KAPISA PROVINCE, Afghanistan — Afghan and coalition forces conducted clearing operations in the Afghanya and Ghayn valleys in northern Kapisa, Nov. 16.


Afghan troops from 33rd Kandak, 201st Afghan National Army Corps, along with French soldiers with Battle Group Tiger, took part in Operation Gyrfalcon to reduce the insurgents’ influence in those valleys.


As ANA forces cleared through the valleys, French detachments provided over watch and artillery support from the mountains above. Local Afghan police assisted the combined force with intelligence updates from the area.


During this operation, ANA soldiers also distributed medical material, sanitary kits and medicine in the Ghain Bala village. Villagers also received clothes in preparation of winter.
