MND-B Soldier killed during combat operations
Multi-National Division – Baghdad PAO

BAGHDAD — A Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldier was killed and four others wounded during combat operations in a western section of the Iraqi capital when an improvised explosive device detonated near their patrol Aug. 7.

Units operating in this area of Baghdad continue to conduct targeted raids and clearing operations in order to disrupt insurgent and militia elements operating in this section of the Iraqi capital. Destroying these cells reduces overall sectarian violence and helps sets the conditions for the improvement of essential services, economic growth and aids in the transition of Iraqi-led security operations.

The Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
