The first operation was carried out without any support from the International Security Assistance Force. It involved the search of a compound in Sangin which uncovered 13 rifles, four rocket-propelled grenade launchers (RPGs), an 82mm mortar and a large quantity of ammunition including RPG, mortar and artillery rounds, anti-personnel mines and small arms ammunition.

The second operation, just 48 hours later in the Pupalzay region of Lashkar Gah district, uncovered over 90kg of opium. This operation was supported by the PRC Embedded Mentoring Team and soldiers from the Queen’s Royal Hussars, who provided security in the area to allow the operation to proceed.
