Our guys had a parachute and an anchor on their patch, and a tab that read 'Rozpoznanie' or 'Rozpoznaje', something like that.

A few days ago, NATO SOF commander gen. Frank Kisner payed a visit to Polish SOF stationed in Kracow, Warshaw and Lubliniec. The general met with Polish Special Forces who recently captured a HVT from the Joint Priority Effects List.

Another successful operation, credited by ISAF commander himself.

TF-50 (made up of 1st. SOF Regiment Soldiers) has been credited for capturing one of th etop wanted terror cell organisers in Ghazni province. Along with that, Polish commandos destroyed an IED cell operating in the province. ISAF commander Gen. Petraeus gave thanks to the Commandos, stating that 'their OP-Tempo effectively unables their fighting and operating capability.
The HVT is the second to be captured by the Regiment (the first one was cought 6 months ago by the previous PSK TF).

TF-50 is responsible for a significant drop in enemy activity in Ghazni province.

A couple of your operations over the past couple of weeks were complimented directly by COM ISAF, Gen Petraeus.

Yesterday morning when we reported your vehicle check point of 2 days ago (10 Jan) that resulted in detention of a jackpot and weapons recovery, he asked me to pass on to you he thought that was a great Op for your PRC.

Second, I reported your partnered operation from last week where you recovered several prepared IEDs as weil as other IED components in my weekly personal report to COMISAF. He again replied back to that report that it was an excellent operation and undoubtedly saved lives by preventing those IEDs from being emplaced.

POLSOCOM has much to be pleased about the progress of your's job since your arrival last April. We have seen steady progress in your military assistance mission with the Police in Gazni.
You unfortunately have had to take a step backward with the switch of PRC forces in November. It appears you are taking the right approach in training and preparing the new force for special police operations. The PRC program across the country is a top COMISAF priority, go he'll be paying close attention to the progress of PRC Gazni. The goal of them being FMC by end of March will now be hard to meet but by increasing your training and partnering ratios you can meet that goal.

Thanks again. Please pass this on to your Polish Chain of Command.

High intensity of operations conducted by Polish Special Forces Combat Teams supported by the soldiers of the Polish Task Force, brings positive effects for the whole ISAF operation.
In a recent special operation deployed troops of Special Forces of Lubliniec, so-called TF-50, and soldiers from the Polish Task Force intercepted and destroyed a few hundred kilograms of explosives and several improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Having reviewed the results of the operation the ISAF commander in Afghanistan Gen. David Petraeus sent personal thanks to the Commander of TF-50.
The American commander assessed the operation as: "excellent, which undoubtedly saved the lives of many people".
Special words of recognition General Petraeus directed to the group TF-50 for operations carried out jointly with the Afghan Police.
During one of these operations, several persons suspected of conducting attacks against coalition forces were detained. One of the arrested militants was on the list of primary objectives of the ISAF operation. He was responsible for plotting terrorist activities in Ghazni province, including the preparation and management of attacks on Coalition forces.
As a result of the operation large amounts of cash designed for financing terrorist activities and weaponry were taken over.
This is the second important Taliban leader detained by soldiers from Lubliniec. In September 2010 in the Andar district, they captured a Taliban "ace", for which the words of recognition directed to them NATO Special Forces Commander Gen. Frank Kisner.
According to General Petraeus - commander in Afghanistan "an unprecedented rate of special operations conducted by Coalition forces in Afghanistan began the process of the collapse of Taliban morale and cohesion of their operations”.
Operational activity of the Polish Task Force and the task groups of the Special Forcesin the ISAF operation has led to a noticeable decrease in the number of attacks on Coalition forces and thus on the improvement of security in the province of Ghazni.

The beginning of the year 2011 was marked by very intensive operational activity of Polish Task Force in Afghanistan.
In spite of winter and apparently lower activity of insurgents, Polish soldiers maintain very high level of intensity of operations.
In the night 5-6 January soldiers from 1 Special Regiment from Lubliniec together with Afghan partners carried out dynamic operation in Giro district, where one more factory of IED was liquidated. Six ready to use weighing dozens of kilograms IEDs as well as weighing 30 and 30 kilos containers with chemicals for producing IEDs were found. Moreover electronic devices and satellite phones were captured. Altogether the weigh of found materials was over 340 kilos. Besides, two men were arrested.
Several hours earlier, on 5 January in the morning soldiers from Bravo Combat Group participated in a fire exchange with the enemy. Thanks to the information from unmanned aircraft it was possible to localize the attacking insurgents immediately. Helicopters were called, they attacked the insurgents. As a result one of them was killed, the others escaped. Grenades, grenade launchers and machine guns were captured.
On the same day in other part of Ghazni province Combat Group Alfa carried out another "cordon and search" operation. The effect was finding grenades and ingredients for IEDs. A day before, on 4 January, operation "Husars's Touch I" was carried out. It was common Polish-Afghan operation.
Almost every day Polish soldiers find and liquidate ammunition dumps weakening in this way the anti-governmental forces' capabilities of attacking coalition forces and Afghan civilians. The operations are a continuation of intensive tempo of operational activity in 2010.
