London, Aug. 13 – Coalition forces captured 13 “suspected terrorists with ties to extremist militia Special Groups” in a pre-dawn raid on Sunday in the Baghdad slum Sadr City as part of a campaign to root out weapons facilitators coming from neighbouring Iran, the U.S. military announced.

“Coalition Forces conducted the raid to capture or kill highly-sought weapons facilitators with connections to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps – Quds Force in Iran”, said a statement by the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I).

“Those detained are suspected of facilitating the transport of weapons and personnel from Iran into Iraq. They are also believed to have facilitated the transport of deadly Explosively Formed Projectiles (EFPs) from Iran into Iraq to be used against Coalition Forces”, it said.

“As Coalition Forces were departing the area, they encountered and destroyed a light utility truck that posed a threat to the force. … During the raid, Coalition Forces confiscated a computer hard-drive, documents and photographs.

“A Coalition air strike also engaged the same light utility truck, destroying the truck and killing an estimated three to five people in the truck believed to be terrorists”, the statement added.
