EDITORIAL CORNER



A Call For Pro-Resistance Activies and Co-ordination

www.geocities.com/iraqiresistancesolidarity

iraqiresistancesolidarity@yahoo.com

March 20th, the 1st anniversary of the current formal aggression committed against the Iraqi People by Anglo-Zionist Invaders, is just around the corner. World-wide demonstrations, marked by towering rage and anti-US solidarity, will flood the streets as the Popular Masses condemn Imperialism and the Zionist Enemy for their crimes against Humanity, and in particular their aggression against beloved Palestine and Iraq.

We call for co-ordinating world-wide events throughout the entire Weekend from Friday evening March 19th- Sunday March 21st in solidarity with anti-Occupation ARMED Resistance. If you or your organization is planning a Pro-Resistance event, we request that you notify us immediately. Also, as the Iraqi Resistance Solidarity Network is attempting to co-ordinate Pro-Resistance, it would be a pleasure for us if you would send us pictures from Pro-Resistance Demonstrations and Activities, as well as copies of any speeches, documents, etc. Also, we request that our comrades in US, Arab Patriots, Islamic Partisans, Anti-US/Anti-Imperialists, Radical Anti-"globalization" Activists, African/Black, Chicano, Indigenous Liberation Activists, Anti-Zionists,Militant Unionists, etc, use their websites and event tabling to include Pro-Resistance Resources and information for the formation and co-ordination of a Pro-Resistance Front in the US!!!





We take this time to thank the Anti-Imperialist Camp in Italy for starting the 10 euros campaign to finace the formation and maintanace of a National Liberation Front in Iraq to root out the invaders, and reject the occupation's collaborators.

1.Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Thursday, 29 January 2004

through Saturday, 31 January 2004. Translated and/or compiled by

Thursday, 29 January 2004.

One person was killed and some 13 others wounded on Thursday in two

separate attacks on two patrols by the Iraqi puppet police in

vicinity of the cities of Kirkuk and Ba`qubah.

Puppet police Major General Anwar Ahmad Amin told the Agence France

Presse (AFP) that one puppet policeman was killed and another injured

Thursday morning when Iraqi Resistance fighters fired a rocket-

propelled grenade (RPG) at a puppet police checkpoint in the village

of al-Muradiayah, 83km south of Kirkuk

A roadside bomb exploded on Thursday in Ba`qubah, 65km north of

Baghdad, reportedly wounding 11 Iraqis, including at least eight

members of the puppet so-called civil defense forces set up and run

by the US occupation. The injuries of two persons were described as

serious. The explosion was apparently detonated by remote control

and was targeted at an Iraqi puppet police patrol that was passing at

the time. Captain Salar Husayn of the puppet so-called civil defense

forces said that eight members of the collaborationist organization

were wounded in the blast along with two persons who, he said, were

civilians. One of the injured, puppet civil defense force member

Yunus `Ali, said the bomb was placed in an abandoned cart. "When we

got closer to the cart, the explosion took place," he said.

In al-Basrah a spokesman for the British occupation forces who

control the city said that a bomb exploded by the side of a road as a

convoy of local puppet officials was passing by. Three people whom

the spokesman claimed were "passers by" were injured in the blast.

After the explosion in the village south of Kirkuk, puppet police

Major General Shayrgo Shakir announced that the puppet so-called

civil defense forces had raided several villages in the area and had

arrested five people whom he described as "suspects."

Friday, 30 January 2004.

Friday evening media sources in the Iraqi capital reported powerful

explosions shook various parts of the city. Initial reports brought

no details about the source of the blasts or the damage or casualties

they might have inflicted, according to television reports from al-

Jazeera satellite TV. A Reuters dispatch said that a roadside bomb

had gone off in the center of Baghdad and that US occupation forces

had cordoned off the area and later left. Reuters said that an

American spokesman had no further details and therefore Reuters

offered no further information either.

Shortly before those powerful explosions, at about 8:30pm local time

(17:30 GMT) Iraqi Resistance fighters fired two rocket-propelled

grenades at the Dutch Embassy in Iraq late on Friday, hitting the

roof with one and setting it on fire. The blaze was quickly

extinguished, and there were no injuries. Security guards and US

occupation soldiers said the projectile detonated on the roof after

the embassy had closed for the day. Another missed the building, and

two other launchers were found in the garden behind the embassy,

guards said.

Guards fired at the Resistance fighters' vehicle but they escaped,

according to embassy guard Karim az-Zubaydi. Dutch Foreign Ministry

spokeswoman Martine de Haan said there were no injuries.

The blast resounded through Baghdad, and a US quick reaction force

from the 1st Armored Division was sent to the scene, the US

occupation command said. Earlier reports said the projectile was a

rocket, but the military said later it was a rocket-propelled grenade.

"We saw the light of the fire on the roof, and the firefighters came

to the scene and put out the fire on the roof," said 18-year-old Fadi

Ghassan, who lives near the embassy. He said he heard two explosions.

The Netherlands has about 1,100 occupation troops in Iraq. The Dutch

Embassy staff were pulled out of Baghdad before the invasion of Iraq

in March, but they returned in August. In October the government

again withdrew most of the staff after an attack on the United

Nations' Baghdad headquarters and other bombings. The embassy is now

conducting most of its business out of Amman, Jordan. Only five

Dutch employees are manning the embassy. Four were in Baghdad Friday,

but none was in the building at the time of the attack, the Dutch

foreign ministry said.

