UK and Afghan soldiers move into compounds in the Sayedebad area of Nad-e Ali as part of Op TOR SHEZADA

Somme Company of 1st Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment (1LANCS) successfully performed an aerial insertion from a Chinook helicopter in the early hours of 30th July 2010 under a cover of darkness.

They are now within Sayedebad, as part of Operation Tor Shezada which is pushing insurgent fighters further from the population centres. This increased security will enable the Afghan Government to extend its reach to the local population.
