Iraqi Security Forces thwart kidnapping


MOSUL, Iraq
-- Iraqi Security Forces detained two people suspected of kidnapping the brother of the Mosul chief of police in northern Iraq Feb. 5.
Soldiers from the 102nd Iraqi Army Battalion were working a checkpoint north of Al Hawd when they discovered Abdullah Mohammed Khalif Al-Jaburi, brother of the Mosul chief of police, in the truck of a vehicle being searched. The two people in the vehicle were detained and Khalif was returned to Mosul. Suspects are in custody with no ISF injuries reported.
Iraqi Security Forces have stepped up their involvement in security operations and are conducting numerous independent operations. In preparation for the elections in Iraq, a great deal of emphasis was placed on security. That security posture was bolstered by increased numbers of ISF and their increased capability to provide security for their country.