Earlier on Friday, Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked a column of

four US occupation armored vehicles in the city of Mosul, northern

Iraq Friday morning. The Resistance fighters used rocket-propelled

grenades (RPGs) in their attack, which destroyed one of the

vehicles. It is unknown whether there were any casualties among the

American troops. Eye witnesses reported that they saw a Volkswagen

car speeding away from the site of the attack at the time the US

column was passing by.

Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked a checkpoint of the puppet so-

called civil defense forces near Kirkuk on Friday. Puppet "civil

defense" Major General Anwar Hama Amin, the commander of the American

appointed organization, told the Agence France Presse (AFP) that one

of the Resistance fighters was martyred in the attack and another

wounded in the assault. Amin said "six individuals on a pickup truck

attacked a civil defense checkpoint in Sulayman Bak. The members of

the force returned fire hitting one and wounding another. The other

attackers were able to escape."

This was the second attack at a check point in the Kirkuk area in two

days, the day before having witnessed an attack on a check point 90km

south of Kirkuk.

Also in Kirkuk on Friday, US occupation forces defused an explosives-

laden car on the main road south of al-Huwayjah, 50km southwest of

Kirkuk, frequented by American military convoys and oil tank trucks.

The tank trucks make the run up the road taking oil from the Kirkuk

oil fields to the refinery in Bayji.

Iraqi Resistance fighters fired two rocket-propelled grenades at the

Dutch Embassy in Iraq on Friday, hitting the roof with one and

setting it on fire. The blaze was quickly extinguished, and there

were no injuries. Security guards and US occupation soldiers said the

projectile detonated on the roof after the embassy had closed for the

day. Another missed the building, and two other launchers were found

in the garden behind the embassy, guards said.

Guards fired at the Resistance fighters' vehicle but they escaped,

according to embassy guard Karim az-Zubaydi. Dutch Foreign Ministry

spokeswoman Martine de Haan said there were no injuries.

The blast resounded through Baghdad, and a US quick reaction force

from the 1st Armored Division was sent to the scene, the US

occupation command said. Earlier reports said the projectile was a

rocket, but the military said later it was a rocket-propelled grenade.

"We saw the light of the fire on the roof, and the firefighters came

to the scene and put out the fire on the roof," said 18-year-old Fadi

Ghassan, who lives near the embassy. He said he heard two explosions.

The Netherlands has about 1,100 occupation troops in Iraq. The Dutch

Embassy staff were pulled out of Baghdad before the invasion of Iraq

in March, but they returned in August. In October the government

again withdrew most of the staff after an attack on the United

Nations' Baghdad headquarters and other bombings. The embassy is now

conducting most of its business out of Amman, Jordan. Only five

Dutch employees are manning the embassy. Four were in Baghdad Friday,

but none was in the building at the time of the attack, the Dutch

foreign ministry said.

In al-Khalidiyah, 80km west of Baghdad, some 700 people rallied to

demand that the American occupation forces lift the curfew imposed on

their town and that the aggressor forces halt their house raids and

free the citizens whom they've taken prisoner. The AFP reported that

the demonstrators started their march through the streets of the town

after afternoon prayers in the Mosque of Khalid ibn al-Walid, and

rallied in front of the American military position in the area. No

clashes were reported.

`Abd ar-Rahman Ibrahim, Imam of the mosque said that the peaceful

march had been arranged because "the Americans have turned the town

into a field of operations. They fire guns at houses and have

arrested a number of women. There's a dusk-to-dawn curfew too.

Where are those who fall ill supposed to go?" The Imam said that the

Americans had imposed the curfew three days previous after three

occupation soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division were killed in a

roadside bombing.

An official in the Iraqi oil industry has reported that Resistance

fighters attacked an oil pipeline carrying crude oil from a Kirkuk

oilfield to the main refinery area in Bayji and ad-Durah on Friday

morning. The Dow Jones network quoted an official as saying that an

explosion occurred near al-Fatihah area, 240km north of Baghdad. The

source noted that the blast did not affect the refining industry,

since there is sufficient reserves, he claimed, to continue supplying

the refineries for a few days.

In ar-Ramadi, west of Baghdad, an number of shopkeepers have reported

receiving threats that said that if they did not stop working with

the Americans within 10 days they would be killed.

Meanwhile the US military commander of the so-called Central Command,

General John Abizaid, expressed the expectation that Iraqi Resistance

activities would increase as summer approaches. The American

commander linked the expected increase in Resistance to the American

plan for a show in mid-summer of a so-called "transfer of power" to

Iraqis.

US sources now admit that the US occupation of Iraq will continue at

least until 2006. But since the current regime in the occupied

country, in which US proconsul L. Paul Bremer oversees a puppet so-

called governing council, is obviously a US imperial imposition on

the country, the "transfer of power" charade is aimed at setting up

an alternative puppet government that other western powers will be

willing to recognize, thereby granting the US occupation the

legitimacy, cover, and help that it wants as it sets about remaking

the map of the Arab region. Such at any rate, is Washington's hope.

Washington's fear, as reflected in Abizaid's remarks, is that the

Iraqi Resistance will make a mockery out of US claims that any new

puppet regime "represents the will of the Iraqi people."



Special Report: (Based on an Associated Press dispatch by John J.

