WASHINGTON, April 7, 2010 — Iraqi forces, with U.S. advi­sors, arrest­ed nine sus­pect­ed ter­ror­ists in recent oper­a­tions, mil­i­tary offi­cials report­ed.
Iraqi forces work­ing with U.S. advi­sors arrest­ed the sus­pect­ed leader of the Mosul branch of al-Qai­da in Iraq dur­ing a com­bined oper­a­tion.

Oper­at­ing with a court war­rant, they appre­hend­ed the man believed to be the sus­pect­ed ter­ror­ist leader, along with two sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciates, dur­ing a vehi­cle stop in west­ern Mosul.

The same day, Iraqi forces with U.S. advi­sors arrest­ed a man believed to be the top al-Qai­da in Iraq leader for east­ern Mosul, also dur­ing a vehi­cle stop, along with two sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciates.

Yes­ter­day, Iraqi forces arrest­ed three sus­pects dur­ing two com­bined oper­a­tions in north­east­ern Bagh­dad and Mosul tar­get­ing al-Qai­da in Iraq’s lead­er­ship.

Iraqi forces and U.S. advi­sors searched sev­er­al build­ings for a sus­pect­ed al-Qai­da in Iraq leader believed to be involved in mul­ti­ple ter­ror­ist activ­i­ties, includ­ing bomb­ing oper­a­tions. A pre­lim­i­nary inves­ti­ga­tion led Iraqi forces to arrest a crim­i­nal asso­ciate of the want­ed man.

Dur­ing a sec­ond oper­a­tion, Iraqi forces and U.S. advi­sors searched a build­ing in west­ern Mosul for an al-Qai­da in Iraq leader and arrest­ed two men sus­pect­ed of being his crim­i­nal asso­ciates.
