Afghanistan - Operation Enduring Freedom
Coalition Airpower conducted 75 close-air-support missions
  • A F/A-18E (VFA 143) flew a show of force over Moqor (Google Maps) to help Afghan National Army troops locate and identify anti-Afghan forces in the area. Anti-Afghan personnel had indiscriminately opened fire on the village the ANA had been patrolling, with enemy shooters taking long distance, poorly-aimed shots with small arms and rocket propelled grenades from the hills bordering the town. The F/A-18E's show of force, emphasized by an expenditure of flares, caused enemy fire to cease as they fled the area.
  • In Gereshk (Google Maps), an F/A-18F (VFA 103) conducted shows of force to aid a unit that had been attacked by anti-Afghan forces with indirect fire and automatic weapons. The aircraft also performed tactical reconnaissance for ground forces operating in the area.
Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR)
  • 22 USAF ISR aircraft flew missions as part of operations in Afghanistan. In addition, 3 U.S. Navy and coalition aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

JMSDF continues an antipiracy operation
Joint Staff: 派遣海賊対処水上部隊の出港について (Jun. 30, '09 release) pdf_icon.gif
  • Tokyo, Japan (Jun. 30, 2009) - Joint Staff reports that JS Harusame (DD 102), JS Amagiri (DD 154) and other units will depart to the Gulf of Aden Jul. 6 as a relief unit of the antipiracy operation.

    Currently, JS Samidare (DD 106), JS Sazanami (DD 113) and other units have operated in the Gulf of Aden as the 1st antipiracy maritime force since arrival at the scene Mar. 30.

    JMSDF can't escort and protect foreign vessels except emergencies outside Japan territory due to limitation of existing law, however Jun. 19, the Diet enacted the antipiracy law authorizing JMSDF to escort and protect any nations vessels outside Japan territory. In addition, a severe ROE on weapon usages is eased.

    Thus, the 2nd antipiracy maritime force will be operating under the law.
