Description: BAGHDAD – Coalition forces successfully targeted and captured a wanted terrorist and another associate during a raid north of Tikrit July 27.

The targeted terrorist is a known leader of several al–Qaida in Iraq members in the area. Intelligence indicates that his group is responsible for an attack on a Government of Iraq checkpoint July 6, which killed nine Iraqi security forces and wounded 14 others.

The assault force quickly secured the area and captured the terrorist without incident. No Iraqi civilians or Coalition forces were injured during the operation.
