Operation Tigers
Operation Nimur

November 26, 2005 - ?

Operation Tigers consisted of approximately 550 US soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team attached to the 2nd Marine Division and about 150 Iraqi Army soldiers. This joint force was charged with securing the Ma'Laab District of eastern Ramadi.

Operation Tigers was the fourth in a series of operations including Panthers, Bruins, and Lions. All of thes operations had the mission of disrupting insurgent activity in the Ramadi region. Starting on November 26, 2005 U.S. and Iraqi soldiers in Operation Tiger were able to kill or detain insurgents and discovered several weapons caches including surface-to-air missiles, rocket-propelled grenades, mortar and artillery rounds, landmines, small arms, ammunition, and improvised explosive device material.

As Operation Tigers continued, the Iraqi Army spearheaded the effort by providing security, identifying cache sites and gathering important information through their interaction with the local citizens. Additionally, several suspected insurgents, to include Imad Salih Al-Fahdawi, a known insurgent linked to the Abu Khattab-al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) terrorist cell, were detained during the operation.
