KARABILAH, Iraq - Iraqi Army soldier relaxes after locating a weapons cache in a school that had been occupied by insurgent forces. The Al-Marwah Elementary for Girls established in 1999 and Fath Al-Futuh High School established in 1989 has been closed since the insurgent forces occupied the city. The intent of Operation Steel Curtain is to restore Iraqi sovereign control along the Iraq-Syria border and destroy the al Qaeda in Iraq terrorists operating throughout the Al Qa�im region. The towns of Husaybah and Karabilah were cleared earlier in the operation and permanent Iraqi-U.S. presence has been established. Pic: Staff Sgt Jason D. Becksted
