BAGHDAD – Coalition forces killed four terrorists and detained 10 suspected terrorists while targeting the al-Qaeda bombing and foreign terrorist facilitation networks in northern Iraq Tuesday.
Coalition forces targeted members of a bombing network in Mosul and ordered occupants of the target building to surrender. Several people came out peacefully, but four terrorists, one armed with a pistol, refused to comply with the force’s instructions. Perceiving hostile intent, Coalition forces engaged and killed the terrorists, one of whom was wanted for criminal activity with al-Qaeda in Iraq. Another wanted man on scene was detained with three associates for his alleged role in manufacturing and distributing bombing components.
Also in Mosul, Coalition forces conducted a precision operation and captured an alleged mid-level AQI leader. The suspect is believed to oversee attacks and facilitate the movement of foreign terrorists into the city.
More terrorists in the ground or in jail...
