The site was secured, supposed-to-be enemies of peace were arrested and wounded are cared for during the military exercise.Since the launch of the fifth and final tranche of the security transition in June 2013, the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) are in the lead for security across the country. ISAF no longer plans, executes or leads combat operations, but continues to support the ANSF.

Created in 2002, the Afghan National Army (ANA) has grown to around 200,000 personnel, including nearly 11,000 Special Forces. It has developed both fighting elements and enabling capabilities, such as military police, intelligence, route clearance, combat support, medical, aviation and logistics.

The site was secured, supposed-to-be enemies of peace were arrested and wounded are cared for during the military exercise.

As part of continuing education and to keep abreast with the changing battlefield scenarios, the ANA officers regularly take part in military exercises. A military exercise is the employment of military resources in training for military operations, either exploring the effects of warfare or testing strategies without actual combat.

The ANA officers at the Kabul Military Training Centre recently took part in one such exercise in which different units of the army participated, including female soldiers. The exercise consisted of clearing a building of insurgents, capturing the enemy and medevacking the wounded.

Since the ANSF have increasingly become professional, they will be fully responsible for security in Afghanistan by the end of 2014, and ISAF mission will end. However, NATO will continue to play its role as part of the broader international community effort to support the long-term sustainment of the Afghan security forces.Since the launch of the fifth and final tranche of the security transition in June 2013, the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) are in the lead for security across the country.
