Patrol Struck by Roadside Bomb
Multi-National Division – Baghdad Public Affairs

BAGHDAD – Iraqi security forces and Multi-National Division – Baghdad Soldiers continue conducting operations in support of Operation Fardh Al-Qanoon to help set ongoing conditions for a stable and self reliant Iraq.

While conducting a dismounted combat patrol, a MND-B Soldier died when an improvised explosive device detonated near the Soldier’s position south of Baghdad March 23.

In the past week, elements from this MND-B unit have detained 16 suspected insurgents. These arrests, along with other operations, disrupt terrorist network activities, and diminish their capabilities to carry out attacks against Iraqi civilians and security forces.

The deceased Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
