In the last month, troops have killed more than 25 leaders and militants of Al Qaeda, and the death of 'Abdul Ghani' is a significant milestone to disrupt the network," added ISAF in your letter. 'Abdul Ghani' directed the operations of recruitment and training of militants, the supply of weapons and planning attacks against Afghan and international troops in Kunar, one of the points that is more intense the Afghan conflict.
