IP launch first preemptive strike against insurgents

Lt. General Ibrahim deputy minister of interior ordered the first of the IP strikes against militants' hideouts in Baghdad three days ago. The Special IP Force made a surprise assault on a location at Hay Ur in Baghdad used by militants as a weapons storage. The IP engaged in a firefight with the militants who left the location in a hurry after some were injured.
No elements from the Special IP Force were injured and they uncovered a huge stockpile of RPG's, mortars, TNT, ammunitions, and explosives at the location.
