BAGHDAD, Iraq - An Iraqi citizen's tip led Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers to a weapons cache in the New Baghdad district of eastern Baghdad May 16.

After receiving a tip about an explosively formed projectile-making operation in a Kamaliyah bakery at approximately 2 p.m., Soldiers from 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, cordoned off the suspected building.

Criminals attacked the Soldiers with small-arms fire but were driven off by MND-B Soldiers returning fire. Soldiers from another platoon rushed to the scene to provide additional security.

The search operation continued and the MND-B Soldiers found a cache including two explosively formed projectiles, four mortar tubes, six mortar rounds, three rocket-propelled grenade launchers, 14 RPG rounds and numerous armor piercing rounds, four sniper rifles, an RPK machine gun, various improvised explosive device making materials, three grenades, and a vehicle modified for a sniper to fire from unobserved. The vehicle also contained one of the EFPs.

"We are thankful to the citizen who provided the information to make this find possible. Iraqis are taking an active role in their own protection to secure a brighter and safer future for Iraq," said Maj. Joey Sullinger, spokesperson for 4th BCT, 10th Mtn. Div. "We will find these criminals and their weapons of terror no matter where they hide. Along with our Iraqi Security Force counterparts, we will protect the populace."
