From the Editor:

Dear Friends,

I would like at this time to thank the Socialist Arab Coalition of North America for it's efforts at rejecting Normalization of Relations with the Zionist Enemy, and for its assistance towards the just goal of building Pro-Resistance Popular Forces in the US. They have a website available at .

Also, we will be working more towards converting our web based efforts into a foco point for building Pro-Resistance in the US. We are calling on your various organizations and personages to work with us towards building Pro-Resistance Events and Demonstrations in the upcoming year. We also are requesting that your esteemed organizations formalize written theortical statements against US Imperialism and Zionism and in favor of Resistance in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, and around the periphery. This is an important step in kicking Pro-US sentiment and Zionism out of all of our movements, particularly the Anti-War Movement. While we favor unity, our unity can only exist within principled parameters. We are on the side of Arab/Islamic Resistance, and we call on our collegues to take up such a non-negotiable banner as part of their efforts towards social justice.

We will still include news and views. Those who have been submitting articles to us, should continue to do so.


Iraqi Resistance Report:

Updated News Reports Compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr , from the Editorial Board of the Free Arab Voice.

Sunday, 25 January 2004.

Amidst what appears to be a battle between the Resistance and

occupation forces in the area of Mosul, a US military occupation

helicopter crashed Sunday in the Tigris River in the city while

searching for a soldier. Both helicopter crew members were listed as

missing, a spokeswoman said. The OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter was

searching for a US occupation soldier missing when the boat he was

in "capsized" earlier Sunday, the spokeswoman said on condition of

anonymity. The soldier was on a river patrol with three other

soldiers and some Iraqi puppet policemen, she said. The other three

soldiers were safe but two Iraqi puppet police officers and an Iraqi

translator are reported dead, said the spokeswoman. She did not say

what caused the crash of the helicopter, attached to the 101st

Airborne Division.

A later statement by the occupation forces and Iraqi puppet police

claimed that the helicopter went down after striking an electric

pole. Local witnesses told al-Jazeera that the helicopter plunged

into the Tigris River.

At least one indication that the Iraqi Resistance was active in the

area was a report by a Reuters photographer, mentioned in the

Jordanian daily al-Arab al-Yawm for Monday, 26 January. According to

the newspaper, the Reuters photographer said that one Iraqi puppet

policeman had been killed as a result of a shot to the head from a

speeding car while he was taking part in the search for the missing

American who had been on the river patrol.

A US occupation soldier died Sunday of wounds suffered in a grenade

attack on his Bradley vehicle that was patrolling a central Iraqi

town of Bayji, 200km north of Baghdad, the day before, said Major

Josslyn Aberle, a spokeswoman for the 4th Infantry Division.

Resistance fighters fired the rocket propelled grenade at the Bradley

in the town of Bayji, north of Tikrit, late Saturday, piercing the

driver's compartment and critically wounding the soldier. The soldier

was evacuated to a military hospital, where he died.

A second Bradley fighting vehicle returned fire toward the area from

where the grenade was launched, and soldiers later captured six men

who were in the possession of a grenade launcher, Aberle said.

A roadside bomb detonated in the center of Baghdad on Sunday morning

as two American Humvees were passing, but no injuries were reported.

A US military occupation spokesman said that the bomb, concealed in a

mound of garbage, detonated as the vehicles passed but caused no

casualties. Local resident 'Aql Abu Zahrah said that he was walking

by the area at the time and that the bomb went off after the second

US vehicle had passed. Sajidah Nu'man said she saw four men around

the mound of garbage before the American vehicles went by.

After the blast, American troops searched through the garbage looking

for other possible explosive devices.

An Iraqi officer in the puppet police was killed and a number of

other puppet policemen wounded when a bomb exploded on the Kirkuk –

Dibs road.

An Iraqi driver was shot to death by US occupation forces when he

tried to pass an American military convoy in Kirkuk.

In Mosul a security official in the Mosul Province puppet council

survived an assassination attempt – the third such attempt in a week.