Lumpkin)

US occupation forces use electronic jamming techniques to deflect

bombs so they explode among Iraqis while protect their own men.

Next time you read that a roadside bomb exploded near a convoy or

patrol of the US occupation forces, but killed only Iraqi civilians

in the area, you should probably conclude that this was the effect of

technology being deliberately employed by the aggressor forces,

protecting their own men while killing off Iraqi civilians. It's a

method that the Associated Press says has been extensively used by

the Zionists.

In a story for the AP, John Lumpkin reported on 30 January 2004 that

US occupation soldiers riding in convoys in Iraq "are relying on

electronic `jammers' to help protect against the roadside bombs" but

that "sometimes" the jammers only delay the detonation of bombs, and

as a result the explosives go off after the US convoy has passed,

killing Iraqi bystanders.

The jammers work by preventing a remotely transmitted signal - say,

rigged from a cell phone - from detonating an explosive when the

bomber presses the button. Depending on the distance, power, and

design of the jammer, some might prevent the bomb from going off.

Others might instead set it off before or after the convoy passes, so

that the bomb explodes among Iraqi bystanders.

The extent to which the devices are used by the aggressor forces is

secret, but it was this technology that Lumpkin says saved Pakistan's

leader from a recent assassination attempt and it is

definitely "being used in Iraq."

General Peter J. Schoomaker, the US army's chief of staff

acknowledged their use in testimony this week before the House Armed

Services Committee, but he declined to discuss the bomb defenses in

detail. The military does not want to provide useful information to

the Iraqi Resistance. Congressman Gene Taylor, a Democrat from

Mississippi suggested that few are being used. Taylor told

Schoomaker. "The percentage of vehicles that have some form of

electronic jammer — it is minuscule, and I know it, you know it, and

the Iraq insurgents know it." But Schoomaker pointed out that

protection for the occupation troops doesn't depend on universal

use. "Every vehicle doesn't have to be equipped," he said. "You have

to have groups of vehicles that have that kind of capability, under

an umbrella."

Roadside bombs have been primary killers of US occupation troops in

Iraq. Many go off under passing convoys, killing or injuring the

occupants of one of the vehicles. But in some cases, they have gone

off only after a convoy has passed.

That can be a sign that a jammer on one of the vehicles did its job,

said James Atkinson, head of the Granite Island Group, a Gloucester,

Mass.-based security and counterespionage firm.

Anti-bomb jammers have been in use since the early 1980s, Atkinson

said. Depending on their sophistication, jammers can cost from

hundreds to millions of dollars. Most can be powered by a car

engine. Some work by transmitting on frequencies that bombers are

known to use. Guerrillas frequently rig remote-controlled detonators

out of garage door openers, car alarm remotes or cellular phones,

Atkinson said. Others, called barrage jammers, put out signals on a

wide range of frequencies, he said. These will knock cellular phones

and CB radios off the air in a given area. Both kinds can cause a

premature or late detonation of a bomb, or prevent it from going off

entirely.

"When you see a car bomb that goes off several blocks away from its

intended target, it's usually a dead giveaway it was jammed,"

Atkinson said.

Jamming devices carried in the motorcade of Pakistan's President

Pervez Musharraf delayed the detonation of a huge bomb that exploded

moments after his limousine passed over a bridge near the capital 14

December 2003, Pakistani intelligence has said.

Since then, Pakistan has imported more jamming devices for security

of VIPs, a senior government official told The Associated Press on

the condition of anonymity Thursday. He refused to give further

details, including where the devices were imported from, citing

security reasons.

In occupied Palestine, a special unit in the Zionist "Ministry of

Defense" developed jamming technology in the early 1990s and used it

extensively in southern Lebanon in the mid- to late 1990s in an

effort to neutralize roadside charges placed by the Hezb Allah

Resistance. In the end, of course, that effort proved a failure and

the Zionist forces were routed from most of southern Lebanon in May

2000.

It is unclear what defenses exist against other kinds of bombs, such

as those that rely on timers or are hard-wired to a switch. Pakistani

officials claimed their jamming devices also interrupted a timer.

Saturday, 31 January 2004.

An Iraqi Resistance bomb planted on a road exploded Saturday as a US

occupation army convoy passed by, killing three US occupation

soldiers, the US military occupation said. A military spokesman said

an improvised bomb blew up about 25 miles southwest of Kirkuk, near a

convoy of the 4th Infantry Division. The bomb was planted on the road

linking Kirkuk with Tikrit. The US military stated that they had

disarmed a second explosive device 300 meters from the main US

regional military base at the occupied Kirkuk airport.

In Mosul an Iraqi Resistance car bomb exploded Saturday outside a

puppet police station, killing 13 people and wounding more than 40,

witnesses and hospital staff said. Four of the wounded were high

ranking officers in the puppet police force. Witnesses in Mosul saw

severed limbs and decapitated bodies on the street in front of the

police station. Windows of buildings were shattered and plumes of

smoke could be seen in the area. The façade of the puppet police

station was destroyed by the powerful blast. After the explosion,

occupation forces sealed off the area and streets leading to it. The

commander of the American 101st Airborne Division arrived on the

scene as his soldiers were closing off the area.

Some witnesses, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it appeared

that a car drove through a security barricade in front of the puppet

police station before exploding outside the building.

