BAGHDAD, Oct 11 (KUNA) -- Over 37 terrorists were killed, 25 suspects
detained, and several weapons caches were discovered during military
operations conducted by the Multi-National Forces (MNF) in Diyala province, an
MNF statement said.
The forces executed military operations October 4-7 targeting Al-Qaeda in
Iraq safe havens in the Diyala River Valley, north eastern Baghdad.
During the operations, the forces discovered several weapon caches and a
mosque frequently used by Al-Qaeda in Iraq for meetings.
They destroyed a river crossing to prevent further weapon smuggling.
Additional air strikes demolished five Qaeda in Iraq safe houses. One of
the buildings was used as a command and reconnaissance location. The forces
also destroyed a truck reportedly used to transport weapons.
These military operations were conducted by the MNF in several cities of
Diyala after the province's largest city of Baquba was rid of the so called
Islamic State of Iraq outfit.(end)
