Al-Fallujah.

US aggressor troops began pulling out of 'Amiriyat al-Fallujah, a suburb of the city of al-Fallujah after they had invaded the residential part of that town. A delegation of the Islamic Party of Iraq, a member of the puppet so-called governing council of Iraq headed on Monday to al-Fallujah city to continue negotiations with the US invader forces with a view to reaching an agreement on a total cease fire around the city.

Eyewitnesses reported on Monday that US troops allowed the 36th Brigade of the puppet Iraqi "military" to return to their positions. US invader forces had surrounded the 36th Brigade after it refused US orders to attack the people of besieged al-Fallujah. Part of the brigade is to return to the American headquarters in al-Kazimiyah district of Baghdad. Another part of the unit is to go to the headquarters of the military college in the Iraqi capital.

US aggressors: cease fire agreement reached in al-Fallujah.

US aggressor forces announced that they have reached an agreement to reduce tension in the city of al-Fallujah. The agreement reportedly provides for joint patrols made up of Iraqi puppet police in the city. A spokesman for the occupation authorities reported that the agreement with the people of al-Fallujah also guarantees amnesty for those persons who turn over heavy weapons and provides for free access to the hospitals and for allowing the dead to be buried.

Member of the Islamic Party of Iraq, Hajim al-Hasani, told al-Jazeera TV that the agreement would enter into force on Monday, and that it includes a number of positive points, such as the pledge by the occupation forces not to attack the city on condition that heavy weapons in the city be collected. Al-Hasani noted that if any individual or group used such weapons he or they would be dealt with by the occupation forces and not by the residents of the city.

Al-Hasani added that the agreement provides for the return of fifty families every day for a period of three days - families that left al-Fallujah because of the battles. Then all families will be allowed to return as long as the cease-fire agreement continues to be observed.

The agreement also provides for opening the city to food deliveries and for the opening of the hospitals. Ambulances are to be allowed to take out the bodies of the dead and to transport the wounded for treatment. It also provides for putting the individuals who abused the bodies of American mercenaries on trial.

US aggressor troops open fire on mosque in al-Fallujah.

Units of the US military shot at a mosque in the city of al-Fallujah on Monday, claiming that Iraqi Resistance fighters were inside shooting machine guns at US aggressor troops. Al-Jazeera TV reported that the US occupation troops deployed sniper units on roofs of buildings adjacent to the mosque to observe movements of people they claim are Iraqi Resistance fighters inside the mosque. Al-Jazeera also reported US troops as saying that they shoot at windows through which they see any movement of the people they called "armed men."

US builds wall to inhibit entrance and exit from al-Fallujah.

US Marine invader troops announced on Monday that the engineers from the US Marine Corps and US Army had completed building a sand wall around the city of al-Fallujah, the purpose of which is to seal the city's entrances and exits.

A report issued at noon on Monday by the Marine invaders on their website reported that the wall is aimed at keeping weapons from getting into the besieged city. According to the website report, the wall was built in two parts on the northern and southern approaches to the city each part of the wall extends for two and a half miles. The report stated that although the wall is not high because its aim is not to prevent people on foot from getting into and out of the city, but to force everyone coming into or leaving the city to show himself on an elevated place so that the occupation forces can see him. The wall is high enough, however, to prevent cars from entering and leaving. The Marine report said that the US military engineers were shot at during the first days they were at the worksite on the wall, but that they replied to the attacks.

US military rations food to aggressor troops due to heavy Resistance attacks on supply convoys.

US aggressor military forces began rationing food supplies in Marine encampments west of Baghdad on Sunday out of fear that food stores might be exhausted as a result of increasing Iraqi Resistance attacks on US supply convoys. A US military source told Agence France Presse (AFP) on Monday in ar-Ramadi that "all the camps of the 1st Marine Division began food rationing on Sunday." He added that some camps will receive only one warm meal a day; others will get two. The General Command views a warm breakfast and warm lunch as sufficient after US supply convoys have come under heavy Resistance attacks since the start of the siege of al-Fallujah. Sergeant Dennis Ruiz, who is in charge of a military mess hall on the main US base in ar-Ramadi told AFP that they had not received any additional food supplies last week at all.

Fighting in al-Kufah.

