A U.S. airstrike killed eight suspected terrorists and destroyed a building south of Baghdad, the U.S. military said Friday.
The attack occurred Thursday night in Arab Jabour, a mostly Sunni Muslim suburb south of Baghdad.
American troops came under "heavy enemy fire during a raid targeting al-Qaida in Iraq terrorists and foreign fighter facilitators," the U.S. military said in a statement, the AP reports.
Coalition aircraft swooped in, dropping precision bombs on a building where eight suspects had barricaded themselves, the statement said.
All eight were killed. No U.S. forces or Iraqi civilians were injured in the attack, the military said.