Eye witness Muhammad `Abd al-Karim, 39, who works in a shop opposite

the puppet police station, said that an Opal car came racing into the

area. He said that the driver was able to get it through a barricade

and then he detonated his car in the huge explosion.

A part of the façade of the building was destroyed and two lower

floors totally devastated. A large concrete block that had been put

in place to guard the police station from attack was blown on top of

the martyrdom car by the force of the blast. In all five cars,

including the martyrdom vehicle, were set ablaze. Al-Jazeera

television network said the pieces of the car apparently carrying the

bomb were found 300 yards away.

Saturday was a pay day and the puppet police station was crowded with

staff at the time of the midmorning attack, said puppet police

Lieutenant Muhammad Fadil

One puppet policeman, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the

blast was so powerful that there were casualties not only on the

street but also inside the building. Among the wounded were two

puppet policemen with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, one, with the

rank of Major, and one Lieutenant, according to Dr. Najm `Abdallah

Shu`ayb, head of the Emergency Room at Mosul Hospital. Puppet police

Captain Salim Dawud confirmed Dr. Shu`ayb's information. Another

physician in the hospital, Dr. Haytham `Abdallah, said that four of

the wounded were in serious condition.

The attack occurred a day before the start of the four-day Eid al-

Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice.

A bomb in the al-Baladiyat area of Baghdad on Saturday killed at

least five people including three Palestinians and others were

wounded when the crowded and largely Palestinian neighborhood was

struck by what was apparently a mortar round. A spokesman for the

Palestinian community in the neighborhood told the World Today Radio

(Radiu al-`Alam al-an) that a mortar shell had been fired at an

apartment in a residential building, killing the three people. He

added that more than 1,300 Palestinian families live in al-Baladiyat

neighborhood. Witnesses said that at least seven wounded persons

were taken to hospital.

Late on Saturday evening Reuters said that eyewitnesses in Baghdad

were reporting a second explosion in a Baghdad neighborhood of

Baladiyat that left at least one Iraqi dead and many others injured.

It was the same area where the earlier bomb had gone off.

According to al-Jazeera TV, five Palestinians were killed in the

mortar attack and five others wounded when the first mortar shell

struck the largely Palestinian residential building. A second mortar

round landed between two buildings.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent noted the absence of any Iraqi puppet

police or US occupation troops, as well as the lack of ambulances in

the area of the blast. Al-Baladiyat neighborhood is home to many

Palestinian refugees of the 1948 occupation of Palestine. The al-

Jazeera correspondent said that bodies of those killed had been taken

to the al-Quds mosque and that they would be buried after Eid al-Adha.

The al-Jazeera correspondent said that the President of the

Palestinian National Committee in the area, Dr. Qusay Rif`at said "We

don't wan to accuse any party in particular of being behind this

attack, but we did read on the remnants of the two mortar shells the

sentence `Made in USA.'"

Also on Saturday, a bomb exploded under a senior puppet police

officer's car parked in front of his house in Baghdad. "We woke up

frightened when we heard a big explosion," said puppet police

Colonel `Adnan Radif al-`Ani, who heads a quick response field

collaborating with the occupation. He said the bomb was apparently

triggered by a timer.

"Maybe I was targeted because I am working with the Americans," he

told The Associated Press. The AP claimed that the bomb "slightly

injured" five children in the street.

Abu Ghurayb near Baghdad, site of a US-run concentration camp and

military base, came under mortar attack on Saturday. US forces

returned fire at what they said was the source of the incoming mortar

shells. Houses near the American camp were reportedly damaged.

There was no information on casualties, if any. The US forces keep

no account of Iraqi civilian casualties.

Earlier, Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked US vehicles in the Abu

Ghurayb area. As is standard practice for the American aggressors,

they responded to the attack by randomly opening fire in every

direction. Four Iraqi cars were totally destroyed in the US attack.

Meanwhile in Tazah, an area in the southern part of the city of

Kirkuk, Mahdi Muhammad, deputy chairman of the Turkoman party the

Turkoman Front in Tazah was assassinated and the chairman, Husayn

Mali, seriously injured by unknown gunmen who opened fire on their

car, according to Kirkuk's puppet police commander Major General

Turhan Yusuf. Mali was taken to hospital. The Turkoman Front, like

the Arab ethnic groups in the city, opposes the plans of powerful

Kurdish chauvinist parties (whose leaders sit on the US puppet so-

called Governing Council), to partition Iraq into a "federal state"

and to annex Kirkuk to the Kurdish statelet.

On the day of that assassination, the Iraqi puppet police had been

placed on high alert in anticipation of Resistance attacks Turhan

Yusuf also stated. He told the media that more than 5,000 of his

puppet policemen in 15 police stations in the city had been put a

condition of heightened readiness as the Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha

approached.

In Ba`qubah, the Iraqi puppet police reported that a 38-year old

Iraqi named `Abd al-Qadir Salah who was a specialist in the assembly

of electronic appliances, had been killed in a bomb explosion in his

home in the city on Friday evening. They speculate that he had been

trying to assemble a bomb at the time.

In the Haague, the Netherlands, the Dutch newspaper the NRC

Handelsblad reported that more than an hour prior to Friday's rocket

attack on the Dutch embassy in Baghdad, embassy staff were alerted

that an attack that their building was imminent. Three rocket-

propelled grenades struck the embassy on Friday evening. Having

received prior warning, however, the Dutch diplomats were able to

leave the building before the attack occurred. The unnamed Dutch

diplomat in Baghdad who was cited as the source of the story did not

state who it was that alerted the embassy staff. The Dutch Foreign

Ministry had no comment on the report.

