Iraqi Security Forces, U.S. Special Operations Forces detain six in northern Iraq
Multi-National Corps – Iraq PAO

BALAD, Iraq – Iraqi Security Forces, with U.S. Special Operations Forces as advisers, detained six suspected terrorists Oct. 8 in two night-time raids in northern Iraq.

Iraqi Special Operations Forces raided four target objectives in the Ninewa Province and detained a suspected al Qaeda in Iraq Emir believed to be the approving authority for the appointment of many of Mosul’s terrorist cell leaders.

Additionally, the suspected Emir is directly linked to a Sept. 26 vehicle-borne improvised explosive device attack against a Mosul courthouse. One other suspected terrorist linked to the Emir was detained during the raid.

A weapons cache containing a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, a RPG sight, two RPG armor piercing rounds, two RPG high-explosive rounds, four RPG boosters, and 10 ski masks was discovered at the targeted location. Because of the size of the cache, the items were moved to a remote location and destroyed in a controlled detonation.

Near Taji, Iraqi Army Scouts detained four suspected members of the Abu Ghazwan al-Qaeda in Iraq terrorist network which are involved in vehicle-borne improvised explosive device, IED, and small arms attacks against Coalition Forces.

These terrorists are directly linked to Abu Bakr who was detained by the Iraqi Army Scouts during a series of helicopter assault raids near Taji Sept. 16 and was second in command of the Abu Ghazwan’s network.

No U.S. or Iraqi forces were injured during these operations.

In the hands of any self-respecting gun nut, that "cache" wouldn't have lasted 2 minutes!

Still, any excuse to blow stuff up is a good excuse...
