London, Aug. 01 – Coalition forces in Baghdad captured three individuals believed to be terrorists with ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps – Qods Force (IRGC-QF) in a raid on Tuesday, the U.S. military said in a statement.

The raid took place in the Baghdad neighbourhood of Shulah, said the statement by the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I).

“Coalition Forces received sustained small arms and rocket propelled grenade (RPG) fire from terrorists during a precision raid to capture or kill operatives with connections to the IRGC-QF. Coalition Forces returned fire on the identified enemy positions killing four terrorists”, it said.

“The captured suspected terrorists are believed to be key players in a major facilitation network for smuggling weapons and components of Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs) from Iran into Iraq to be used against Coalition Forces”, it added.

“Coalition troops continue to conduct highly successful raids to capture these terrorists who bring EFPs and other lethal aid from Iran into Iraq”, said Major Marc Young, MNF-I spokesperson. “Iranian influence is hindering the prospects of peace and stability in Iraq. We remain committed to dismantling terror networks that seek to kill innocent Iraqis and Coalition Forces”.
