Death Squad Cell in Baghdad Taken Down – CentCom email
BALAD – Iraqi Army forces conducted a pre-dawn raid in Baghdad on July 25, capturing six targeted insurgents, all of whom are believed to be involved in ‘death squad’ activities.
As coalition force advisers looked on, Iraqi forces raided an objective in southwest Baghdad consisting of four separate buildings and captured the cell leader and five other key members of an insurgent “punishment committee.”
Iraqi forces also seized two AK-47 assault rifles, one pistol, and one set of body armor. The operation occurred without incident; there were no Iraqi or coalition force casualties.
