American Forces Press Service
CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq, Oct. 17, 2006 Coalition forces defeated a complex insurgent small-arms-fire attack in Ramadi, Iraq, yesterday, killing three insurgents, military officials reported today.
There were no reports of civilian or coalition casualties.
Insurgents attacked three different coalition locations from several buildings at the same time with small-arms fire, officials said. In response, coalition forces established the origin of the gunfire and returned fire with small-arms and machine-gun fire.
When the enemy’s fire did not cease, coalition forces used increasing levels of force, including tank main-gun rounds followed by an air-delivered missile.