An official in the collaborationist Kurdish chauvinist party the so-

called Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which is led by Jalal

Talibani, said that one of their organization's offices came under

rocket attack on Saturday night but that the missile missed its

target and hit a neighboring house but caused no casualties.

Sunday, US invaders arrested 46 people and confiscated weapons in

several raids in Iraq, after a series of bombings that killed six US

occupation troops. Occupation soldiers raided several locations in

Baaquba, 60km northeast of the capital, and captured 46 people

including three men suspected of involvement in Resistance

activities, Aberle said. The remaining 43 were detained for

possessing weapons without authorization, she said. In Mukayshifah,

a town south of Tikrit, soldiers raided a house Saturday and

confiscated 220 hand grenades, Aberle said.

Al-Jazeera television announced that the US occupation forces in Iraq

have released al-Jazeera cameraman, Sahib as-Samarra'I who had been

arrested last November. A spokesman for the popular Qatar-based

satellite television company stated that as-Samarra'i was released

from Abu Ghurayb prison west of Baghdad after the occupation

authorities found nothing to hold against him.

As-Samarra'i was arrested and his camera and film cassettes

confiscated on 18 November 2003 as he was filming events in the Iraqi

city of Samarra'. During the more than two months in which he was in

prison, as-Samarra'i was never charged with any offense.

Monday, 26 January 2004.

The Lebanese satellite TV channel LBC reported on Monday that the

American proconsul in Iraqi, L. Paul Bremer survived an assassination

attempt that was made against his motorcade in al-'Amiriyyah district

in Baghdad. Informed sources said that a sniper struck one of the

wheels of a car in the motorcade, causing it to flip over and kill or

injure those inside. It is evident that Bremer was riding in a

different car at the time, as the motorcade sped away from the scene

of the Resistance attack.

This is the second reported attempt on the life of the American

governor of occupied Iraq, the first having been a Resistance attack

on the road from Baghdad to Saddam International Airport which took

place as Bremer returned from seeing off the US Defense Secretary,

Donald Rumsfeld.

Al-Jazeera reported that six Iraqi puppet policemen were killed and

others wounded in two separate rocket and machine gun attacks on two

puppet police locations. Four of those Iraqi puppet policemen were

apparently killed when Iraqi Resistance fighters opened fire on the

al-Jazirah station north of the city of ar-Ramadi, an incident

reported earlier by the chief of the station Major Ahmad Muhammad ad-

Dulaymi. The other dead and wounded puppet policemen apparently fell

at a check point set up by the puppet police at the eastern approach

to ar-Ramadi.

An official in the puppet police directorate for the province of

Mosul said on Monday that one Iraqi puppet policeman had been killed

on Sunday night when Iraqi Resistance fighters opened fire on him.

The fighters escaped.

Al-Jazeera TV reported that two Iraqi puppet policemen were killed

and three others wounded, two of them severely, on Monday evening

when Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked a puppet police check point

at the entrance to al-Fares residential compound near 'Amiriyat al-


Al-Jazeera also reported on the authority of eyewitnesses said that

Iraqi Resistance fighters opened fire on members of the puppet police

in al-Basrah and then escaped.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent also reports from an-Najaf that the local

headquarters of the American occupation forces and also the

headquarters of the so-called multinational forces serving the US

occupiers came under two separate rocket attacks. Fires could be

seen burning in the multinational headquarters where troops from

Spain and El Salvador are centered.

Spanish occupation forces immediately launched a campaign of raids

and searches of the buildings and homes adjacent to their

headquarters. The Spanish occupation troops prevented ambulances and

fire trucks belonging to the puppet so-called Iraqi civil defense

forces in an-Najaf from getting into the area of the two attacks.

Initial reports provided no information as to the extent of

occupation forces losses in casualties or destruction.

The Japanese Defense Ministry announced in Tokyo on Monday that a

truck carrying supplies for the Japanese occupation troops serving

the Americans in Iraq had been attacked near Baghdad, killing the

Jordanian driver of the vehicle. That attack came just hours before

the Japanese government ordered 600 of its infantry to Iraq in the

first ground deployment of Japanese military forces in a battle zone

since the defeat of the Japanese militarist aggressors in 1945.

