In no way is this meant to "contest" the area with the (heavily armed) ISAF forces. The insurgent agenda is on reconnaissance of ISAF tactics and putting his troops in a position to take advantage of "targets of opportunity". That explains the succession of 'tactical' and 'over-watch' markers (see below):
The ISAF commander deploys a full team high up on the compound walls to provide a protective fire-base (with its potent arsenal of weaponry). The only thing they need are 'legitimate, clear unambiguous targets'! What they seen seems to be just a normal Lardistan street-scene (see below):
ISAF deploy a reconnaissance team (section) to keep a watch on their right flank (see below):

The result of all this ISAF consolidated deployment is that major the major building is designated as a friendly compound as it is looking securely occupied (see below):
But is anything ever really secure in Lardistan?
