US/UK Joint Combat Patrol IED Strike in Nowzad

Published Dec. 30, 2021

A join patrol of U.S. Marines and Soldiers from the UK in Nowzad has an unexpected run in with an improvised explosive device. Fortunately, no one was injured in the IED strike.


This video was recorded before 2008 or early 2009. I'm not entirely sure which Marines are in this video, but it's either 2/7 or 3/8 as those were the only two Marine units to occupy Nowzad before my unit arrived in 2009. I'm entirely unsure of which British troops these are as well, but it's clear that this is a joint patrol based off of the helmet profile of the Soldier leading the pack of Marines who are probably conducting some sort of relief in place patrol.


Nowzad was, and probably still is to this day, one of the most dangerous areas in Afghanistan. For years the Taliban and ISAF forces fought each other in the small town, which essentially turned the area into a massive minefield of improvised explosive devices. It wasn't until December of 2009 when 1,000 American troops pushed into Nowzad with a large quantity of 70-ton assault breacher vehicles that American forces were able to gain a foothold in the area. Even still, as late as 2016 Nowzad was reported as under Taliban control.
