Air Assets Proving The Difference In Conflicts
The members of the Iraqi Security forces stationed in the Kirkuk province have been able to intercept and arrest different groups of insurgents using Air aviation assets. Using air response, the members of the Iraqi Security forces are able to response very swiftly to reports of terrorist activity. Recently the joint coalition and ISF forces swarmed down in Hawija and arrested 4 different anti Iraqi forces.
The members of the Iraqi Forces that are using the Air Assets are able to augment their ground efforts fighting with air assets to lead the effort. Because they have air assets they are able to respond better than they have been able to before, with a swift response effort making all the difference in many situations.
Recently a vehicle was speeding down a street when the helicopters were utilized to intercept and stop the car, and arrest the occupants. When they intercepted the riders, they discovered a number of grenades and a quantity of explosives. This led to the prevention of a number of suspected terrorist acts, with the explosives being used for evil purposes.
There were five rocket propelled grenades, as well as a large number of standard grenades, along with a quantity of other weapons and munitions. The 4 occupants of the vehicle were arrested and taken to the coalition base for questioning, and the vehicle and the bomb parts were successfully destroyed.
