The SOTG operates in support of ISAF security operations and enhances provincial security by working to disrupt Taliban extremists’ command and control and routes of supply in remote areas.

These disruption activities directly support the Reconstruction Task Force’s (RTF) reconstruction efforts, support the development of Afghan National Security Forces and reinforce the legitimacy of the Afghan Government.

The SOTG’s unique skills are utilised in remote regions of the province, thereby directly influencing the security situation in more populated areas.
