Operation Warrior's Rage occurred in the evening of July 15, 2005 in the Ameriyah district of Baghdad. Involving elements of the 256th Brigade Combat Team and 6th Iraqi Army Division, the operation involved conducting cordon-and-search operations.
Soldiers of the 3rd Battalion, 156th Infantry Regiment, 256th BCT and 4th Battalion, 1st Iraqi Army detained three suspects, two of whom were reportedly Syrian, and found 10 to 12 122/130-millimeter rounds enhanced with propane to increase the yield of the explosion.
In another 256th area of operation, 2nd Battalion, 156th Infantry Regiment captured three personnel, all positively identified as brigade-level targets.
The combined efforts of other 256th and Iraqi Army units resulted in the capture of 33 suspected terrorists, with soldiers of 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry Regiment and 3rd Battalion, 4th Iraqi Army bringing in 15 suspects.
While conducting patrols in their area, the 1st Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment and 2nd Battalion, 3rd Iraqi Army performed a hasty cordon and search and brought in 18 suspected terrorists.