On Saturday, the eve of the Islamic festival Eid al-Adha, US

occupation forces released a token number of 120 prisoners from the

Abu Ghurayb concentration camp near Baghdad. In all, the occupation

reportedly has some 28,000 prisoners in its vast network of prison

camps across the country.

Islamic groups in the city of al-Fallujah circulated a declaration on

Saturday outlining their plan for taking over control of Iraqi cities

after the withdrawal of US occupation forces from them. The

declaration said that the US is preparing to retreat in defeat from

the country having been vanquished by the Mujahideen.

The declaration said that the Mujahideen would take control over the

entrances and exits from liberated cities and impose a curfew for a

period of three days. Houses of stooges will be surrounded, and they

will be arrested. "Therefore we advise them to leave Iraq." It said

that "people who are true in the police, security services, and

traffic control will be allowed to continue at their jobs." It said

that "incompetents and former Baathists who had returned to their

jobs in return for becoming lackeys of the occupation will be thrown

out." The declaration threatened to reply harshly to any person who

opens fire on the Mujahideen as they deploy.

The declaration said that there would be formed a "council of the

country made up of all the scholars of Islamic law, medicine,

engineering, and civil law who have not offered their hands to the

occupation."

"This declaration is being observed and anyone who tears it up will

be found out and subjected to a harsh reckoning, however long it

takes," the document warned.

Men with their faces covered distributed the declaration which was

signed by 12 fundamentalist organizations and groups including: The

Iraqi Islamic Patriotic Resistance [al-Muqawamah al-Wataniyah al-

Islamiyah al-`Iraqiyah], the Salafi Movement for Propagation and

Jihad [al-Harakah as-Salafiyah li-d-Da`wah wa-l-Jihad], the al-

Qari`ah Organization [Tanzim al-Qari`ah], the Army of Partisans of

the Sunnah [Jaysh Ansar as-Sunnah], and the Army of Muhammad [Jaysh

Muhammad].

2.Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Thursday, 29 January 2004

through Saturday, 31 January 2004. Translated and/or compiled by

Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board, the Free Arab Voice.

Thursday, 29 January 2004.

One person was killed and some 13 others wounded on Thursday in two

separate attacks on two patrols by the Iraqi puppet police in

vicinity of the cities of Kirkuk and Ba`qubah.

Puppet police Major General Anwar Ahmad Amin told the Agence France

Presse (AFP) that one puppet policeman was killed and another injured

Thursday morning when Iraqi Resistance fighters fired a rocket-

propelled grenade (RPG) at a puppet police checkpoint in the village

of al-Muradiayah, 83km south of Kirkuk

A roadside bomb exploded on Thursday in Ba`qubah, 65km north of

Baghdad, reportedly wounding 11 Iraqis, including at least eight

members of the puppet so-called civil defense forces set up and run

by the US occupation. The injuries of two persons were described as

serious. The explosion was apparently detonated by remote control

and was targeted at an Iraqi puppet police patrol that was passing at

the time. Captain Salar Husayn of the puppet so-called civil defense

forces said that eight members of the collaborationist organization

were wounded in the blast along with two persons who, he said, were

civilians. One of the injured, puppet civil defense force member

Yunus `Ali, said the bomb was placed in an abandoned cart. "When we

got closer to the cart, the explosion took place," he said.

In al-Basrah a spokesman for the British occupation forces who

control the city said that a bomb exploded by the side of a road as a

convoy of local puppet officials was passing by. Three people whom

the spokesman claimed were "passers by" were injured in the blast.

After the explosion in the village south of Kirkuk, puppet police

Major General Shayrgo Shakir announced that the puppet so-called

civil defense forces had raided several villages in the area and had

arrested five people whom he described as "suspects."

Friday, 30 January 2004.

Friday evening media sources in the Iraqi capital reported powerful

explosions shook various parts of the city. Initial reports brought

no details about the source of the blasts or the damage or casualties

they might have inflicted, according to television reports from al-

Jazeera satellite TV. A Reuters dispatch said that a roadside bomb

had gone off in the center of Baghdad and that US occupation forces

had cordoned off the area and later left. Reuters said that an

American spokesman had no further details and therefore Reuters

offered no further information either.

Shortly before those powerful explosions, at about 8:30pm local time

(17:30 GMT) Iraqi Resistance fighters fired two rocket-propelled

grenades at the Dutch Embassy in Iraq late on Friday, hitting the

roof with one and setting it on fire. The blaze was quickly

extinguished, and there were no injuries. Security guards and US

occupation soldiers said the projectile detonated on the roof after

the embassy had closed for the day. Another missed the building, and

two other launchers were found in the garden behind the embassy,

guards said.

Guards fired at the Resistance fighters' vehicle but they escaped,

according to embassy guard Karim az-Zubaydi. Dutch Foreign Ministry

spokeswoman Martine de Haan said there were no injuries.

The blast resounded through Baghdad, and a US quick reaction force

from the 1st Armored Division was sent to the scene, the US

occupation command said. Earlier reports said the projectile was a

rocket, but the military said later it was a rocket-propelled grenade.

