Soldiers from D Company, 5th Battalion The Rifles (5 RIFLES), supported the Afghan Uniform Police in the village of Khasar in the protected community of Walizai in the Babaji area of the Nahr-e Saraj (South) district of Helmand province.

In the three-day partnered Operation KAPCHA DELAWAR 4, or ‘Brave Cobra’, more than 60 Riflemen guarded the area while IEDs were cleared out so that the Afghan police were able to build the defences around their new checkpoint.

    A Brithish/Afghan corp cooperation on building a checkpoint to protect people, after IED has been cleared is an ulterior step toward a cooperation beetween orient and occident, afghan and ISAF, a stage where dialogue is not only a hope but a concretation.
    The result of Afghanistan war is producing result and good results, we may say, the terror’s war is ending and its end is done by the interactions we are seing.
    Good, very good.
    Thanks warriors: your sacrifices are trasforming a country and human and civil rapports.
