ISF find weapons cache in East Baghdad Mosque

Since Operation 'Fardh al-Qanoon' has gone into effect, many weapons have been taken out of the hands of our enemy:
CAMP TAJI, Iraq – The increased presence of Iraqi and Multi-National Division – Baghdad forces on the streets of eastern Baghdad continued to produce results as Iraqi troops found weapons caches inside a mosque and several surrounding buildings in Al Shamisiyah Feb. 15.

The cache was found inside the Al Farkan Mosque and included six mortar tubes, multiple rocket-propelled grenades, several AK-47s and other weapons.

The cache was discovered by Iraqi Soldiers from the 1st and 3rd Battalions of the 2nd Infantry Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division. Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division provided security for the operation while the Iraqis conducted the search.
This is a good sign that the Iraqi government is finally getting serious. They are willing to go into places of worship, because they know that is where these creatons hide their destructive devices. I'm glad they did a sweeping search into the surrounding buildings. Great job guy!
