Operation SHAFUQ (which means 'dawn' in Pashtu) is a large-scale Afghan National Army (ANA) operation to clear the Bowri Dashte area of Nad 'Ali. The operation was conceived, planned and executed by the ANA, with on-the-ground advice provided by British soldiers. More than 600 warriors from the ANA and 170 International Security Assistance Force advisors, including British soldiers from the Brigade Advisory Group, have been involved in the operation. The ISAF advisors include soldiers from 3rd Battalion The Rifles and 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment. The mission began with the clearance of an area known as the 'Shark's Fin'. Afghan Explosive Hazard Reduction Teams took the lead in defeating improvised explosive devices found with guidance and mentoring from UK specialists.
