Haqqani Network in Astan

Launched a complex assault on a combat outpost. Fortunately it was foiled but the U.S. lost two soldiers. This was a well planned assault with prep fires then the use of a VBIED to breach the gate with a follow on assault team in place. The breaching vehicle was stopped and it looks like the assault team was killed.

There is also an update on the missing US soldier in the article.
