Iraqi Security Forces arrested five suspected terrorists today during two joint security operations in Baghdad and Sharqat.
In northeast Baghdad, the 44th Iraqi Army, with U.S. advisors, searched two buildings in search of a Promise Day Brigade terrorist group leader who allegedly coordinates attacks against security forces operating in Iraq.
Based on preliminary questioning conducted at the scene, three individuals are suspected of being Promise Day Brigade associates. The 44th Iraqi Army arrested the suspects without incident.
During a separate security operation near Sharqat, located approximately 100 km northwest of Kirkuk, Iraqi Police and U.S. advisors searched two buildings for a suspected al-Qaeda in Iraq member who has ties to senior leaders within the terrorist group.
Based on incriminating evidence found at the scene, a warranted suspect and his criminal accomplice were arrested without incident.
