Special report on Afghanistan

According to a special report on Afghanistan prepared by KGS NightWatch, the number of clashes in October remained elevated at 701. The highlight of the month was the relative calm in Kabul and Parwan Provinces in central Afghanistan. That contrasted sharply with a surge of attacks in Kandahar, the setting for the latest Coalition offensive. 16 of the 34 provinces account for up to 90 percent of the fighting. The Pashtun heartland showed the sharpest deterioration. At current force levels backed by air power, the security situation in Afghanistan should be containable. For the full report, visit KGS NightWatch.com.
