New Afghan tactics
Insurgents and terrorists in Afghanistan are entering the country without weapons and are being armed for attacks once inside the country, a U.S. Army commander in Afghanistan said last week.
Brig. Gen. Rodney Anderson, deputy commanding general of the Combined Joint Task Force-82, told reporters by teleconference Oct. 31 that insurgents infiltrate Afghanistan without weapons and “then conduct their attacks or link up with their equipment once inside the country.”
Afghan border police have detected and detained some of these infiltrators, he said.
Suicide bombing attacks in Afghanistan have been carried out by a combination of foreign fighters as well as some Afghans, Gen. Anderson said.
