Security Increase Routs Insurgency
The security in the Baghdad region has increased to the point that the different insurgency networks have been degraded. Al Qaeda is largely on the run, with the networks getting eliminated and the members either arrested or pushed out and on the run.
Members of the Sons of Iraq have been working hard with the coalition to improve the overall condition of the Baghdad region. Sons of Iraq members have discovered a number of weapons caches and turned over large amounts of weapons to the Iraq Security Force, along with weapons including IED explosives, and different grenades, rifles and other explosives.
Members of the Iraqi Security Forces also discovered a 10 inch abandoned shell in the housing tract located in West Rashid. The Sons of Iraq have established a security perimeter, and work to go on daily patrols along with members of the Iraqi Security forces to insure that the security of the area is maintained.
Members of the 1st BCT, 4th Infantry division are working diligently with members of both the Iraqi Army, and the Iraqi National police to secure the region, and the Sons of Iraq have helped in a large fashion to that end.
When members of the 4th Infantry EOD squad arrived and took possession of the discovered weapons, then they were safely transported to the disposal range outside of Baghdad and destroyed.
