Attacks[edit | edit source]
Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi phoned the media the following day, explaining the new operation's goals. That day, another attack left six police officers dead, from a mixture of explosives and gunfire. A suicide bomber also detonated himself 50 metres from the office of Governor Asadullah Khalid, wounding three security forces and a civilian passerby.
The Chenar village in the Shah Wali Kot District was the site of a four-hour gunbattle that pitched militants against Coalition forces as well as members of the ANA's 2nd Kandak, 1st Brigade, 209th Corps on June 4. When air support arrived and bombed three militant positions, it was estimated that 24 fighters were killed.
On June 5, Afghan National Army forces were ambushed by militants, who killed two of the soldiers and wounded three others, before air support killed 20-40 of the attacking militants. That evening, a pair of improvised explosive devices were detonated, failing to harm a National Directorate of Security intelligence vehicle and an Iranian consular vehicle.
