On the morning of January the 24th, 2018, a group of gunmen stormed the Save the Children offices in Jalalabad. An international NGO residing in close proximity requested support in evacuating two employees hunkered down in their residence.
Within minutes of the Islamic State terror attack, the NSSG’s Global Security Operations Centre (GSOC) received the assistance request from a client requiring the evacuation from Jalalabad to Kabul. Our team provided a preliminary intelligence assessment of the developing event and a tactical evacuation plan. Within few hours, NSSG had a team from Kabul mobilized to extract the employees in Jalalabad moving them to a safe house prior to final extraction via commercial airlines.