"We saw the light of the fire on the roof, and the firefighters came

to the scene and put out the fire on the roof," said 18-year-old Fadi

Ghassan, who lives near the embassy. He said he heard two explosions.

The Netherlands has about 1,100 occupation troops in Iraq. The Dutch

Embassy staff were pulled out of Baghdad before the invasion of Iraq

in March, but they returned in August. In October the government

again withdrew most of the staff after an attack on the United

Nations' Baghdad headquarters and other bombings. The embassy is now

conducting most of its business out of Amman, Jordan. Only five

Dutch employees are manning the embassy. Four were in Baghdad Friday,

but none was in the building at the time of the attack, the Dutch

foreign ministry said.

Earlier on Friday, Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked a column of

four US occupation armored vehicles in the city of Mosul, northern

Iraq Friday morning. The Resistance fighters used rocket-propelled

grenades (RPGs) in their attack, which destroyed one of the

vehicles. It is unknown whether there were any casualties among the

American troops. Eye witnesses reported that they saw a Volkswagen

car speeding away from the site of the attack at the time the US

column was passing by.

Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked a checkpoint of the puppet so-

called civil defense forces near Kirkuk on Friday. Puppet "civil

defense" Major General Anwar Hama Amin, the commander of the American

appointed organization, told the Agence France Presse (AFP) that one

of the Resistance fighters was martyred in the attack and another

wounded in the assault. Amin said "six individuals on a pickup truck

attacked a civil defense checkpoint in Sulayman Bak. The members of

the force returned fire hitting one and wounding another. The other

attackers were able to escape."

This was the second attack at a check point in the Kirkuk area in two

days, the day before having witnessed an attack on a check point 90km

south of Kirkuk.

Also in Kirkuk on Friday, US occupation forces defused an explosives-

laden car on the main road south of al-Huwayjah, 50km southwest of

Kirkuk, frequented by American military convoys and oil tank trucks.

The tank trucks make the run up the road taking oil from the Kirkuk

oil fields to the refinery in Bayji.

Iraqi Resistance fighters fired two rocket-propelled grenades at the

Dutch Embassy in Iraq on Friday, hitting the roof with one and

setting it on fire. The blaze was quickly extinguished, and there

were no injuries. Security guards and US occupation soldiers said the

projectile detonated on the roof after the embassy had closed for the

day. Another missed the building, and two other launchers were found

in the garden behind the embassy, guards said.

Guards fired at the Resistance fighters' vehicle but they escaped,

according to embassy guard Karim az-Zubaydi. Dutch Foreign Ministry

spokeswoman Martine de Haan said there were no injuries.

The blast resounded through Baghdad, and a US quick reaction force

from the 1st Armored Division was sent to the scene, the US

occupation command said. Earlier reports said the projectile was a

rocket, but the military said later it was a rocket-propelled grenade.

"We saw the light of the fire on the roof, and the firefighters came

to the scene and put out the fire on the roof," said 18-year-old Fadi

Ghassan, who lives near the embassy. He said he heard two explosions.

The Netherlands has about 1,100 occupation troops in Iraq. The Dutch

Embassy staff were pulled out of Baghdad before the invasion of Iraq

in March, but they returned in August. In October the government

again withdrew most of the staff after an attack on the United

Nations' Baghdad headquarters and other bombings. The embassy is now

conducting most of its business out of Amman, Jordan. Only five

Dutch employees are manning the embassy. Four were in Baghdad Friday,

but none was in the building at the time of the attack, the Dutch

foreign ministry said.

In al-Khalidiyah, 80km west of Baghdad, some 700 people rallied to

demand that the American occupation forces lift the curfew imposed on

their town and that the aggressor forces halt their house raids and

free the citizens whom they've taken prisoner. The AFP reported that

the demonstrators started their march through the streets of the town

after afternoon prayers in the Mosque of Khalid ibn al-Walid, and

rallied in front of the American military position in the area. No

clashes were reported.

`Abd ar-Rahman Ibrahim, Imam of the mosque said that the peaceful

march had been arranged because "the Americans have turned the town

into a field of operations. They fire guns at houses and have

arrested a number of women. There's a dusk-to-dawn curfew too.

Where are those who fall ill supposed to go?" The Imam said that the

Americans had imposed the curfew three days previous after three

occupation soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division were killed in a

roadside bombing.

An official in the Iraqi oil industry has reported that Resistance

fighters attacked an oil pipeline carrying crude oil from a Kirkuk

oilfield to the main refinery area in Bayji and ad-Durah on Friday

morning. The Dow Jones network quoted an official as saying that an

explosion occurred near al-Fatihah area, 240km north of Baghdad. The

source noted that the blast did not affect the refining industry,

since there is sufficient reserves, he claimed, to continue supplying

the refineries for a few days.

In ar-Ramadi, west of Baghdad, an number of shopkeepers have reported

receiving threats that said that if they did not stop working with

the Americans within 10 days they would be killed.

Meanwhile the US military commander of the so-called Central Command,

General John Abizaid, expressed the expectation that Iraqi Resistance

activities would increase as summer approaches. The American

commander linked the expected increase in Resistance to the American

plan for a show in mid-summer of a so-called "transfer of power" to

Iraqis.

