(Newsroom America) -- An Afghan and coalition security force has killed the leader of a Taliban improvised explosive device cell in Alisheng district, Laghman province.
ISAF said the Taliban leader, Rohullah Kahoon, is believed to be responsible for multiple attacks against Afghan and coalition forces using IEDs, rocket-propelled grenades and indirect fire munitions, such as rockets and mortars.
In the weeks prior to his death, the Taliban IED cell leader had reportedly been stockpiling weapons for future insurgent attacks, including ammunition and explosives.
After positively identifying Rohullah Kahoon and a group of armed insurgents away from civilian structures, the security force engaged with a precision airstrike, killing him and three additional insurgents.
ISAF said a post-strike assessment determined no civilians were harmed and no civilian property was damaged during the operation.
