Operation TORA GHAR, or ‘Courageous Mountain’, was conducted by soldiers from C Company (C Coy), 1st Battalion The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (1 PWRR), and the Afghan National Army (ANA), flown into the western Dashte area, west of Nad ‘Ali district, on two Chinook helicopters.

The operation enabled the UK and Afghan forces to demonstrate to remaining insurgents the ability of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and the ANA to strike at will.

    TORA GHAR operation has demostrated the ability of ISAF and Afghan force to govern and patrol the territory and to sgtrike at will. Not only, operation has produced influence on people, who now is free by insurgents mental and political domination.
    An operation that has established human contact and rapport with population, now free to decide.
    On a word a new stage toward Afghan people freedom.
    We thank component of operation an who has directed all actions.
