Baghdad Soldiers and elements from the Iraqi Army launched "Operation Wolf" in eastern Baghdad on Jan. 22, 2007. Soldiers with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, together with troops from 2nd Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division began the security operation in the Adhamiyah section of the city.
The mission was aimed at bringing more security to the area by denying safe haven to insurgents. It was further intended to reduce sectarian violence and was part of an on-going U.S.-Iraqi effort to transition security in the Iraqi capital to Iraqi security forces.
