Iraqi Resistance Data Report for Sunday, 11 January 2004 through Saturday, 17 January 2004.

The following report brings together data from two opposite sources.  The first is the Hasad al-Muqawamah al-Iraqiyah (Harvest of the Iraqi Resistance) issued by the Iraqi Resistance.  The second is the Iraqi Resistance Log, compiled by the Free Palestine Information Agency, which uses media sources as well as the Summary of Security Incidents, an internal security document issued by the American occupation authorities.

Although these accounts are not mutually consistent, we hope, by publicizing them, to help overcome the information blackout imposed by the American occupation and the imperialist-Zionist media at their disposal.  We also hope to show that regardless of what sources are used for information on the Iraqi Resistance, that Resistance is clearly continuing unabated and forging ahead as it inflicts mounting casualties on the invaders.

Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member editorial board of the Free Arab Voice. Iraqi Resistance Log compiled by Free Palestine Information Agency.
