Paras Break Through into Taliban’s Green Zone Heartland

Discussion in 'Afghanistan' started by UKForcesAfghanistan, Dec 12, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. British paratroopers and their Afghan National Army colleagues have made a significant advance deep into the Taliban’s Helmand heartland, driving out insurgents and establishing government control.

    The operation, into the settlement of Tor Ghai in Nahr-e Saraj district, was led by 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment (2 PARA), with support from troops from 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment (3 PARA), and The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (5 SCOTS).

    Since last year’s Operation PANCHAI PALANG (Panther’s Claw), British forces have built a series of patrol bases along Route Trident, a key route linking the cities of Lashkar Gah and Gereshk – but this is the first time that British and Afghan forces have driven this deep into Nahr-e Saraj’s ‘Green Zone’ to establish an enduring presence.