A Japanese spokesman said that the attack on the supply truck

occurred in ar-Ramadi west of Baghdad as the vehicle was transporting

a prefabricated building intended to house a Japanese occupation

officer who will be taking up work in Baghdad. The Japanese official

said "it is not clear that the attack was aimed specifically at Japan

since the truck and its cargo carried no sign indicating that they

were Japanese."

An officer in the puppet so-called civil defense forces in Iraq

reported that two Iraqis who had been in a minibus were killed and

two others injured seriously on Monday when a bomb went of in the

southern part of Baghadad. The officer, Mustafa Tareq, told Agence

France Presse (AFP) that "a passenger in a south Korean-made Kia

minibus asked to get off in a certain point on the road and as it

pulled over, the bus struck a mine which exploded. The disembarking

passenger and one other were killed, while the minibus driver and

another passenger were wounded." Tareq added that the bomb was

apparently planted in the road with the intention of detonating as an

American convoy passed the spot, since the US occupation troops are

constantly using this road which leads to the puppet police station

located a mere 200 meters from the site of the explosion.

Witness 'Isam Khudayr, his clothes covered in blood, said that

he "heard the sound of a powerful explosion that shook the whole

area." Khudayr said: "when I came out of my shop I saw the bus

overturned and on fire so my companion and I hurried over there to

save the people inside. One of them was already dead with his limbs

blown off. Another had severe head wounds, and he died on the way to

al-Yarmuk hospital. Two others had various injuries and were taken

to the hospital."

According to the AFP, US occupation forces and Iraqi puppet police

cordoned off the street leading to where the explosion took place.

One of them shouted through a loudspeaker from an American jeep to

the crowd who had gathered at the bomb scene to disperse or else they

would be arrested. Nevertheless, many local people, in particular

unemployed youths remained at the site watching what was taking place

and watching curiously the activities of the American occupation

soldiers and the members of the puppet police and puppet so-called

civil defense forces. Later three of those youths were arrested for

not paying attention to the instructions. Subsequently one of the

three was released after his mother came and implored the Americans

to release him.

A commander of the Iraqi puppet police in Kirkuk province, Lieutenant

General Shirgu Shakir Hakim told the AFP that the Iraqi puppet police

had arrested on Monday two high-ranking "former" officers in the

Iraqi intelligence service in Kirkuk and claimed that they had "large

quantities" of weapons in their possession. He said that they were

arrested on their way to Kirkuk from Tikrit. The officers, Shakir

Mahmud, an intelligence officer from Tikrit, and Muhsin 'Abdallah

from al-Bu 'Ajil on the outskirts of Tikrit. The puppet police

commander said that the American forces had released 'Abdallah just

three days previously. He claimed that when the puppet police

arrested the two on Monday they had weapons, military maps and

telephone numbers of Baath Party members and ranking intelligence

officers in the Iraqi intelligence service in their possession.

In keeping with their servile role, the puppet police handed the two

captives over to the American occupation forces four hours after

their capture, according to puppet Lieutenant General Hakim.

A correspondent for the Agence France Presse (AFP) reports that about

2,000 Iraqi pilgrims to Mecca held a demonstration on Monday on the

Iraq-Kuwait border in the area of Safwan, to protest the fact that

Kuwaiti busses which were supposed to pick them up from the border

and take them to Kuwait airport for a flight to Saudi Arabia where

they would take part in the Hajj pilgrimage had not arrived.

The angry demonstrators assembled two kilometers from the Kuwaiti

border on the expressway linking the two states near the camp that

the pilgrims had built and where they have been staying for six days

waiting for the busses.

Haytham 'Isa, Chairman of the al-Basrah Branch of the Iraqi Red

Crescent Society said "all of those pilgrims have original entry

visas from both Kuwait and Saudi Arabia but they have been stuck at

the border for six days because the busses that were supposed to take

them to Kuwait airport for a flight to Saudi Arabia have not come."

He said, "the deputy [puppet] governor of al-Basrah, Brigadier

General 'Ali Shani, came to visit us today and reviewed our situation

and then headed to the border to discuss the problem with Kuwaiti

officials and the possibility of finding a solution."

