A Coy has secured the Y5H postcode area of Kunduz Province and has successfully secured staging grounds for an immediate offensive operation into the enemy held town of Tappeh Ka.

A Coy will now prepare to advance East/North East towards the town of Tappeh Ka in order to clear it of remaining Takiban forces.
