IED Strike/Aviation Engagement

While monitoring the Aerostat Surveillance System as part of Marne Torch II, a Soldier observes 4 unknown individuals in a canal along MSR Tampa (a major convoy route). You will hear him notify the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade that he has positive ID on the 4 individuals who were observed leaving the site of an IED blast.

Apache helicopters arrive, receive permission, and then engage the 4 enemy in the canal with 30mm cannon fire. Coalition Forces later report finding 4 KIA with AK-47s, a cache of 7.62 ammunition, and racks. From September 24, 2007.
