President Ghani was personally involved in planning the operation, which is codenamed Zolfiqar - meaning double-edged sword - and which began on Feb. 10, according to Maj. Gen. Kurt Fuller, deputy chief of staff for U.S. and NATO operations in Afghanistan. Ghani heads to Washington later this month, where he is expected to seek enhanced U.S. military backup, particularly air support. LINK
