TIKRIT, Iraq – Stryker Brigade Soldiers killed two and detained seven individuals during an operation in Baquba Jan. 1.

Three of the detainees are known members of an improvised explosive device cell operating in the Baquba area.

Soldiers of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 38th Infantry Regiment, 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division from Fort Lewis, Wash., conducted the raid in the Baquba suburb of Burhitz.

“It was a successful operation in that we captured seven detainees, and when we were engaged by anti-Coalition Forces, our Soldiers returned fire and were able to ward off the attack, killing two of the enemy,” said Capt. Philip Mundweil, commander of HHC, 1-38th Inf. “The Soldiers performed spectacularly in accordance with their training, and the information we gain from the detainees will undoubtedly lead to follow on information that allows us to kill or capture more al-Qaeda in Iraq in the future.”

No Coalition Forces were injured during the raid.
