Operation Al Majid was an operation conducted by both Marines and Iraqi security forces intended to disrupt and defeat insurgent activity throughout more than 30,000 square miles (78,000 km2) in western Al Anbar Province. The operation began in the fall of 2006 and resulted in a series of berms being constructed around the cities of Anah, Haditha, Haqlaniyah, and Barwanah.
