More Weapons Caches Seized, Suspected Insurgents Detained
Camp Blue Diamond, Iraq -- Marines from the 1st Marine Division of the I Marine Expeditionary Force detained 15 suspected insurgents and discovered several weapons caches today during operations throughout Al Anbar Province.
Among the weapons and munitions destroyed were rocket propelled grenades, small arms, rockets, mortars and material for assembling IEDs.
The discovery and subsequent destruction of the weapons caches reduces anti-Iraqi forces' ability to launch attacks against Iraqi and Multi-National Forces and Iraqi civilians.
The Marines, Soldiers and Sailors assigned to the 1st Marine Division continue to enhance security and stability in the Al Anbar Province for the Iraqi people in advance of the upcoming elections.
