The first cache was discovered in the town of Bahbahani, Iraq, outside of Musayyib. It contained 15 rockets, 30 mortar fuses, one sniper rifle, 15 rocket-propelled grenades, one rocket propelled-grenade launcher, one tripod, one mortar tube, and two 60mm mortar rounds.
Once the joint patrol discovered the cache, they halted the patrol and immediately cordoned off the area. An explosive ordnance disposal team was alerted and destroyed the cache.
The second cache was discovered north of Karbala. It contained two mortar fuses, two mortar charges, one machine gun with one belt of ammo, one sub-machine gun with seven magazines, several grenade fuses, artillery fuses, blasting caps, and ski masks.
The third cache was uncovered south of Baghdad and contained 100 mortar rounds.
Near Taji Special Iraqi Army Forces, with Coalition advisors, captured a suspected insurgent and detained seven additional suspects during another Sunday raid.
The insurgent is believed to be part of a cell that provides safe houses and staging areas for attacks and other operations in Baghdad to al Qaeda in Iraq.
Several assault rifles were also confiscated during the operation.
There was minimum damage done to the objective and there were no Iraqi civilian, Iraqi Force or Coalition Force casualties.
