Operation Hanging Garden
24-25 February 2018
Location: Maravar Pass, Asadabad, Kunar Province, Eastern Afghanistan
Following Operation Final Creed in January, Coalition forces have increased their presence in the Kunar province in an attempt to stem the flow of fighters crossing the Pakistan border to join the fighting in Afghanistan.
US 503rd and British Pathfinders remain in control of the Patrol Base at Camp Warhorse but their situation is rapidly becoming untenable. The sheer number of hostile fighters means operations are constantly hampered by escalating violence throughout the province, with major resources being diverted to quash the fighting within the city of Asadabad.
UKSF have deployed into the region working alongside a detachment of US Navy SEALs to target the Taliban command and control.
Bravo One is Maulana Fazlullah, leader of the Pakistani Taliban. Fazlullah is known to be operating in Kunar Province where he is coordinating the movement of Afghan Taliban and the arrival of more fighters from the Pakistan side of the Hindu Kush Mountains.
Intel suggests that Fazullah is working alongside Jalaluddin Haqqani whom local assets claim to be one of the senior field commanders in Afghanistan. It is thought these two are in direct command of the Taliban currently fighting in Asadabad, remaining hidden in the mountains of the Maravar Pass from where they coordinate their operations.
