KALSU, Iraq — Iraqi Security Forces and Fort Richardson Paratroopers conducted a joint raid in Muwayllihah, Iraq, to deny insurgents refuge and prevent them from emplacing improvised explosive devices June 14.

Company C, 3rd Battalion, 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division and ISF detained two suspected insurgents during the operation dubbed Joint Operation Ardennes.

“Operation Ardennes was an excellent starting point for future joint operations with 2nd Brigade, 8th Iraqi Army Security Forces,” said Staff Sgt. Clifton Talley, the fire support noncommissioned officer for C Company, from Cookeville, Tenn. “Working with this platoon was a great experience for Coalition Forces and Iraqi Security Forces alike.”

Operation Ardennes yielded two suspected insurgents wanted for their potential involvement in targeting Iraqi and Coalition Forces with improvised explosive devices and for their involvement in sectarian violence. The two individuals are currently being held for further questioning.
