Saydabad District is a district of Wardak Province, Afghanistan. The district is known for its pleasant climate, including hilly vegetation, streams, and orchards.[1] The district was a popular retreat for Kabul residents until an increase in ISAF-Taliban violence in the late 2000s.[2]

Security and politics[edit]

On 17 November 2009, Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) assisted by NATO International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), raided a compound killing five people. Wardak provincial officials stated that at least four of the people killed were militants. Officials have not said whether the fifth casualty, a woman, was also a militant. Two militants were also arrested.[3]

As of 2009, Sayadabad is one of the districts participating in the Afghan Public Protection Force program.[4]
