For 13 years, between 2001 and 2014, the UK was involved in the conflict in Afghanistan against the Taliban and fighters from al-Qaeda. UK forces are deployed to Afghanistan in support of the UN-authorised, NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission and as part of the US-led Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). Since 2003 UK operations in Afghanistan have been conducted under the name Operation HERRICK.
In 2014 UK troops ended combat operations and began to leave Afghanistan, closing down or handing over bases to Afghan forces. By the end of the year a small number of soldiers remained to continue the training and development of the Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police.
