ISF out front in matters of security


MOSUL, Iraq -- Iraqi Regular Army Soldiers detained five people in northern Iraq Feb. 5.
     Iraqi Regular Army Soldiers from the 101st Infantry Regiment detained four people suspected of terrorist activities in northern Mosul. While conducting a cordon and search, Iraqi Regular Army Soldiers from the 104th Infantry Regiment also detained an individual suspected of terrorist activities in eastern Mosul. The suspect is in custody with no Iraqi Army 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.
     ISF have detained numerous terrorists in operations in the past couple of months and have confiscated a number of weapons and ammunition.
     Multi-National Force commanders laud the independent operations being carried out by ISF. Officials said the security partnership between Iraqi Security Forces and Multi-National Forces is being strengthened primarily through the increasing strength of the Iraqi Security Forces.
