Iraqi Forces, U.S. Special Forces target terrorist operations in Northern Iraq, detain 8 suspected terrorists
Multi-National Corps – Iraq PAO

TAJI, Iraq – Iraqi Forces, with U.S. Special Forces as advisers, targeted Al Qaeda in Iraq and and other terrorist operations in two intelligence-driven operations Aug. 15 across northern Iraq. The forces detained eight suspected terrorists, including the leader of a sniper cell in western Mosul.

In the first operation in the Al Mansour district of western Mosul, Iraqi Security Forces detained an alleged sniper amir who operates in western Mosul. Intelligence indicates the targeted individual actively recruits snipers to his cell from other groups and smuggles these snipers back and forth over the western Iraqi border in order for them to receive advanced sniper training in Syria. The forces also seized weapons, ammunition and assorted documents at the suspect’s residence.

In a second operation, the 3rd Brigade 5th Iraqi Army Division forces detained leader of an Al Qaeda in Iraq terrorist smuggling cell in the Hamrin Ridge region. Five other suspicious individuals were also detained. The forces also found weapons and ammunition at the targeted location.

No Iraqi or U.S. Special Forces members were injured during this operation.