US sources now admit that the US occupation of Iraq will continue at

least until 2006. But since the current regime in the occupied

country, in which US proconsul L. Paul Bremer oversees a puppet so-

called governing council, is obviously a US imperial imposition on

the country, the "transfer of power" charade is aimed at setting up

an alternative puppet government that other western powers will be

willing to recognize, thereby granting the US occupation the

legitimacy, cover, and help that it wants as it sets about remaking

the map of the Arab region. Such at any rate, is Washington's hope.

Washington's fear, as reflected in Abizaid's remarks, is that the

Iraqi Resistance will make a mockery out of US claims that any new

puppet regime "represents the will of the Iraqi people."



Special Report: (Based on an Associated Press dispatch by John J.

Lumpkin)

US occupation forces use electronic jamming techniques to deflect

bombs so they explode among Iraqis while protect their own men.

Next time you read that a roadside bomb exploded near a convoy or

patrol of the US occupation forces, but killed only Iraqi civilians

in the area, you should probably conclude that this was the effect of

technology being deliberately employed by the aggressor forces,

protecting their own men while killing off Iraqi civilians. It's a

method that the Associated Press says has been extensively used by

the Zionists.

In a story for the AP, John Lumpkin reported on 30 January 2004 that

US occupation soldiers riding in convoys in Iraq "are relying on

electronic `jammers' to help protect against the roadside bombs" but

that "sometimes" the jammers only delay the detonation of bombs, and

as a result the explosives go off after the US convoy has passed,

killing Iraqi bystanders.

The jammers work by preventing a remotely transmitted signal - say,

rigged from a cell phone - from detonating an explosive when the

bomber presses the button. Depending on the distance, power, and

design of the jammer, some might prevent the bomb from going off.

Others might instead set it off before or after the convoy passes, so

that the bomb explodes among Iraqi bystanders.

The extent to which the devices are used by the aggressor forces is

secret, but it was this technology that Lumpkin says saved Pakistan's

leader from a recent assassination attempt and it is

definitely "being used in Iraq."

General Peter J. Schoomaker, the US army's chief of staff

acknowledged their use in testimony this week before the House Armed

Services Committee, but he declined to discuss the bomb defenses in

detail. The military does not want to provide useful information to

the Iraqi Resistance. Congressman Gene Taylor, a Democrat from

Mississippi suggested that few are being used. Taylor told

Schoomaker. "The percentage of vehicles that have some form of

electronic jammer — it is minuscule, and I know it, you know it, and

the Iraq insurgents know it." But Schoomaker pointed out that

protection for the occupation troops doesn't depend on universal

use. "Every vehicle doesn't have to be equipped," he said. "You have

to have groups of vehicles that have that kind of capability, under

an umbrella."

Roadside bombs have been primary killers of US occupation troops in

Iraq. Many go off under passing convoys, killing or injuring the

occupants of one of the vehicles. But in some cases, they have gone

off only after a convoy has passed.

That can be a sign that a jammer on one of the vehicles did its job,

said James Atkinson, head of the Granite Island Group, a Gloucester,

Mass.-based security and counterespionage firm.

Anti-bomb jammers have been in use since the early 1980s, Atkinson

said. Depending on their sophistication, jammers can cost from

hundreds to millions of dollars. Most can be powered by a car

engine. Some work by transmitting on frequencies that bombers are

known to use. Guerrillas frequently rig remote-controlled detonators

out of garage door openers, car alarm remotes or cellular phones,

Atkinson said. Others, called barrage jammers, put out signals on a

wide range of frequencies, he said. These will knock cellular phones

and CB radios off the air in a given area. Both kinds can cause a

premature or late detonation of a bomb, or prevent it from going off

entirely.

"When you see a car bomb that goes off several blocks away from its

intended target, it's usually a dead giveaway it was jammed,"

Atkinson said.

Jamming devices carried in the motorcade of Pakistan's President

Pervez Musharraf delayed the detonation of a huge bomb that exploded

moments after his limousine passed over a bridge near the capital 14

December 2003, Pakistani intelligence has said.

Since then, Pakistan has imported more jamming devices for security

of VIPs, a senior government official told The Associated Press on

the condition of anonymity Thursday. He refused to give further

details, including where the devices were imported from, citing

security reasons.

In occupied Palestine, a special unit in the Zionist "Ministry of

Defense" developed jamming technology in the early 1990s and used it

extensively in southern Lebanon in the mid- to late 1990s in an

effort to neutralize roadside charges placed by the Hezb Allah

Resistance. In the end, of course, that effort proved a failure and

the Zionist forces were routed from most of southern Lebanon in May

2000.

It is unclear what defenses exist against other kinds of bombs, such

as those that rely on timers or are hard-wired to a switch. Pakistani

officials claimed their jamming devices also interrupted a timer.

Saturday, 31 January 2004.

An Iraqi Resistance bomb planted on a road exploded Saturday as a US

occupation army convoy passed by, killing three US occupation

soldiers, the US military occupation said. A military spokesman said

an improvised bomb blew up about 25 miles southwest of Kirkuk, near a

convoy of the 4th Infantry Division. The bomb was planted on the road

linking Kirkuk with Tikrit. The US military stated that they had

disarmed a second explosive device 300 meters from the main US

regional military base at the occupied Kirkuk airport.

