EIGHT TERRORISTS KILLED, BUILDING DESTROYED IN ARAB JABOUR
BAGHDAD – Coalition Forces conducted an air strike Thursday evening after receiving heavy enemy fire during a raid targeting al-Qaida in Iraq terrorists and foreign fighter facilitators.
While receiving enemy fire from several directions, ground forces called in for air support. Eight terrorists barricaded themselves inside one of the buildings and continued to fire at the ground forces. Coalition aircraft dropped precision bombs on the building, resulting in its destruction and the deaths of the eight terrorists.
No Coalition Forces or innocent Iraqis were injured during the air strike.
The operation was part of ongoing efforts to eliminate terrorists and disrupt their operations in the Arab Jabour area.
