the city surprised the attacking Americans with an intense
barrage, forcing them to retreat to the north for fear of being
Eyewitnesses reported that the sudden Resistance attack sent US
supply lines into disarray, forcing the Americans to retreat to
the north of the rail road tracks. Witnesses said that the
American snipers, however, were still posted atop high rooftops,
although their armor had pulled back under heavy rocket fire from
mobile Resistance rocket launchers.
Witnesses reported seeing some 25 balls of fire – 16 of them very
intense – after Bradley armored vehicles or Abrams tanks had been
hit by rocket fire and set ablaze. Smaller fire balls were the
burning hulks of stricken Humvees or smaller armored vehicles.

dispatch posted at 12:55am Wednesday local time (11:55pm Tuesday
night, Mecca time) the al-Fallujah correspondent of Mafkarat
al-Islam reported that the city was at the time of writing
undergoing US bombardment, and that the fighting on the ground
between the invaders and the Iraqi Resistance had sharply
intensified, particularly in the ash-Shurtah neighborhood, and the
ad-Dubbat neighborhood in the center of the city.
forces were at that hour also reportedly penetrating into the
al-‘Askari neighborhood of the city amidst intensive US bombing
and in the course of bloody fighting. Yet the situation for the
advancing Americans in the city had not yet stabilized and there
were questions about the extent to which some US advances might
have been in response to Resistance ruses.
Meanwhile Iraqi Resistance forces bombarded American troop
concentrations with more than 150 rockets during the previous hour
in various sectors of the front in the city, onto which US forces
had convered from all four directions. All the American units
stopped, however, in the areas under Resistance bombardment.
US invaders penetrate four neighborhoods of

time) the al-Fallujah correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam
reported that US aggressor troops had invaded four neighborhoods
in al-Fallujah after hysterical bombing by US aircraft.
correspondent wrote that the Ameican invaders had entered the
neighborhoods of al-Mu‘allimin, al-Jawlan, al-Jaghifi, and
correspondent wrote that the US forces were using the same
approach they had used when they invaded the city of Samarra’:
deploying snipers atop most of the buildings of the city
inhibiting the movement of Resistance fighters on the ground and
then sending in their battle tanks afterwards.
Massive American bombing of al-Fallujah “more intense than the
bombing of Baghdad.”
dispatch posted at 8:55pm Tuesday evening local time (7:55pm Mecca
time) the correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam in al-Fallujah
reported that US aggressor forces had so far dropped more than
200,000 bombs on the city in bombing and shelling that was going
on without letup.
planes had dropped about 90 container bombs which blast apart
releasing anti-personnel cluster bombs. In all more than 200,000
cluster bombs would be released from 90 containers.
figure is in addition to the incendiary rockets and other forms of
anti-personnel shrapnel bombs.
Eyewitnesses report that the bombing is more intense than that to
which Baghdad was subjected before it was occupied by the
Americans in spring 2003.
Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent wrote that although the morale
of the people of al-Fallujah and their determination to fight on
remains high, the humanitarian situation in the city is at tragic
levels. The wounded are piling up without any prospect of medical
treatment or doctors available. This is particularly true since
the Americans bombarded the al-Hadar Hospital and the Zayid Mobile
Amidst fierce fighting, Resistance blocks US advance from the
north, as the south of the city holds firm but the situation on
the eastern and western fronts is unclear.
dispatch posted at 7:10pm Tuesday night local time (6:10pm Mecca
time) the local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported
that Resistance forces had halted the US advance into

fighting at that hour was under way in the al-Mu‘allimin
neighborhood of the city, where a stream of US tanks were trying
to pour in. Resistance forces are subjecting the invading
American front ranks to a barrage of fire.
particular difficulty for the Resistance fighters is posed by US
helicopters that land American snipers on buildings in the areas
surrounding battle zones. This was particularly apparent in the
northern al-Jaghifi neighborhood, where the American invaders
landed more than 10 snipers on the at-Tawfiq Mosque, making it
difficult for the Resistance fighters to move in that part of the
situation in the eastern and the western parts of the city remains
unclear and no confirmed information was available from those
sectors at that time. The correspondent expressed the opinion
that Tuesday night might be decisive since, as a member of the
Council of Mujahideen of al-Fallujah said, Resistance fighters’
morale would get a boost as it was the night of the 27th
of the holy month of Ramadan – called the Night of Power in the
addition, the correspondent noted, the Iraqi Resistance usually
carries out its major attacks under cover of night when it is more
difficult for American forces to follow their movements. The
previous night, for example, Resistance forces pounded the
Americans with 160 rockets.
Meanwhile on the south side of the city, the Resistance was still
largely solid. Aggressor troops had been unable to advance from
that direction towards the city.

al-Mu‘allimin neighborhoods in the north around one hour before he
filed his report.
correspondent wrote that the US forces used all types of weapons
in their assault against the Resistance fighters of the people of
al-Fallujah who continue to battle violently against the US
invaders. The Americans are using weapons that they had never
used in Iraq before, except during the famous Battle at Saddam
International Airport in the spring of 2003 (where attacking US
CIA forces were trapped and killed by Iraqi forces under the
leadership of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein shortly before the
occupation of Baghdad).

around al-Fallujah General Hospital west of the city where there
is a heavy concentration of US troops. The correspondent wrote
that Resistance rockets are striking US forces but not the
hospital itself with great accuracy, indicating that the
Resistance studied the terrain in that area before the latest US
offensive, so as to avoid striking the hospital itself. The
correspondent wrote that the US forces did not seize control of
the General Hospital by ground assault but by landings from the
Physician issues call to all Iraqi doctors to come to al-Fallujah
as number of wounded mounts out of control.
Muhammad Isma‘il a member of the governing board of the
al-Fallujah General Hospital issued an appeal on Tuesday to
doctors around the country to come to al-Fallujah to help with the
disastrous situation in the city as a result of the ferocious US
Isma‘il told Mafkarat al-Islam that the number of injured
and wounded citizens of the city is increasing at an alarming
rate, and that even if al-Fallujah General Hospital were working
at its maximum capacity – which it cannot due to the destruction
inflicted by the Americans – it would still not be able to provide
medical care to the number of wounded persons who are now being
produced by the American offensive.
Isma‘il noted that US troops had arrested many members of the
medical staff in al-Fallujah and had sealed the stores of medical
supplies. As a result, an Iraqi nurse yesterday had to perform
surgery to remove a piece of American shrapnel from the back of an
Resistance pounds US forces from behind their lines, widening the
field of conflict.

throughout the predominantly Sunni regions of Iraq. A statement
from the Resistance disclosed that the Resistance aims at
spreading the struggle from al-Fallujah to Baghdad after fierce

the rear of the attacking Americans. Resistance forces pounded
them with more than 200 rockets in unprecedented barrages