Demonstrator Karim Hadi (45 years old) from al-Hillah said

that "people appear on Iraqi TV and claim that there are no problems

regarding the Iraqi Hajj pilgrims, contrary to the reality which is

that we are now in our sixth day on the border and don't know what

our fate is to be."

Demonstrator Ra'id Shaker Kazem, 40, from the city of al-Kut

said "each one of us paid about US0 to cover the cost of

transportation and lodging but they have left us here for days and

there are only a few days left for us to get there in time to perform

the pilgrimage."

An official with the Saudi Ministry of Pilgrimage declared that more

than 30,000 Iraqi pilgrims have come to Saudi Arabia to perform the

Hajj rites in Mecca and another 3,000 are still expected to arrive


Al-Jazeera reported that the US occupation forces on Monday released

a new batch of Iraqi prisoners from the various concentration camps

that the invaders maintain in the occupied country. About 300

prisoners were released Mondy as a part of a US-announced program to

release 506 prisoners on condition that some local guarantor agrees

to take responsibility for their behavior, and on condition that they

pledge in writing to "renounce violence."

That figure – 506 prisoners – if they ever really are released, would

amount to less than five percent of the more than 12,000 prisoners

which the Associated Press recently reported were in the hands of US

occupation authorities in Iraq. Recently released prisoners report

that the concentration camps in which they were held are severely

overcrowded and that one main reason for the releases is simply to

relieve that congestion, as the flow of new prisoners into the camps

continues unabated.

Special Report from al-Arab al-Yawm on Iraqi prisons.

According to a report by Ahmad Sabri carried in Tuesday's edition of

the Jordanian newspaper al-Arab al-Yawm, Iraqis who have been held

prisoner by the American occupation forces have been subjected to

most brutal forms of physical and psychological torture in five large

detention camps, particularly those at Abu Ghurayb, west of Baghdad,

and Umm Qasr, near al-Basrah in the south.

Former prisoners have offered testimonials on the inhuman practices

of the occupation authorities to the newspaper al-Arab al-Yawm,

saying that the number of those imprisoned by the occupation

authorities exceeds 10,000 prisoners and that the release of some of

them early in January cam as a result of intense overcrowding of the

prisons and concentration camps, in addition to the fact that the

arrests were arbitrary and based on no evidence, and that no real

charges were ever filed against the prisoners. Most of the

prisoners, in fact, were civilian citizens arrested for "suspicion" –

something that pertains to every Iraqi in the eyes of the occupation


In their testimonies, the former prisoners disclosed having seen a

number of former Iraqi officials arrested and fettered and held in

solitary confinement cells without any consideration for their health

or the conditions of their confinement in the cases of many of these


The following is a translation of the story written by Ahmad Sabri,

Baghdad correspondent for al-Arab al-Yawm and published in that

newspaper's edition for Tuesday, 27 January 2004.

Baghdad – al-Arab al-Yawm – by Ahmad Sabri. Iraqi prisoners released

by the American occupation forces recently are describing what they

were subjected to during the periods of their detention and how and

where they were arrested. In talks with al-Arab al-Yawm they have

disclosed that Abu Ghurayb central prison camp, in which thousands of

Iraqis are being held, was subjected on several occasions to mortar

attacks resulting in the death of dozens of the prisoners and the

American forces charged with controlling the prison camp.

Prisoner 'Ali Mahmud, who spent about five months in five different

prison camps in various parts of Iraq before winding up in Abu

Ghurayb, said that the charge against him was not based on any

evidence but was merely slander. Yet the way he was captured was

outrageous. "They raided my home in al-Karakh district late at

night, provocatively wrecking our household goods. They stole five

million dinars from my house and arrested three of my sons."

Mahmud said that the investigators used psychological torture on him

throughout long hours of interrogation sessions during which his

hands and feet were bound in iron chains.

Mahmud, who is known as 'Ali Mama, did not claim that he was beaten

but said that some of the investigators used threats and intimidation

regarding what would happen to him if he did not confess to his

connections with Saddam and wit the so-called Army of Muhammad,

connections with which he denied. Because he denied any connection

with the Resistance, Mahmud says he was stripped naked and confined

to an empty cell.

