Description: Security forces targeted associates of a terrorist leader who is reported to be linked with attacks against Iraqi civilians, security forces and Coalition troops. This individual is reported to have significant links to several high level al–Qaida in Iraq leaders. Credible intelligence has indicated that he had been attempting to obtain rockets for a future attack.

The assault force quickly secured the target areas and captured the terrorists without incident. After the target was secured, the troops found five grenades, one AK-47, seven ammunition magazines, and one assault vest.

These raids are another example of how Iraqi and Coalition forces continue deliberate and methodical operations in order to hunt down and capture or kill all terrorists threatening the security and stability of Iraq. These operations will continue to be successful with the support and cooperation of the Iraqi people.
