MND-B Soldier attacked during combat operations
Multi-National Division – Baghdad PAO

BAGHDAD — A Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldier was killed during combat operations in an area west of the Iraqi capital Sep 19.

Units operating in this area of Iraq continue to conduct targeted raids and clearing operations in this section of the Iraqi capital in order to disrupt insurgent and criminal militia elements. Destroying these cells reduces overall sectarian violence and helps sets the conditions for the improvement of essential services, economic growth and aids in the transition of Iraqi-led security operations.

The Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
