Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Kills Six Armed Criminals Near Baghdad

A Hellfire missile fired from a coalition unmanned aerial vehicle killed six heavily armed criminals in northeastern Baghdad Thursday, military officials reported. Officials said coalition forces from Multinational Division Baghdad operating the UAV fired on a large group of criminals with rocket-propelled-grenade launchers and a mortar tube.

In other operations in Iraq (Thursday):

  • A Multinational Division Baghdad aerial weapons team saw three men at a potential rocket site in northeastern Baghdad. When the men caught site of the team, they fled the scene in a black sedan. But when a UAV showed the criminals returning to the site and confirmed the presence of rockets, the team returned and destroyed three rockets with a Hellfire missile. The criminals fled the scene. The presence of two additional rockets was confirmed at a different site a short time later. The team also destroyed those rockets with a Hellfire missile.
  • In a separate event, a UAV showed a rocket launch site and positively identified a vehicle used in the earlier attack in northeastern Baghdad. The UAV hit the sedan with a Hellfire missile.