Mahmud described how during his imprisonment there he was subjected

to a harsh form of punishment in which the jailers would pour water

on his naked body, bringing on sickness. "I got terrible diarrhea

and have fainting spells which I am now seeing a doctor about."

Mahmud described the food as "poor", saying that it is insufficient

for the prisoners. He said that an Iraqi contractor prepares the

food, which he said was spoiled.

'Ali Mahmud said that during his time of incarceration there, Abu

Ghurayb prison camp was on several times subjected to mortar attacks

which left dozens of prisoners and some American occupation soldiers

dead. He said that tents pitched on the dirt are "home" to most of

the prisoners in the prison camps of ar-Ridwaniyah, Abu al-Khasib, al-

Baghdadi, and parts of Abu Ghurayb prison camp.

Mahmud estimated the number of Iraqi prisoners in the camps that he

spent time in during his five months of detention as being more than

10,000 prisoners. He said that the reason for the release of

prisoners is that the prisons have filled up and are seriously


Asked whether he had seen Iraqi officials during his time of

imprisonment he answered: "Yes, I saw Iraqi officials. They were in

miserable conditions. They have no care, and were badly treated.

Among them was Saadun Hammadi, Speaker of the Iraqi National

Assembly; Minister of Trade Muhammad Mahdi Salih; and Samir an-Najm;

and high-ranking Iraqi Army officers."

Mahmud noted that the American forces had not allowed him any contact

with his family nor was he allowed to send any letters or receive any

visits from officials of the Red Cross Organization.

Another prisoner released in the first batch of prison releases a few

weeks back hails from the city of al-Fallujah. I met Hamed 'Abdallah

in front of Abu Ghurayb prison camp. He told me "the charge against

me was possession of unlicensed weapons and that I aided the

Resistance fighters. I denied this totally. I explained that I am a

student in my last stages of study and that the American forces' raid

on my home came as a total surprise."

"They took me to Abu Ghurayb prison," Hamed 'Abdallah

explained, "where I spent most of the three months that I spent


Hamed 'Abdallah said that the conditions in prison were "bad",

causing him to break his leg and suffer serious pains in his spinal

cord as a result of what he said was the intense torture whose

severity he managed to endure.

He said that prisoners from al-Fallujah are singled out for specially

harsh and brutal treatment because the American occupation forces in

the area of the city come under Resistance attack virtually every

day. This leaves a negative impression on the al-Fallujah prisoners

who, he estimated, number in the hundreds in the American prison


Hamed 'Abdallah said that the US forces put cameras up in every part

of the prison camp to observe the prisoners and monitor their

movements and communications, as a result of which dozens of them

were isolated and tortured, in order to prevent their communicating

among themselves.

A religious leader from the city of Mosul, Ghanim Dhannun, described

the treatment he received from the American interrogators as "harsh

and inhuman." He said, "They have no respect for a man of religion

or a learned religious scholar or for a person of great age." Ghanim

Dhannun said that he spent most of his time incarcerated in the

prison at the Port of Umm Qasr in the city of al-Basrah, in the south

of Iraq. He said that he was subjected to humiliation and long

interrogation sessions that no person could stand.

As to the charges against him, Ghanim Dhannun said that most of the

prisoners are charged with cooperating with the Iraqi Resistance. He

said, however, that he was not working with the Resistance and had no

connection with any attacks on the American occupation forces.

He said that he saw dozens of Iraqi officials shackled in iron chains

and held in solitary confinement cells, but he declined to name any

of them.

He concluded by saying that the US practice of making the release of

prisoners contingent upon their pledging not to oppose the occupation

and upon getting some well-known person in their home area to agree

to be responsible for them is a dangerous precedent that is not

justified by law or the principles of human rights.

Student Haytham 'Abdallah, who spent months in Abu Ghurayb prison

camp described the conditions of his imprisonment and those of the

others in the camp as "tragic, unbearable, and in violation of all

humanitarian provisions."

