Operation Cougar

December 10, 2006

In an effort to reduce sectarian violence and insurgency activities, the Iraqi security forces and Iraqi police teamed with Soldiers from the 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment (Stryker) for Operation Cougar in order to secure Adhamiyah.

Iraqi Security Force and Coalition forces conducted a cordon-and-clear operation in Adhamiyah early in the morning on December 10, 2006, with Iraqi police forces providing perimeter checkpoint security.

The operation is part of a larger on-going effort from the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Defense to establish security for the local residents in eastern Baghdad through the lead efforts of the Iraqi Security Force with over-watch support from Coalition troops.
