WASHINGTON, Oct. 11, 2005 – Iraqi and coalition forces netted 98 terror suspects and several weapons caches in separate operations Oct. 9, 10 and today in Baghdad, military officials reported.
More than 600 Iraqi and U.S. forces responded to reports of terrorists operating in southern Baghdad and conducted multiple cordon-and-search operations in the early morning hours today.
U.S. soldiers from 3rd Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, linked up with Iraqi special police commandos to take the terrorists by surprise. AH-64 Apache helicopters soon arrived to engage in the firefight.
The forces acted on a report that two men were on a roof overseeing a group of terrorists emplacing improvised explosive devices. Troops detained 57 terror suspects and killed two others.
