Afghanistan - War - US Military Offensive in Kunar Province
Afghanistan National Army, ANA, soldiers prepare to go out on patrol in the Korengal Valley, which has also been nicknamed "death valley", in Loy Kalay, Korengal Valley, Kunar province, Afghanistan on Dec. 29, 2009. Its unyielding terrain and border with the semi-autonomous Pakistani North-West Frontier Province provides significant advantages for unconventional warfare and militant groups. The province is informally known as "Enemy Central" by American and Western armed forces serving in Afghanistan. In 2009, approximately 60 percent of all insurgent incidents in the country occurred in the province of Kunar. | Location: Loy Kolay, Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
