Wednesday, 1 December 2004.

 

Al-Fallujah.

 

People of al-Bu ‘Irrin attack puppet “national guardsmen” after they threaten to rape women of the district.

 

In a dispatch posted at 9:55pm Mecca time Wednesday night, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that fierce fighting erupted between puppet so-called “Iraqi national guard” forces and the people of the al-Bu ‘Irrin fields after an officer in the puppet forces threatened to rape the women of the area if they did not hand over youths in the area who were with the Resistance.

 

The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent reported that the officer and his men stormed the al-Bu ‘Irrin fields northwest of al-Fallujah and threatened to rape the women of the area.  The threat aroused the fury of the people of the area who attacked the puppet troops with light and medium weight arms, including BKC machine guns and other automatic weapons.

 

The fighting lasted about an hour and a half and when it grew intense, the puppet forces retreated.  Then US troops entered the area and arrested those who had fought against the puppet troops.

 

The correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reports that the puppet forces have used such cheap threats in numerous areas.

 

Resistance attacks to the west of al-Fallujah.

 

In a dispatch posted at 9:50pm Mecca time Wednesday night, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US forces had taken losses in men and materiel when one of their command posts on the as-Saddah Road was subjected to a Resistance bombardment.  The correspondent in the area reported that the Resistance fired three Grad rockets at the command post located between the al-Jawlan neighborhood and the al-Azraqiyah village area west of the city.  Three US Bradley armored vehicles and four Humvees were destroyed and other losses were also inflicted on the US troops.

 

Minor fighting erupted for about 10 minutes between 8:15 and 8:25pm Wednesday in the al-Jawlan neighborhood.  Resistance bombs exploded and then Resistance fighters opened fire with C5K rockets on US troops.  An American spy plane was seen hovering in the sky over the area, and at that point fighting ceased.

 

Fighting rages for hours outside al-Fallujah’s south on Wednesday.

 

In a dispatch posted at 9:25pm Mecca time Wednesday night, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that fierce fighting raged for several hours between the Resistance and US Marines south of al-Fallujah, from 8am until 5:45pm Wednesday.  The fighting was concentrated around the ash-Shuhada’ and al-Jubayl neighborhoods.

 

The fighting consisted of artillery exchanges and that the US forces were unable to advance, despite their receiving US air cover in the form of rocket attacks on Resistance positions.  US helicopters were unable to take a great part in the attack, however since Resistance forces have been able to bring down a number of them.

 

In Wednesday’s fighting Resistance forces from outside al-Fallujah also took part, having entered the city at the start of the battle.  They then left after the fighting was over, indicating that the American ring around the city had now become weak.

 

The US attack targeted the neighborhoods of ash-Shuhada’ and al-Jubayl after the US brought back units to the areas outside the southern and northern parts of the city, and also outside a small part of the eastern end of al-Fallujah, opposite the al-‘Askari neighborhood.

 

A group of Iraqi Resistance fighters destroyed one US Humvee that was carrying three US Marines in the as-Saddah area in the southwest of al-Fallujah.  The three were killed in the attack and a Nissan pickup truck in which eight puppet “national guards” were riding was also destroyed and the eight puppet troops killed.

 

Resistance tightens its hold on al-Fallujah.

 

In a dispatch posted at 8:55pm Mecca time Wednesday night, the Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent in al-Fallujah reported that Resistance fighters had since yesterday taken control of the road to al-Habbaniyah that extends west from the al-Fallujah bridge at the western end of the city.  The correspondent wrote that US forces making the drive from the city to al-Habbaniyah are now subjected to Resistance bombardment, a fact that has compelled the Americans retreating from the city to take small branch routes and paths through farm fields in their effort to get the US military vehicles out of the city and back to their al-Habbaniyah base.

 

This has not proven entirely successful either, for the Americans, as the Resistance had planted mines and bombs along those paths.  Resistance fighters destroyed four Abrams tanks, three Bradley armored vehicles, and three Humvees as US forces tried to evacuate them to the base.  These are merely the numbers of vehicles destroyed that the Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent was able to ascertain.  Others might well have also been blown up.

 

At the present time, the correspondent wrote, there is no American presence in the west of al-Fallujah, nor in the southwest of al-Fallujah in the as-Saddah area.

 

US completes its flight from ‘Amiriyat al-Fallujah.

 

At about 7am Wednesday, US forces completed their withdrawal from ‘Amiriyat al-Fallujah, which they had begun at 10pm Tuesday night.  Their pull out came after Resistance forces inflicted heavy losses on them and their British and Iraqi puppet stooges.  ‘Amiriyat al-Fallujah lies some 10km east of the city of al-Fallujah and was a staging area for Resistance attacks on the rear lines of US troops assaulting the city.

 

Mafkarat al-Islam’s correspondent in the city reported that US troops expected the Resistance in ‘Amiriyat al-Fallujah to stay within the city and allow the Americans to besiege and attack them.  But the Resistance, learning a lesson from al-Fallujah’s experience took the battle of ‘Amiriyat al-Fallujah to the outskirts of the town – some 10km further east, forcing the Americans to go through the town to the battle zone.

 

The correspondent reported that the US brought in 80 armored vehicles, nearly 70 Abrams tanks, and about 100 Humvees as well as 20 British tanks and 45 Nissan pickup trucks and 10 Kia trucks belonging to the puppet “national guard.”   The US troops and their allies met no Resistance as they passed through ‘Amiriyat al-Fallujah, but were surprised when extremely fierce fighting erupted in the east of the city to which they had brought about 50 tanks and armored vehicles and 50 Humvees.  The Americans were compelled to call in air support in their battle which actually began as they began to withdraw from the town.

 

The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent noted that US forces pulled out in an unorganized manner, their vehicles frequently crossing one another’s path and colliding in some cases, making it more of a headlong flight than a retreat.
