With the reorginization of the Iraqi Army the 4th Battalion, 1st Brigade was redesginated the 2nd Battalion, 1st Brigade.

The Iraqi Intervention Forces' 4th Battalion was deployed to a southern Baghdad base in early August 2004 for stability and support operations in the city as part of the Iraqi government's continued effort to provide security to the nation. The unit had previously spent several months at the Taji Military Training Base north of Baghdad in special military operations in urban terrain training. This is now one of three Iraqi battalions that has been employed in the Baghdad area of operations. The unit has worked with Multi-National Forces in the area at the direction of the Iraqi Ministry of Defense conducting a variety of missions including traffic control points, intelligence missions, and security and presence patrols. The 4th Battalion has interacted routinely with the Iraqi National Guard and Iraqi Police Service forces in the same sector.

In early November 2004, The IIF's 4th Battalion, 1st Brigade, attackied targets in Fallujah along with U.S. Marine forces from the 1st RCT.
