Two more Afghan Taliban weapons facilitators were captured during an operation in country's eastern province of Nangarhar, the NATO-led forces said on Monday.
"A combined Afghan and coalition security force captured two Taliban facilitators during an operation in Khugyani district, Nangarhar province, today," said the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in a press release, Xinhua reported.
The facilitators distributed weapons and supplies to insurgent fighters and coordinated attacks throughout Khugyani district, it said, adding that the security force confiscated multiple weapons during the operation.
The ISAF on Sunday confirmed capturing a Taliban senior weapons facilitator in the province with Jalalabad as its capital, 120 km east of capital city of Kabul.
The ISAF press release issued here on Sunday said that the senior captured Taliban facilitator, namely Mashahud, was detained on Jan. 1 and that he has been linked to a command wire bomb attack on Dec. 21, 2011, which left five ISAF service members dead in eastern province of Ghazni.
Currently over 130,000 ISAF troops, with majority of them Americans, have been serving in Afghanistan.
Taliban has yet to make comments.
Afghan forces and ISAF troops have intensified cleanup operations throughout the post-Taliban country recently as over 300 insurgents have been killed and over 570 detained since beginning December 2011.
