BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi police from the Basrah Special Weapons and Tactics team, along with U.S. force advisors, arrested a suspected terrorist commander Aug. 5, during an Iraqi-led operation in southern Iraq.
During the early-morning mission, the SWAT team operated under the authority of a warrant issued by the Basrah Court. Court documents indicate the police force arrested the suspected insurgent leader in accordance with the Republic of Iraq's terrorism laws.
The suspected terrorist commander of the Basrah-based insurgent group is allegedly responsible for conducting and coordinating improvised explosive device and indirect fire attacks in the area.
The detainment of this individual may reduce the insurgent organization's effectiveness to conduct attacks against the local populace, Iraqi Security Forces and Government of Iraq officials living and working in the area.
