NATO Forces Resume Joint Operations in Afghanistan

How long will it last?


NATO-led forces have resumed almost all operations alongside their Afghan counterparts, the NATO chief said on Monday, after commanders cut back joint missions because of a surge in insider attacks on foreign troops.

NATO announced curbs on joint operations on September 18 in response to the rise in "rogue" attacks and anger across the Muslim world over a film mocking the Prophet Mohammad.

Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said commanders in the field had now restarted most joint operations.
