Welsh soldiers take on the Taliban

Operation Chakush
Details of a British army operation in Afghanistan. The video below is from the Army news page.

The Helmand region (highlighted above in red in a graphic from wikipedia) has seen plenty of heavy fighting, and this operation seems to be another attempt to wrestle control from the Taliban.

In the video, it can be seen that some of the troops are wearing T-shirts instead of their normal uniform tops (but of course still wearing their body armour), which shows how hot conditions are over there.
