TF-50 took part in a dramatic rescue operation, in which 3 hostages were rescued and several Insurgents were eliminated.

Three days ago (January 10) during morning hours, Paktias province govenours residance was attacked by several armed men. They took three people hostage and barricaded the doors. Afghan National Police, Polish Forces and PRC troops responded to the emergency.
The ANP attempted to breach the bulding three times, but the were met with strong resistance by the purpotrators (machine gun fire and RPGs).
Since it was a complicated scenario, Polish SOF were called into action, along with PRC troops which they trained. A assault plan was made up, accepted by DWS and ISAF SOCOM.
TF-50 Soldiers and PRC Afghans attacked, commanding all flors of the bulding. During the assault, all three hostages were liberated and all assailents were killed. One hostage taker tried to hide among the hostages by dressing up as an Afghan Police Officer - he also had a suiside vest. Yet he never got a chance to use it.
The operation is another succes of our SOF Task Forces which in recent months step up their operational tempo.

A few more for a recent op in Afghanistan: two major players were caught, as well as a large exlosives cache was detonated.
Gulab Khan Aka Saifudin was the leader of a large insurgent cell operating in the Paktia province.
He and hi brother were taken by surprise by TF-50 and Afghan Commandos .












Good job guys.

They look very comfortable/at home in the snow and freezing temps. I wish I was as acclimated to the cold weather...
Great pics as always, Rav!
