US and Iraqi Forces Discover IEDs, Weapons Caches

“Iraqi and U.S. soldiers conducting patrols throughout Iraq seized and destroyed several weapons caches over the past 48 hours, military officials in Baghdad reported. During a patrol March 17 in the village of Owesat near a U.S. forward operating base, soldiers of the 155th Brigade Combat Team discovered a small weapons cache at two houses in the area. Among items seized and destroyed were five 60 mm mortar tubes, 20 155mm artillery shells, nine ammunition cans of 7.62 mm rounds, and a rocket-propelled grenade launcher. Five suspects were detained in that incident.”
