Al Qaeda in Iraq terrorist cell meeting site destroyed

Multi-National Force-Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces destroyed a terrorist safe house Oct. 18 in Karabilah where two al Qaeda in Iraq terror cells were attempting to meet and reorganize following successful Coalition operations.

At 11:21 p.m., Coalition air forces delivered precision-guided munitions that destroyed the terrorist safe house. The type of munitions used and the timing of the air strike mitigated the risk to civilians in the local area.

Multiple intelligence sources identified the terrorist safe house, which was used as both an operational base and safe haven.
