The local anti insurgency operations are going as planned and the EOD unit still has to clear the last IEDs on the highway for the MSR to reopen again. The EOD unit reported a lot of activity in the area to the south south west of their position and ISR can confirm that it looks like the insurgents have a cell in that area.
The EOD unit has only cleared roads from IEDs marked in green, orange is unsafe at this moment and highly advised to stay off those roads.