Fighting broke out in the southern Iraqi city of al-Kufah on Monday between US invader troops and the Jaysh al-Mahdi ("Army of the Mahdi") militia of Shi'ite Religious leader Muqtada as-Sadr. Qays al-Khaz'ali, spokesman for as-Sadr, said that battles took place in al-Kufah on the east bank of the Euphrates River. The Jaysh al-Mahdi expropriated an American military jeep that had been abandoned by fleeing Americans. US invader spokesmen denied all knowledge of the fighting in al-Kufah.

The fighting coincided with a publicized move by the US aggressors to reduce its military presence in the environs of the nearby Shi'ite holy city of an-Najaf. The US announced that it was prepared to wait some time before attacking the city. Troops from the US 3rd Brigade, 2,500 in number, were expected to replace the 2,000 men of the 1st Armored Division presently on the outskirts of the city. Meanwhile negotiations are under way with the aim of averting a clash.

Tuesday, 20 April 2004.

Iraqi Resistance Shells US Base, concentration camp at Abu Ghurayb.

Iraqi Resistance forces fired 18 mortar rounds into Abu Ghurayb concentration camp near Baghdad on Tuesday, according to US Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt. US aggressor forces claim that 21 Iraqi prisoners of the US occupation were killed and more than 100 others injured. They made no report on US casualties in the attack.

Al-Jazeera TV however reported that eye witnesses told a different story of the attack. The Arab TV station quoted people who were near the concentration camp when the mortar rounds slammed in. They reported that indeed most of the shells landed in the prison camp area, but there were at least two shells that struck the main gate overlooking the highway linking Baghdad with al-Fallujah. According to the eyewitnesses, those two shells left many American troops dead and wounded. They had been at the gate on guard duty. The witnesses said that usually there are between eight and 13 American troops in the observation center or guard gate supervising all who enter and leave the compound.

Al-Jazeera noted that mortar barrages on Abu Ghurayb are neither new nor unusual. They are, rather an almost routine and daily event, but these attacks are seldom reported by the aggressor authorities.

US helicopter shot down near al-Fallujah.

Iraqi Resistance forces near al-Fallujah on Tuesday shot down an American helicopter. According to al-Jazeera TV, eyewitnesses reported that an American helicopter crashed in the area of 'Amiriyat al-Fallujah, about 20km from al-Fallujah city itself. No other details were immediately available.

US aggressor raids on Iraqi patriots.

The American Defense Department has stated that the US Marine invaders have carried out a series of attacks on the Iraqis suspected of giving aid to the Iraqi Resistance in the area of besieged al-Fallujah. The US attacks reportedly involved individuals or a network that extends from the Syrian Frontier to towns near al-Fallujah.

Al-Fallujah cease fire.

The raids by the US aggressors come after an agreement on a cease fire was reached between the American invaders and representatives of the city providing for joint patrols, the surrender of heavy weapons, and the return of thousands of families to the city starting Tuesday.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent in al-Fallujah reports that no Iraqi family had returned to the city up to the time of writing his report (posted at 14:11 Mecca Time; 11:11 GMT on the internet, 20 April 2004) since the agreement went into force. The correspondent writes that the US forces east of the city had told members of returning families that they had not received any orders allowing the families to return.

Later in the day, however, some families were allowed to return home. Reportedly 50 families were allowed to return as per the agreement and 150 others were turned away by the US aggressor forces who told them to go away and come back on Wednesday.

By midday 200 local puppet policemen had reportedly returned to their jobs. US troops searched the puppet policemen as they entered the besieged city to return to their posts under the cease fire agreement.

Meanwhile Fu'ad ar-Rawi, member of the Political Bureau of the Iraqi Islamic Party, expressed optimism that the Iraqi Resistance fighters would observe the cease fire for the sake of allowing things to return to the way they were in the city, where battles have raged incessantly for days.

Before dawn Tuesday, Iraqi Resistance fighters opened fire on a Marine invader patrol near the Euphrates River, aggressor Captain Jamie Edge said. Marine invaders and Resistance fighters exchanged fire for about five minutes, he added, with no immediate reports of casualties.

Clashes also erupted in al-Kufah, a twon near an-Najaf, between the US invaders and Jaysh al-Mahdi men.

Puppet police chief fired by US occupation in al-Kut.

In the southern city of al-Kut a source in the occupation forces reported that the puppet police chief and his deputy in that city had been dismissed from their posts by their bosses, the Americans.

Resistance attacks US Marine invaders in al-Fallujah.

On Wednesday, the cease fire agreement between al-Fallujah leaders and

American aggressor troops besieging the city ran into serious trouble.

