London, Sep. 26 – The Iraqi army confiscated Iranian mortars in an operation in central-southern Iraq on Tuesday, the Multi-National Corps – Iraq (MNC-I) said in a statement on Wednesday.

Scouts from the 8th Iraqi army division confiscated and destroyed the mortars along with roadside bombs which were part of a large weapons cache following an intelligence driven operation September 25 in Diwaniyah

“Iraqi forces learned that criminal elements were hiding the cache of explosively formed penetrators and mortars in a secret storage facility. The deadly weapons are responsible for many Iraqi and Coalition fatalities”, the MNC-I said.

The forces confiscated the following materials: three RPG rounds, one EFP case, three EFPs, one shape charge for an improvised explosive device, 12 81mm Iranian mortars, detonator cords, batteries, ammunition, sniper rifle parts and magazines, and a large amount of fuses, blasting caps, homemade firing devices and explosive primers, and a large amount of “terrorist propaganda”.
