    into

    Dear experts,

    What does 'into' mean in the sentence:

    '"As far as the assessment, we believe that we are into an area" of south Baghdad "where we're seeing a very strong al-Qaida cell," Fil said.'

    Thanks in advance,

    Olga

    Re: into

    It suggests to me that they have moved into the area but have not taken hold of it fully.
