11 Iranian-Backed "Special Group" Terrorists Die From Existential Crisis And JDAMs, But Mostly JDAMs

Dead-bang:

Today's raid in Al Kut targeted "a Special Groups criminal element member reportedly responsible for attacks against Coalition forces and supporters of Coalition forces" who "was also reportedly an associate of criminal element leaders involved in attacks on Coalition forces."

Coalition Special Forces teams, likely the hunter-killer teams of Task Force 88, took fire as they approached the objective, "returned fire, and called for supporting aircraft to engage." Multinational Forces Iraq estimated 11 Special Groups fighters were killed in the strike.

...

Al Kut is known to be a strategic distribution hub for the Special Groups supply lines from Iran into Iraq. Weapons, such as the deadly explosively formed penetrator land mines, rockets, and mortars are stored by the Special Groups in Al Kut and other cities, to be pushed forward to tactical depots to be used in attacks in Baghdad and the Shia South.

US and Iraqi forces clearly have been targeting the Special Groups networks in Al Kut for the past two weeks. Today's engagement was the fourth such raid since December 18. On that date, elements of the 8th Iraqi Army Division captured an improvised explosive device cell leader during a raid in the city.

If we "make" more terrorists for every terrorist we kill, damn, we've made an awful lot of new terrorists the past month.

Thanks to dri.

Bonus: Palestinian Rocket and Bomb-Maker Killed By Jewish Conspiracy And Airstrike, But Mostly... Well, Actually, It's An Equal Mix Of Both: Seven terrorists killed in all.
