Early morning raids disrupt terrorist activities
BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces raided two terrorist safe houses in Mosul, killing two terrorists and detaining three others Sept. 19 at 1:51 a.m.
The terrorists were suspected of having senior al-Qaeda in Iraq connections in Mosul and northern Iraq.
Upon entering the first terrorist safe house, Coalition forces were engaged with small arms fire by two of the men. Coalition forces immediately returned fire, killing the two terrorists. Coalition forces searched and secured the safe house, detaining one additional terrorist who was hiding in the house. Coalition forces then moved to the second safe house, where they detained two terrorists without incident.
The Coalition’s use of multiple intelligence sources and tips from concerned citizens has resulted in capturing or killing at least four “Emirs,” or regional leaders, during the past four months.
