BAGHDAD – A Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldier was killed during a small arms fire attack while conducting combat operations in a southern section of the Iraqi capital Oct. 4. Soldiers in this unit continue to conduct aggressive attack operations in order to deny and disrupt Al-Qaeda terrorist cells from using this area as a support zone.

Such operations help reduce al-Qaeda’s influence on the local populace and the overall threat of improvised explosive devices along main routes.