A heavy battle erupted on the north side of the city where up to 40 Resistance

fighters attacked US Marine invader positions, according to American

spokesmen. During the four-hour battle US Cobra helicopter gunships

attacked Resistance fighters with their Gatling guns from the air.

Witnesses saw American tanks moving into the al-Jawlan neighborhood

from which the Marine aggressors said the attack had been launched.

The US spokesmen claimed that nine Iraqi Resistance fighters were martyred

in the fighting and that three Marines were wounded. Other Marines claimed

to have killed 36 Resistance fighters.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent in al-Fallujah reported that the battles took place in al-Jawlan neighborhood and that the Resistance compelled the Americans to retreat after failing in their attempt to penetrate into the neighborhood. Al-Jazeera noted that the fighting took place just hours after US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had stated that the cease-fire in al-Fallujah would "not last forever."

Mafkarat al-Islam's correspondent in the city reported that the battle began when the US aggressor troops began shelling al-Jawlan neighborhood early Wednesday morning. The barrage was an American attempt to soften up the Resistance defenses prior to an attempted breakthrough by means of landing troops from helicopters.

The correspondent wrote that the US forces attempted to land troops in the neighborhood twice. Both times the landing operations were attempted under intense covering fire from US tank and armored vehicle gunfire. But the Resistance repulsed both these attempts inflicting heavy losses on the American aggressors.

The Resistance also succeeded in shooting down two American helicopters during the aggressors' attempts to land troops. Resistance fighters also destroyed two American tanks and three armored vehicles as well as an undetermined number of Humvees.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the only success the Americans had with their landing operations was when they managed to deploy five troops on the ground, according to the report filed by Mafkarat al-Islam's correspondent that was posted at 1:10am, Mecca Time on 22 April 2004.

The al-Jazeera correspondent also disputed the US claims to have killed nine Resistance fighters. He said that he had gone all around the al-Jawlan neighborhood area, scene of the battle, and around the city hospitals there were no signs of any dead or wounded being brought in to any hospitals or medical centers.

Mafkarat al-Islam's correspondent in al-Fallujah reported that an official in al-Fallujah Hospital said that American clames to have killed a number of Resistance fighters in al-Fallujah over the previous two days was a lie. The official said that since Tuesday only three wounded people had been admitted to the hospital, and all of them were treated and released.

After the early morning battle the city returned for a time to the relative calm it had exhibited in recent days, but there were renewed reports of fighting by late afternoon. Resistance forces reportedly fired machine guns, mortars and grenades at the US aggressors. A spokesman for the US Marines admitted that there had been American casualties but declined to give any further details.

Resistance attacks US column in as-Saqlawiyah near al-Fallujah.

Mafkarat al-Islam's correspondent in al-Fallujah reports that an American column was attacked on Wednesday by Iraqi Resistance fighters in as-Saqlawiyah, near al-Fallujah. The correspondent had no information on casualties or damage that the Resistance attack might have caused.

Cease fire problems.

As of noon on Wednesday, no heavy weapons had been turned in. As a part of the cease fire agreement, the US invaders demanded that the Resistance hand over heavy weapons taken from the stocks of the puppet police force. The American government has a reputation for using diplomacy to disarm its enemies before perfidiously attacking them.

The Marines, for their part failed to honor the cease-fire provision allowing 50 Iraqi families back into al-Fallujah on Wednesday.

Iraqi Resistance clears al-Fallujah of US snipers.

Mafkarat al-Islam's correspondent in al-Fallujah reports that the Iraqi Resistance in the besieged city succeeded in forcing American snipers to abandon most of the positions they had occupied in various parts of the city. The correspondent reports that the American sharpshooters had disappeared from the neighborhoods of ash-Shurtah, al-Mu'allimin, al-Jumhuriyah, and the market.

The American snipers represented the strongest and most dangerous American troops confronted by the Iraqi Resistance in the city. They had the active support of the Kurdish chauvinist Peshmergah militiamen.

Al-Fallujah refugees demonstrate in Baghdad for right to return home.

Residents of al-Fallujah held a demonstration in al-Mansur neighborhood in Baghdad on Wednesday to call on US aggressor forces to stop violating the cease-fire and to allow them to return to the city. The demonstrators said that the American forces were only allowing a small number of people back in their native city. Protesters held up signs demanding that the American occupation forces leave Iraq and praising the steadfastness and heroism of the defiant people of al-Fallujah.

