London, Aug. 29 – U.S.-led troops captured a “highly-sought” facilitator of Iranian weapons in a pre-dawn raid in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Tuesday, the Coalition announced.

“Iraqi and Coalition Forces conducted a raid to capture a suspected weapons distributor connected to the Special Groups network. The suspected senior weapons facilitator is responsible for distributing weapons and other forms of lethal aide smuggled from Iran into Iraq”, the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said in a statement.

“The individual is also suspected of distributing explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs. The weapons distributor is also suspected of having direct ties to other senior commanders in militias operating in and around Baghdad”, it said.

“We assess that this capture will degrade the weapons smuggling network”, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson. “Coalition Forces will continue their focused operations to interdict Iranian supported terror groups operating in Iraq”.

Two others detained during the raid are also suspected of distributing weapons smuggled into Iraq from Iran, the statement said. “One of the buildings searched during the raid produced currency and identification documents confiscated for further analysis and evaluation”, it added.
