BAGHDAD Coalition forces killed five terrorists, destroyed a foreign terrorist hideout site and detained 13 suspected terrorists in operations around Iraq Sunday and Monday.
Detainee reporting led Coalition forces to a foreign terrorist hideout site in a remote area of northwest Iraq Monday. Immediately upon their arrival, Coalition forces received heavy fire from a fortified enemy position. Responding in self-defense, Coalition forces returned fire and called for supporting aircraft. Secondary explosions erupted from the target buildings, indicating weapons and bomb materials inside. Five terrorists were confirmed dead in the engagement. Coalition forces also discovered multiple suicide vests and heavy machine guns at the site, which were safely destroyed with the hideout site.
Using information from an operation June 5, Coalition forces targeted members of a terrorist bombing network Monday in Bayji, about 100 kilometers south of Mosul, and detained five suspected terrorists.
In Mosul on Monday, Coalition forces captured an alleged al-Qaeda in Iraq bomber and one additional suspected terrorist.
About 100 kilometers north of Baghdad, Coalition forces captured a man believed to be the al-Qaeda in Iraq emir of Tikrit. The man, who was detained Sunday with three additional suspected terrorists, allegedly replaced a terrorist who was killed during an operation April 26.
Sunday in Baghdad, Coalition forces detained two suspected terrorists while targeting a man who allegedly operates multiple bombing cells in the city.
The Coalition forces will continue to remove terrorist from Iraq, making sure there are no safe havens for them to hide, said Major John Hall, MNF-I spokesman. - 30 -
