Operation Mawtini was launched on 15 July 2007 by the Regimental Combat Team 2, located in western Al Anbar province, to neutralize attempts by anti-Iraqi Forces to re-establish a presence in key urban areas along the Euphrates River valley.
Operation Mawtini, which included the Iraqi Army’s 2nd and 3rd Brigades of the 7th Division, began on the heels of Operation Harris Ba’sil which had provided a better picture of enemy movement patterns and safe havens. The information gained during Harris Ba’sil allowed the Regiment to conduct focused disruption and security operations in those areas critical to the enemy.
