The three wounded students were taken to a local hospital while Iraqi Forces searched for the missing students.
The soldiers identified a dump truck with a tarp over the back behaving suspiciously. The vehicle was stopped after warning shots were fired. The driver and passenger fled to a local residence.
Some of the students also left the area immediately after the truck was stopped. Thirty-four students were picked up by Iraqi Security Forces at the scene. The other eight students were picked up at a local combat outpost.
All 42 students are accounted for and are safe.
The three kidnappers were positively identified by the hostages and detained by Iraqi Police.
“This swift and professional response by the Iraqi Security Forces is just another example of their ability to serve and protect the Iraqi people,” said Maj. Gary Dangerfield, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment spokesperson.

Sometimes it seems that this can not be, but as we see: (5 years ago, when we were together with https://www.coolessay.net in Afghanistan, we were amazed that we met friendly people there who, although tired of the war, treated us well It was obvious that they wanted one thing: that they were left alone.Only Afghanistan seems to people as a severe lifeless place where everything explodes all the time, everyone is killed, etc. Yes, of course this is not a paradise on earth. go there to see how the war temperes people, a pattern of endurance and patience.
