Seven Terrorist Insurgents Killed
The American Forces Press Service reports that seven terrorists who were firing at US troops from a mosque have been killed by a helicopter gunship attack. From the bulletin:
Unable to suppress a barrage of machine gun and rocket propelled grenade fire from insurgents holed up in a mosque in the Sarai district of Tal Afar, Iraq, coalition forces called in helicopter gunships to stop the enemy salvo, Multinational Force Iraq officials reported today.Also:
Seven terrorists were killed in the Sept. 4 helicopter counterattack at a mosque in eastern Tal Afar described as a Takfirist meeting place.
No injuries to U.S. personnel were reported, officials noted.
When Iraqi police recently moved in to search a black car with two men inside that they'd stopped at a checkpoint, they found a wounded insurgent and another terrorist trying to eat a note that described an attack on a coalition forces' forward operating base, officials said.I'm reprinting these stories on the off chance that our loyal, unbiased, non-partisan mainstream media completely ignore them.
The car was also loaded with bomb-making materials, including five telephone receivers, six radios, two cell phones, one wired to a radio, six washing machine timers, five extended-range antennae and batteries. The men also had $1,400 in $100 U.S. bills, according to officials.
