Air strike kills five terrorists setting roadside IED

By SOP newswire

BAGHDAD, Iraq — An air strike early Sunday morning killed five terrorists and wounded one as they emplaced an IED on a road near Arab Jabour. 

Coalition Forces observed a group of terrorists digging a hole in a road on the outskirts of Arab Jabour while one individual stood watch.  As the terrorists placed an IED in the hole, Coalition aircraft engaged the group with precision fires causing the bomb to detonate.   
Ground forces transported the wounded terrorist to a nearby medical facility. 

Coalition Forces conducted this operation after careful and deliberate analysis to mitigate collateral damage.
