and Pakistan!
