Number of Crusaders killed/injured in a failed assault on a public prison
in Wilayat Kirkuk, leaving tens of prisoners killed.
In a failed operation by the Crusader Coalition, American forced have launched an aerial assault on one of the public prisons in al-Musanna’a area at around 2 AM on the night of the 8th of Muharram. Many helicopters and airplanes participated in the assault, including 4 Chinboks and 2 Apaches. The airplanes and the Apaches launched a heavy series of airstrikes on many positions near the prison and on the road between the prison and the city of al-Hawjiya, fearing that reinforcements could be sent. 6 brothers were guarding the prison, and the exchange of gunfire with went on for 2 hours. The cowardly Crusaders had to kill some of the prisoners and they took others with them, none of them being from the apostate “Peshmergas”, then they retreat, followed by another round of airstrikes on the prison and the remaining prisoners, killing most of them, counted in tens in this cheap, cowardly operation.
The operation resulted in the killing of a Crusader and left many of them injured, leaving some of their material on the scene, while 3 of the brothers guarding the prison attained martyrdom, 3 others have been injured then given medical care. Allah has shown the cowardice and the failure of the Crusaders in this operation, which they needed to cover up in media lies all their recent losses.
And all praise is to Allah in all cases.
