BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition Forces killed three terrorists and detained four suspected terrorists during a raid in Baghdad Tuesday.

Upon approaching the objective, ground forces received small arms fire.  Coalition Forces returned fire killing three terrorists.

Coalition Forces continued their mission and approached the first targeted building.  As they breached the building using a small explosives charge, some linen inside the room caught fire.  The fire was quickly extinguished and no one was injured.

During the search of the second targeted building, Coalition Forces detained four suspected terrorists and found four machine guns, ammunition and ammo cartridges. 

This and other recent operations in the region highlight the deliberate, methodical dismantlement of the al-Qaeda in Iraq network and those who contribute to its illegal actions.
