11. SOUNDBITE (Dari) Moammad Yaoub, Afghan Commander of artillery tank regiment:
"They (tanks) came from Kabul to Gardez. We are under the command of the defence ministry in Kabul. But we heard that al-Qaida fighters were still in the Gardez area. We have come to clean out al-Qaida from that area. Then when we arrive in Gardez we will wait for the command. When they want us to move - then we will move from this position."

Afghan National Army tanks were transported across the mountains from Kabul to Gardez on Saturday.
A total of 1600 Afghan troops had already arrived in the Gardez area on Friday, but poor weather in the mountainous region left the tank transporters stranded until the roads were clear.
The commander of the tank and artillery regiment said that that he had been waiting for the tanks to be transported across the mountains so that his regiment could launch a new offensive against al-Qaida fighters still entrenched in the area.
The cold, snowy weather had also led to a lull in the fighting.
These soldiers were waiting for their next orders from Kabul as to when they are to move from their current position outside of Gardez.
The front line of fighting is occurring approximately 20 miles (30 km) south of Gardez.
