An Iraqi army force has raided a bomb-making workshop in al-Karma, east of Fallujah, where it arrested five gunmen, Lt. Col. Nejim al-Dulaimi, Iraqi army spokesman in Anbar, said Saturday (February 2nd).
Al-Qaeda had turned a large house "into a workshop for manufacturing car bombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs)," al-Dulaimi told Al-Shorfa.
The force arrested five gunmen, including one in charge of booby-trapping cars, and dismantled a car the group had prepared for detonation, he said.
Police found different weapons, explosives, machines and hand tools the cell was using to booby trap cars at the house, he said.
