Two Known Bomb-Makers Targeted Near Nasiriyah
The Nasiriyah Police Force is focusing on efforts to interrupt and interfere with numerous networks of insurgent extremists known to manufacture and place bombs.
These groups of bomb manufacturers are most likely directly responsible for several roadside bomb incidents in recent months, and the rise of formed explosive projectiles used against Iraqi, U.S. and coalition forces. One of the two bomb makers is thought to be a company commander and facilitator in the extremist network.
The other person that was the target of the raid is known to be a key person in the local bomb-making network. The fruit of his labor has been linked to over eight different attacks in the area between April and October.
