13 TERRORISTS KILLED IN AIR STRIKE NORTHEAST OF AMIRIYAH
BAGHDAD– Coalition Forces killed an estimated 13 terrorists during an air strike Thursday morning targeting a senior foreign fighter facilitator northeast of Amiriya.
Intelligence reports indicated an individual associated with foreign fighter facilitation was in the targeted area.
During the operation, Coalition Forces detained five suspected terrorists and found a cache including armor piercing ammunition.
Information gained from the target area led Coalition Forces to two suspected foreign fighter safe houses where suspected terrorists were assembled.
Coalition Forces observed the structures to confirm intelligence reports and engaged with precision guided munitions and rotary wing close air support, killing an estimated 13 terrorists.
Coalition Forces continue to dismantle the foreign fighter networks.
This operation significantly reduces foreign fighter facilitators’ ability to operate inside Iraq.
