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.
