    New NATO Offensive In Afghanistan

    Nato'New NATO Offensive In Afghanistan', Radio Netherlands, 18 February 2008

    EXCERPT: "More than a thousand Afghan, US and Dutch soldiers are taking part in a new offensive against the Taliban in the Afghan province of Uruzgan. The operation is taking place in an area around the town of Deh Rawod in the west of the province that has fallen into Taliban hands in recent months. Since then thousands of Afghans have fled the region. It's the NATO stabilisation force ISAF's second large operation in Uruzgan, which together with neighbouring provinces Helmand and Kandahar are the home of the Taliban movement. Last autumn, Taliban militias were driven out of a strategic valley north of the provincial capital Tarin Kowt during an operation called 'Spin Ghar' (White Mountain). The latest offensive is called 'Patan Ghar' (Mountain of the Pasthuns) and focuses on the area around the town of Deh Rawod on the Helmand river."
