NATO continues attack on Taliban compound

November 5, 2006


— NATO forces struck a suspected insurgent compound in rare violence near Kabul and battles continued Saturday in the area, NATO said.

NATO troops backed by warplanes launched the raid Friday north of Kabul, hitting a compound with eight to 10 suspected Taliban fighters inside, said Maj. Luke Knittig, a NATO spokesman. Most of the recent fighting in Afghanistan has been concentrated in the country's south and east, close to the border with Pakistan.

Knittig said he did not know how many insurgents were killed in ongoing fighting in the Tagab Valley, some 40 miles northeast of Kabul.
