Afghanistan - Military - US Marines Offensive in Marja

Lance Crpl. Welch yells to his team between firing bursts from his M-249 during an exchange in fire with suspected Taliban in Marja, Saturday. United States Marines and Afghan forces continued Operation Moshtarak, meaning "joint operation," to retake the city of Marja from Taliban forces. The operation is the largest of the war since the invasion, and Marja - long outside the Afghan government's control - is the Taliban's last major stronghold in Helmand Province. Assault Breaching Vehicles crossed the heavily mined outskirts of the city, using Mine Clearing Line Charges (MICLIC), 150-meter and 1,750-pound cables of C4 explosive, to clear a path of IED's and other obstacles. Marines of Charlie Company 1 Infantry, 6th Marine Regiment follow, clearing the city of Taliban.
