Washington:The Pakistani army's operation in North Waziristan this year has disrupted the Haqqani network but the terrorist group continues to effect Afghanistan, a top American commander has said.

"They are fractured. They are fractured like the Taliban is. That's based pretty much on the Pakistan ops and North Waziristan this entire summer-fall. That has very much disrupted their efforts here and has caused them to be less effective in terms of their ability to pull off an attack here in Kabul," Lieutenant General Joseph Anderson, Joint Commander of International Security Assistance Force said.

"The Haqqani Network is one of the many threat streams that continue to affect us here in Afghanistan. Haqqani Network is focused more on the high profile attack like the large vehicle borne explosives, those types of attacks," he said.
