Dozens of al Qaeda killed in Anbar Dozens of al Qaeda killed in Anbar

al Reuters: Dozens of al Qaeda killed in Anbar: Iraq police.
A police official in the area, Ahmed al-Falluji, put the number of militants killed at 70, with three police officers killed. There was no immediate verification of the numbers.

Witnesses said dozens of al Qaeda members attacked the village, prompting residents to flee and seek help from Iraqi security forces, who sent in police and soldiers.
This is good news - obviously that the police were able to kill so many al Qaeda, but probably more importantly that these villagers had sided with the Iraqi government against foreign fighters, and then called them for help when attacked by al Qaeda. At least here, our policy in Anbar Province of enlisting the aid of the tribes is working out.
