Coalition Soldiers killed in IED attack (Ninewah)
Multi-National Division – North PAO
NINEWAH, Iraq – Coalition Force Soldiers were conducting a mounted patrol in Ninewah Jan. 28 when insurgents detonated an improvised explosive device, killing five Soldiers.
Insurgents attacked the other Soldiers in the patrol with small arms fire from a nearby mosque.
Iraqi Army forces and CF secured the area and returned fire on the insurgents.
The Iraqi Army entered the mosque, but the insurgents had fled the area.
“The insurgents are willing to desecrate a place of worship by using it to attack Soldiers to further their agenda,” said Maj. Margaret Kageleiry, a Task Force-Iron spokesperson.
The names of the deceased are being withheld pending next of kin notification and release by the Department of Defense.
