KALSU, Iraq – Iraqi Security Forces led a joint raid on an insurgent stronghold and detained eight insurgents Jan. 13 southeast of Al Haswah, Iraq.

The Iraqi-led raid targeted a suspected insurgent safe house, believed to be used to attack Iraqi and coalition forces and store munitions, and bomb-making materials.
The safe house was destroyed to prevent future attacks.  Besides the eight suspects, the raid netted propaganda material, homemade explosive materials, one AK-47 and an improvised explosive device transport truck.