Al-Fallujah Sunni 'Ulama' to Resistance fighters: Don't lay down arms!

Sunni 'Ulama' from al-Fallujah meeting in Baghdad on Wednesday issued an appeal to the Resistance calling on them to avenge the aggression against Iraq and not to lay down arms. Shaykh Hamid al-Ma'didi, one of al-Fallujah's 'Ulama' said, "the Mujahideen are just not going to lay down their arms or take part in joint patrols with the Americans." He added, "We will fight to the end! The Americans say they will trample the Iraqis, and we reply that we will be the ones to pulverize them."

US aggressors threaten to blow up mosques in al-Fallujah.

US aggressor forces threatened the people of al-Fallujah that they would blow up the city's mosques if they came under Resistance attack. The American Los Angeles Times reported that the US invaders distributed leaflets in the last two days warning them against using mosques for gatherings or for storing weapons. The leaflets also called on the people not to allow the Resistance to use mosques for Resistance or they would be destroyed. The claim that the Resistance hides in mosques is one that the US military has repeatedly made despite regular denials by witnesses and the Resistance.

Powerful explosions shake US occupation headquarters Wednesday night.

Two powerful explosions shook the Baghdad night Wednesday evening according to a report carried by al-'Arabiyah satellite TV. The blasts came from the so-called "Green Zone" - the Republican Palace area where the US occupation has its headquarters.

US helicopter shot down in Ba'qubah.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent in Ba'qubah reported eyewitnesses as saying that an American helicopter was shot down in the village of Umm al-'Izam, south of the city on Wednesday. US aggressor force immediately closed off the area and removed the wreckage of the stricken aircraft.

Rockets hit Baghdad.

Three rockets hit a residence and a car in ad-Durah neighborhood of southern Baghdad, killing one and wounding four according to witnesses quoted by the Associated Press.

Mortar shells blasted the area of the occupation headquarters in an-Nasiriyah on Wednesday. A spokesman for the Iraqi puppet police reported that the mortar barrage came at about 3:00am local time. Speaking to Agence France Presse (AFP) the spokesman claimed that the mortar shells struck no buildings and caused no casualties.

Five martyrdom bombers strike puppet police stations, police academy in al-Basrah.

Martyrdom attackers detonated simultaneous car bombs against puppet police buildings during rush hour Wednesday morning just after 7:00am in the southern Iraqi city of al-Basrah, killing 75 people, in the bloodiest attacks to hit this southern, mainly Shi'ite city since the US occupation began a year ago.

Four British aggressor troops were admitted to have been injured in the Resistance attacks on the puppet police academy in the suburb of az-Zubayr. The injuries of two of them are reported to be serious, according to the British Defence Ministry. The police academy was hit at the same time as the puppet police stations, and then an hour later another bomb struck the same police academy again.

Three puppet police stations and a puppet police academy were struck by a total of five car bombs, according to the puppet governor of al-Basrah. Officials, installed by the American occupation authorities, said that some 235 people were wounded in the attacks.

Two school vans that happened to be passing as-Su'udiyah puppet police station at the time of the attack were also destroyed, reportedly killing some children from a girls school and a kindergarten. The Iraqi Resistance has repeatedly warned Iraqis to steer clear of all occupation and stooge sites because attacks on such targets can be expected at any time.

A crater, six feet deep and nine feet wide gaped in the pavement outside as-Su'udiyah puppet police station after the blast. The fašade of the building was also badly damaged. British aggressor troops who showed up afterward at the police station were met by angry Iraqis who rightly blamed them for the disruption in the country.

Puppet security claims to have killed four Resistance fighters in Kirkuk.

Iraqi puppet security forces claimed that they killed four Resistance fighters in Kirkuk and seized three vehicles wired with explosives.

Body of kidnapped Dane found.

The body of a Danish profiteer reported kidnapped five days ago was found

on Wednesday, according to an announcement by the Danish Foreign Ministry. Romanian "security company" withdraws its mercenaries.

On Wednesday a Romanian "security company" that provides mercenaries for the

US occupation regime in Iraq and whose employees work as personal guards for

occupation officials, announced that it was pulling out of Iraq until the situation in the country "improves." The company suspended its contracts and already has withdrawn its employees. The rising Iraqi Resistance movement has already forced Spain, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic to withdraw their forces from Iraq.
