Heavy Fighting Ongoing in Nooristan

May 28, 2010

NOORISTAN, May 28 - As the major countrywide operation al-Fath is successfully in progress, the US-NATO and their local minion army continue to take deadliest losses and severest damages across the country.

There have been fighting between the enemy and Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate near the district center of Bargamtal and surrounding areas over the past four days, in which the military posts of the enemy have been overrun and the government buildings have been badly damaged with 9 soldiers killed.

The enemy's security belt has been broken through and the fighting has reached a decisive point, where the Mujahideen have approached the center and captured four military posts blocking off all the routes to the district center.
