Task Force Iron Soldiers discover significant caches
AS SADIYA, Iraq – A Task Force Iron unit discovered two significant mortar caches while conducting population engagements in an area east of Hamrin Lake Oct. 26.
Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, attached to 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, found the caches. The first cache consisted of more than 110 assorted mortar rounds and six anti-personnel landmines. The second cache, buried along a culvert, consisted of 15 mortar rounds and one anti-tank recoilless rifle with an improvised gun mount.
“The discovery of these supplies is vital as it continues to limit the supply of extremist groups who continually try to disrupt the progress in Diyala,” said Col. David W. Sutherland, commander of Coalition Forces in Diyala province. “The terrorists have no safe haven – we will destroy them, as well as their support base.”
A Coalition Forces explosive ordnance disposal unit conducted a controlled detonation to destroy the cache items.