He said: "My case basically is that I happened to be passing by a

particular street in the al-Jihad neighborhood of Baghdad at a time

when an American column came under attack. I suddenly found myself

surrounded by soldiers. They asked, 'Where are the rest of your

group?'. Despite my denials and calls for help, they took me to a

jail after blindfolding me and tying my hands." He said that he was

beaten and kicked and denied food and water for two consecutive days.

He described clashes that took place between the detainees in Abu

Ghurayb prison camp and the guards. "They broke out because of the

bad treatment and because the prison authorities refused to allow any

contact between the prisoners and their families. In addition there

was the factor of prison conditions – the food, the place, and the

bad treatment."

Haytham 'Abdallah said that the prison authorities reacted harshly to

the protesters. First they opened fire into the air and then they

wounded many of them. He thought it probable that a number of the

wounded prisoners had subsequently died of their wounds.

January 2004.

Tuesday, 27 January 2004.

Al-Jazeera TV's correspondent in Baghdad has reported that during

Monday-Tuesday night massive explosions were heard in the Iraqi

capital as sirens wailed in the so-called Green Zone – compound

housing the Iraqi Republican Palace which the American occupation

forces have taken over and turned into their headquarters. Initially

there was no information regarding the nature of the explosions what,

if any, casualties and damage they might have left in their wake. It

was later reported that a rocket had landed in the so-called Green

Zone, but the occupation forces gave no information regarding losses

or damage.

Three US aggressor troops were killed and one other was wounded when

the Iraqi Resistance set off a large explosion west of Baghdad

Tuesday as a convoy, including the Humvee which took the brunt of the

blast, was passing. The troops were later specifically acknowledged

to be paratroopers belonging to the US 82nd Airborne Division.

Hospital staff said two Iraqi civilians also were killed. The US

military occupation reported the US casualties, but refused to admit

that the incident was a Resistance attack. A US military spokesman

said only that the casualties occurred in "a large explosion" but

claimed he "had no idea" what caused the blast. Earlier, however,

the occupation spokesmen had been more willing to acknowledge that

the incident was a Resistance attack. The Associated Press quoted an

occupation spokesman as saying earlier, "one of our units was

ambushed near Fallujah . . . involving two coalition vehicles."

The invader spokesman said three occupation soldiers were killed and

one solider was injured. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the

spokesman said he had no other details.

Witnesses, however, spoke of two roadside bombs in al-Khalidiyah, 50

miles west of Baghdad, and close to Fallujah town. The area is a

hotspot of Resistance activity where several attacks have taken place

against US aggressor forces. The witnesses said the first one

exploded next to a passing US occupation military convoy followed by

a second blast when reinforcements arrived.

'Abd al-Hamid Marzuq, a male nurse at a nearby hospital where the

casualties were taken, said two Iraqis were killed -- Hadi Abed

Shehab, the director of agriculture of al-Khalidiyah, and Hamd Nayef,

a taxi driver. Marzuq said that Shehab died of a gunshot wound to the

stomach. Witnesses said he was shot while standing in his office

close the blast scene, and died on way to the hospital. Nayef, who

was driving by at the time of the explosion, was injured in the head

and face, said Marzuq. He said three other people were injured. It

was likely that he and the other injured Iraqis were victims of the

indiscriminate US gunfire that followed the Resistance attack.

'Ali Muhammad, 41, a resident of al-Khalidiyah said that an explosion

went off as the American occupation convoy passed on the road to al-

Khalidiyah, damaging a Humvee and wounding three occupation troops.

He said, "the convoy stopped, the soldiers got out of the vehicles

and began firing killing an Iraqi and wounding another."

Namir Muhammad, who said he was standing about 500 meters away when

the attack occurred, reported that the American occupation soldiers

fired randomly after the blasts, a standard response of the US

occupation troops whenever they come under attack.

Muhammad described seeing a US military occupation vehicle on fire

after the first blast.

As more American invader forces came to the scene, another bomb went

off, setting fire to a second vehicle, he said. Muhammad said he

carried several injured people to the hospital.

