US troops and their Afghan and NATO allies are planning their biggest joint offensive since 2001.
Afghan defense ministry spokesman said that the military campaign aims at isolating Taliban gunmen from people.
The attack would concentrate on the town of Marjah in the volatile south known as a Taliban stronghold and a "hub of their lucrative opium trade," US officers said.
No date for the start of the offensive has been released for security reasons.
