Definition: Enemy-initiated attacks comprise all enemy action (enemy-initiated direct fire, indirect fire, surface-to-air fire) and explosive hazard events, to include executed attacks only (improvised explosive device (IED) explosions / mine strikes). Data Source: Afghan Mission Network (AMN) Combined Information Data Network Exchange (CIDNE) Database, as of 29 Sep 2011.

ISAF Observations • ANSF / ISAF and SOF operations continue to show marked gains in main effort areas. • Nationwide, enemy-initiated attacks reported January through August 2011 are down 3 percent compared to 2010. • ISAF had expected a 17 – 30 percent increase in enemyinitiated attacks for 2011 based, in part, on the increase in Combined Team force strength which included 10,000 to 25,000 more ISAF troops and 60,000 more ANSF troop/police in Afghanistan in 2011 compared to 2010.

The changes over three month periods are depicted at the top of the chart. Data Source: Afghan Mission Network (AMN) Combined Information Data Network Exchange (CIDNE) Database, as of 29 Sep 2011.

ISAF Observations • Enemy-initiated attacks for the period June – August 2011 are 17 percent lower than the same period in 2010. • In 17 of the past 22 weeks through the week of 23 September, enemy-initiated attacks are lower than the same week in 2010. • Since May of this year, enemy-initiated attacks are lower than the same month in 2010. We have not seen a decrease in year-over-year enemy-initiated attacks since at least 2007.

same scale to allow a direct, intuitive comparison of the different magnitudes of monthly enemy-initiated attacks by Regional Command (RC). • Marked success in RC Southwest: Attacks during the period June – August 2011 are 40 percent lower than last year; some districts in the Central Helmand River Valley have seen reductions in violence of nearly 80 percent, particularly Marjeh, Nad’Ali, and Garm Ser. This improvement in the security situation is attributable to successful comprehensive CIVILMILITARY counterinsurgency operations. • Emerging success in RC South: Enemy-initiated attacks reported during the period June – August 2011 were 10 percent lower than the same period last year. • Continued challenges in RC East: Attacks continue to increase in RC East; 17 percent higher for the period June – August 2011 compared to the same time period in 2010.

ISAF Observations
• Insurgents continue to rely on IEDs to compensate for their degraded capacity. IED activity from June to August is 25 percent greater in 2011 than in 2010, while insurgent-initiated direct fire attacks decreased by 30 percent for the same period of time. • Over 70 percent of insurgentcaused CIVCAS result from IED strikes. • Year-to-date IED explosions have increased 5 percent compared to 2010. • The rate of IEDs that are found and cleared without detonation is 55 percent of total planted IEDs, an improvement over last year’s rate of 45 percent. This improvement in finding / clearing IEDs is attributable to increased local national assistance (tips), improved counter-IED tactics, and increases in ANSF-led operations.
