HELMAND: Afghan commandos have arrested a German fighter in a night raid in southern Helmand province this week, Afghan media reports claim.
TOLONews quoted a spokesman of the commandos saying that the operation was launched in Gereshk district of Helmand.
Jawad Salim said the commandos also had air support of foreign troops to target an insurgent safe haven.
“Five insurgents were killed during the operation and three others including a German national were arrested,” he said, adding that “the forces have also discovered some weapons and explosives.”
However, he did not provide further details about the operation.
