Four terrorists killed, six suspects detained

By SOP newswire

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition Forces killed four terrorists and detained six suspected terrorists during a mission to disrupt an al-Qaida vehicle-borne improvised explosive device cell in Tarmiyah Friday.

As ground forces made their way toward the targeted building, they received enemy fire from the vicinity of a mosque.  Coalition Forces returned fire, killing four terrorists, and continued toward the targeted building.

At the targeted building, the ground forces detained two suspected terrorists.  After they left the building, they returned to the vicinity of the mosque and six individuals, including two wounded men, exited the building.

Four suspected terrorists were detained and the two wounded men were treated by ground forces on scene.  They were then medically evacuated to a nearby military medical center.

Considering the amount of human suffering and damage inflicted by VBIEDs, it is always significant when Coalition Forces are able to eliminate and detain terrorists involved in organizing these attacks.
