In Baghdad, 4 Filipino contractors were killed in a rocket attack on the Green Zone. The Islamic Army in Iraq, which recently split from al-Qaeda's front and formed the rival Reformation and Jihad Front, claimed credit for the attack.
Operations against Mahdi Army cells continue in Muqtada al Sadr's stronghold of Sadr City. "The individuals targeted during the raid are suspected members of a secret cell terrorist network known for facilitating the transport of weapons and explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs, from Iran to Iraq, as well as bringing militants from Iraq to Iran for terrorist training," notes the Multinational Forces Iraq press release. "Intelligence reports also indicate the secret cell has ties to a kidnapping network that conducts attacks within Iraq."
