Gunmen killed after attack on Coalition Forces
TIKRIT, Iraq – Coalition Forces came under small arms fire by hostile forces operating from a structure near Hussayniyah just before midnight Friday.
Coalition Forces returned fire and attack helicopters, armed with missiles, engaged the hostile forces.
Three of the gunmen then fled to another nearby structure.
Coalition attack aircraft targeted structure with precision munitions and observed at least seven secondary explosions, possibly caused by explosives and munitions stored inside.
Iraqi Police inspected both sites and reported six individuals killed and five wounded. The wounded were transported by Iraqi Police to a medical facility for treatment.