Later on Tuesday, an Iraqi Resistance roadside bomb exploded at about

8:00pm near Iskandariyah, about 25 miles south of Baghdad killed

three US occupation soldiers and wounded three others, a US military

statement said.

In addition, two employees of the US company Cable News Network

(CNN), a driver and a translator-producer, died in an Iraqi

Resistance attack south of Baghdad. They were returning from an

assignment in a two-car convoy, CNN reported, when their convoy came

under Resistance gunfire. CNN identified the men as translator-

producer Duraid 'Isa Muhammad and driver Yaser al-Khatib. CNN said

cameraman Scott McWhinnie, in the second car, was grazed in the head

by a bullet. Correspondent Michael Holmes and several other people in

that car were unhurt.

When the attack occurred, the two CNN vehicles were heading north

towards the suburb of al-Mahmudiyah outside Baghdad. A colored Opal

began to follow the CNN convoy and one of the occupants of the Opal

opened fire with an automatic rifle at the back of the first car in

the CNN convoy. Five shots hit the vehicle, but it was able to

escape after the security officer in the convoy returned fire at the


A source in the puppet police in the region of Hadithah told Agence

France Presse (AFP) that two Iraqis were killed and a third wounded

in a Resistance attack on the Hadithah puppet police station which

the officials say was an attempt to free one of the prisoners held

there. Puppet police officer Sarmad La'iq of Hadithah said

that "after noon on Tuesday a group of four armed men attacked the

puppet police station of Hadithah region with the aim of forcibly

releasing a prisoner." In the course of the machinegun battle, one

attacker, by the name of 'Awwad Ibrahim, died and one other was

wounded, while puppet policeman Falah Hasan Harrat, son of Hadithah

police chief Lieutenant Colonel Hasan Harrat was also killed. Sarmad

La'iq went on to say that "the American [occupation] forces arrived

on the scene after the incident and sealed off the site and

surrounding areas and began to investigate the incident as US

occupation helicopters could be seen hovering near the puppet police


US occupation troops killed three people whom they described as

suspected members of a Resistance guerrilla cell during raids Tuesday

in the central Iraqi town of Bayji, the occupation Army said.

The US occupation forces announced that they had discovered what they

called "a suspected car bomb" near the central offices of the

occupation and its puppet so-called Interim Governing Council.

In Kirkuk Colonel Anwar 'Abd al-Qader, head of the puppet police in

the Dumiz neighborhood of the city, told AFP that US occupation

forces arrested more than 11 Iraqis in the city, suspecting them of

being behind Resistance attacks on the occupation forces, their

puppet police stooges, and oil facilities. 'Abd al-Qader said that

the US occupation forces sealed off the Dumiz residential

neighborhood in the eastern part of Kirkuk and arrested 11

Iraqis. 'Abd al-Qader said that in their arrests, the

invaders "relied on lists of names that they had, names of those

persons whom they suspect of supporting operations targeting Iraqi

[puppet] police patrols, the security of oil facilities in Kirkuk,

and the American occupation forces who have been subjected to a

series of attacks in recent days, particularly at their main

headquarters at the Kirkuk airport."

'Abd al-Qader said that the "raids and searches covered most parts of

the residential neighborhood. The roads in and out were cut. No one

was allowed in or out of the neighborhood until the operation was

Wednesday, 28 January 2004.

A martyrdom attack with an explosives laden vehicle against a hotel

in central Baghdad on Wednesday killed five Iraqis in addition to the

martyrdom of the driver, according to updated reports from a military

occupation source.

An American military occupation spokesman said "five Iraqis were

killed in addition to the driver," and reported that the vehicle was

carrying "between 200 and 350kg of explosives."

In Wednesday's attack, an Iraqi Resistance martyrdom bomber driving a

van disguised as an ambulance blew up his vehicle Wednesday in front

of a hotel frequented by Westerners, witnesses and puppet police

said. Initially the Iraqi puppet police reported four people were

killed, but the US military occupation command at first insisted that

only the driver died. The blast at the Shahin Hotel also injured 17

people, according to hospital officials. US occupation officials said

the injured included one South African; hotel employees said

initially he had been killed.

