Suspects of attacking coalition forces detained

Diwaniyah, October 14, 2007.
During the October the 14th operations in Eastern Diwaniyah, soldiers from Multinational Division Center-South (MND-CS) in Iraq, have detained four criminals, suspected of carrying attacks on the temporary patrol base and patrols of coalition forces. The suspects are under investigation.

The operation has been carried by the soldiers from the Special Forces Group, in cooperation with the Iraqi special platoon and support of W-3 Sokół helicopters. This has been the first air assault operation executed by MND-CS units. "To surprise the enemy the soldiers used the rope assault techniques, which require excellent training and precise coordination of all elements of the operation" - said Maj-Gen. Tadeusz Buk, a commander of MND-CS.

The persons detained in Sunday operation have probably participated in Friday's attack (October the 12th) on the temporary patrol base in Diwaniyah. That attack has been carried with sniper fire and anti-armor grenades. The exchange of fire lasted about 50 minutes. To support the soldiers operating in the city a Quick Reaction Force has been sent from Camp Echo. No Polish soldier has been injured.

The temporary patrol base has been developed within the framework of the operation "Oil", which has been carried for the last three weeks. Its goals are ensuring safety and improvement of living conditions of inhabitants of Eastern Diwaniyah. Its next priorities are development of local enterperises and reduction of unemployment.
