FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MND-B PATROL ATTACKED BY SMALL ARMS FIRE
CAMP LIBERTY, Iraq — Two MND-B Soldiers were killed and two others wounded when their combat security patrol was engaged by an improvised explosive device and small arms fire in a northwestern section of Baghdad May 18.
During the past week, elements of this unit have found two weapons caches and detained one suspected insurgent during targeted raids conducted in the area. Finding these weapons caches and arresting individuals affiliated with them helps reduce the threat of insurgent attacks and continues to aid in providing a more secure and safe living environment for the Iraqi people.
The deceased Soldiers’ names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
