Terrorists Using Women and Children as Shields Captured, Killed

Suicide Vest Causes Premature Meeting With Allah

From a CENTCOM press release:
BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces raided three suspected terrorist safe houses, detained six terrorists, and killed several others in the town of al Ushsh, northwest al Qaim Oct. 25.

Acting on multiple intelligence sources and tips from concerned citizens, Coalition forces raided the safe houses suspected to be a terrorist stronghold used to conduct attacks against local Iraqi citizens, Iraqi security and Coalition forces.

Upon arriving at the suspected terrorist safe house, Coalition forces entered the safe house where armed terrorists were located with women and children. As a result of the ensuing exchange of gunfire between the terrorists and Coalition forces, the suicide vest of one of the terrorists was detonated, causing the building’s roof to collapse.

The women and children were rescued from the rubble and treated by medical personnel. The group was then moved to a safe area.

Coalition forces then moved to two additional suspected safe houses and secured and searched them, detaining six terrorists.

Upon departing the terrorist stronghold, Coalition forces called in close air support and destroyed the three buildings.
I'm reprinting this story on the off chance that our loyal, unbiased, non-partisan mainstream media completely ignores it.
