Military activity in Afghanistan: (29th May - 7th July 2007).

This post presents the military events in Afghanistan in the period 29th May to 7th July, and places them in the map.

The US Central Command Air Forces (CENTAF), reports the following air activity:

The geographic distribution shows a concentration of activity in the South West (Helmand, Kandahar, Farah Provinces), but also activities in the East and North. The places were occurred more air strikes are Garmsir, Sangin, Tarin Kowt, and Kandahar. Clashes have been concentrated on north Helmand, north Kandahar and south Oruzgan.

It is important to note that there is still fighting at Kajaki Dam. This is a strategic point, and the ISAF forces couldn't completely control since some months ago. Although the Operation Kryptonite (February 2007) cleared the area from Talibans, they have been carrying out a permanent guerrilla which destabilizes the area.

Other new fact is the clash at Kalāt-i-Nazar Khān, a remote Afghan-Iranian border post (the 17th June). In the fighting were killed 8 Taliban and 2 policemen.

Suicide bombers attacked the 16th June in Kabul and Mazar-i-Sharif. Both attacks were centered in military-civilian convoys.

The involved planes were: B-1B Lancer, F-15E Strike Eagle, A-10 Thunderbolt II, Royal Air Force GR-9 Harrier, and MIRAGE 2000. The bombs were: GBU-31 and GBU-38.