Islammemo quoted the BBC correspondent in Baghdad as saying that he

had personally seen the body of a dead foreigner in addition to the

corpses of three Iraqi puppet policemen, contrary to US military

claims that only Iraqis were killed.

The bombing attack occurred about 6:40am after security guards opened

fire on the vehicle — a white van with Red Crescent markings — as it

maneuvered around concrete barriers in the street, witnesses said.

The explosion gouged a huge crater in the street, shattered the

ground floor of the three-story hotel and damaged at least three

other buildings nearby. At least 10 cars parked along the street

were severely damaged, some reduced to mounds of twisted metal. The

blast hurled remains of one car across the street, and other cars

were set afire.

Residents of the hotel include the so-called "labor minister" in the

American-run puppet "government", Sami 'Izara al-Ma'jun, who was

unhurt. "My guards came to the room and rushed me downstairs. The

hotel was burning and there was fire and smoke everywhere," al-Ma'jun

said. He said some foreigners were staying in the hotel but he

didn't know their nationalities or profession, and that he saw

injured people including one foreigner being led out of hotel during

the chaos.

The hotel is located in the Karradah neighborhood which includes

several foreign embassies — including the Swiss, Polish and Armenian —

and the main station of the security force protecting diplomatic

missions. "If you see my house, you wouldn't be able to recognize

it," said Sonya Tatyosian, who lives across the street from the

hotel. Still dressed in her pajamas, she stood weeping on the street

as she used a friend's satellite phone to call her brother in

California. "I am OK," she sobbed. "Just didn't want you to worry."

A part of the Shahin hotel's concrete front was torn away by the

blast, and the walls that remained were blackened. Several fire

trucks tried to douse the fire in the building. He said the hotel was

packed with guests at the time of the blast, and expected several


At least three burned out cars were seen in front of the Shahin

hotel, only their metal skeletons remaining. Another car was half

burned a little distance away on the Masbah street in the upscale

Karradah district. What looked like pieces of flesh lay on the ground

in front of the hotel. Karradah puppet police chief Kazem Khalas

initially said three people were killed and four injured in the

blast, which occurred at about 6:30 a.m.

A spokesman at the US occupation command in Baghdad, however, said

one Iraqi was killed and several injured. The spokesman, speaking on

condition of anonymity, declined to speculate why the hotel was

targeted, but confirmed it was a car bomb.

Parts of the hotel's concrete walls were torn away, leaving gaping

holes and destroying the interior. The walls that remained were

blackened. Two other buildings nearby were badly damaged, one

housing puppet policemen assigned to protect embassies in the area,

and the other a company that sells fire extinguishers. It was not

known if any puppet policemen were injured although white smoke was

wafting out of the puppet police building three hours after the blast.

"Everything in our office is destroyed. Nothing is in one piece. Only

the concrete is still standing," said Ma'in Muhammad, a partner in

the fire extinguisher company who was sleeping in the building and

was woken up by the blast.

Khalas, the puppet police official, said one of the destroyed cars

was rigged with explosives, but didn't know if it was parked or

moving at the time of the blast.

"We were woken up by a very strong explosion. The glass fell on us.

My wife cut a leg," said Ahmad Hilli, who lives in a street parallel

to the hotel. The hotel is close to the former US embassy, the

Belarus embassy and a puppet police station.

In other news on Wednesday, in al-Khaws Province 75km south of

Kirkuk, Iraqi Resistance fighters opened fire on a puppet police

check point killing one puppet policeman. Eye witnesses said that

the attackers fired from a car moving at high speed during the attack.

Puppet police in Kirkuk report that they were able to disarm two

Katyusha rockets that had been targeted on the US occupation

headquarters in the city and were ready for launch. The Qatari news

agency Qana reported that a member of a puppet police patrol in

Kirkuk said that the two rockets were set up in an area of the al-

'Urubah neighborhood in the south of Kirkuk and were targeted on the

airport, the location being used by local US occupation forces as

their headquarters in the city.

Iraqi Resistance Data Report Updates:

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.
