â€œThe terrorists also continue to conduct very limited indirect fire attacks against forward operating bases, joint security stations and at the International Zone in an attempt to harm innocent civilians and government officials working towards reconciliation in the country,â€ said Col. Allen Batschelet, chief of staff, MND-B. â€œWe will relentlessly pursue those individuals who would seek to murder, terrorize or intimidate the people of Baghdad. Contrary to reporting, this is not a battle against Jaysh Al Mahdi â€“ this is straight and simple a fight against those individuals breaking the law.â€
