Iraqis Train to Be Elite Security Fighters
BAGHDAD, Iraq – They’re commandos, elite forces battling terrorists — and they’re Iraqi.
Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds are working together to protect their homeland. And they’re trained by American soldiers to do it.
FOX News spent a few days watching the unit train to become part of Iraq’s security force, which currently has 120,000 members and a small-but-growing number of skilled fighters from all parts of the country.
The school teaches the Iraqi soldiers to handle raids, ambushes and light infantry tactics.
“I feel good because we are fighting the terrorists,” said one Iraqi commando.