In Mosul an Iraqi Resistance car bomb exploded Saturday outside a

puppet police station, killing 13 people and wounding more than 40,

witnesses and hospital staff said. Four of the wounded were high

ranking officers in the puppet police force. Witnesses in Mosul saw

severed limbs and decapitated bodies on the street in front of the

police station. Windows of buildings were shattered and plumes of

smoke could be seen in the area. The façade of the puppet police

station was destroyed by the powerful blast. After the explosion,

occupation forces sealed off the area and streets leading to it. The

commander of the American 101st Airborne Division arrived on the

scene as his soldiers were closing off the area.

Some witnesses, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it appeared

that a car drove through a security barricade in front of the puppet

police station before exploding outside the building.

Eye witness Muhammad `Abd al-Karim, 39, who works in a shop opposite

the puppet police station, said that an Opal car came racing into the

area. He said that the driver was able to get it through a barricade

and then he detonated his car in the huge explosion.

A part of the façade of the building was destroyed and two lower

floors totally devastated. A large concrete block that had been put

in place to guard the police station from attack was blown on top of

the martyrdom car by the force of the blast. In all five cars,

including the martyrdom vehicle, were set ablaze. Al-Jazeera

television network said the pieces of the car apparently carrying the

bomb were found 300 yards away.

Saturday was a pay day and the puppet police station was crowded with

staff at the time of the midmorning attack, said puppet police

Lieutenant Muhammad Fadil

One puppet policeman, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the

blast was so powerful that there were casualties not only on the

street but also inside the building. Among the wounded were two

puppet policemen with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, one, with the

rank of Major, and one Lieutenant, according to Dr. Najm `Abdallah

Shu`ayb, head of the Emergency Room at Mosul Hospital. Puppet police

Captain Salim Dawud confirmed Dr. Shu`ayb's information. Another

physician in the hospital, Dr. Haytham `Abdallah, said that four of

the wounded were in serious condition.

The attack occurred a day before the start of the four-day Eid al-

Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice.

A bomb in the al-Baladiyat area of Baghdad on Saturday killed at

least five people including three Palestinians and others were

wounded when the crowded and largely Palestinian neighborhood was

struck by what was apparently a mortar round. A spokesman for the

Palestinian community in the neighborhood told the World Today Radio

(Radiu al-`Alam al-an) that a mortar shell had been fired at an

apartment in a residential building, killing the three people. He

added that more than 1,300 Palestinian families live in al-Baladiyat

neighborhood. Witnesses said that at least seven wounded persons

were taken to hospital.

Late on Saturday evening Reuters said that eyewitnesses in Baghdad

were reporting a second explosion in a Baghdad neighborhood of

Baladiyat that left at least one Iraqi dead and many others injured.

It was the same area where the earlier bomb had gone off.

According to al-Jazeera TV, five Palestinians were killed in the

mortar attack and five others wounded when the first mortar shell

struck the largely Palestinian residential building. A second mortar

round landed between two buildings.

Al-Jazeera's correspondent noted the absence of any Iraqi puppet

police or US occupation troops, as well as the lack of ambulances in

the area of the blast. Al-Baladiyat neighborhood is home to many

Palestinian refugees of the 1948 occupation of Palestine. The al-

Jazeera correspondent said that bodies of those killed had been taken

to the al-Quds mosque and that they would be buried after Eid al-Adha.

The al-Jazeera correspondent said that the President of the

Palestinian National Committee in the area, Dr. Qusay Rif`at said "We

don't wan to accuse any party in particular of being behind this

attack, but we did read on the remnants of the two mortar shells the

sentence `Made in USA.'"

Also on Saturday, a bomb exploded under a senior puppet police

officer's car parked in front of his house in Baghdad. "We woke up

frightened when we heard a big explosion," said puppet police

Colonel `Adnan Radif al-`Ani, who heads a quick response field

collaborating with the occupation. He said the bomb was apparently

triggered by a timer.

"Maybe I was targeted because I am working with the Americans," he

told The Associated Press. The AP claimed that the bomb "slightly

injured" five children in the street.

Abu Ghurayb near Baghdad, site of a US-run concentration camp and

military base, came under mortar attack on Saturday. US forces

returned fire at what they said was the source of the incoming mortar

shells. Houses near the American camp were reportedly damaged.

There was no information on casualties, if any. The US forces keep

no account of Iraqi civilian casualties.

Earlier, Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked US vehicles in the Abu

Ghurayb area. As is standard practice for the American aggressors,

they responded to the attack by randomly opening fire in every

direction. Four Iraqi cars were totally destroyed in the US attack.

Meanwhile in Tazah, an area in the southern part of the city of

Kirkuk, Mahdi Muhammad, deputy chairman of the Turkoman party the

Turkoman Front in Tazah was assassinated and the chairman, Husayn

Mali, seriously injured by unknown gunmen who opened fire on their

car, according to Kirkuk's puppet police commander Major General

Turhan Yusuf. Mali was taken to hospital. The Turkoman Front, like

the Arab ethnic groups in the city, opposes the plans of powerful

Kurdish chauvinist parties (whose leaders sit on the US puppet so-

called Governing Council), to partition Iraq into a "federal state"

and to annex Kirkuk to the Kurdish statelet.

On the day of that assassination, the Iraqi puppet police had been

placed on high alert in anticipation of Resistance attacks Turhan

Yusuf also stated. He told the media that more than 5,000 of his

puppet policemen in 15 police stations in the city had been put a

condition of heightened readiness as the Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha

approached.

In Ba`qubah, the Iraqi puppet police reported that a 38-year old

Iraqi named `Abd al-Qadir Salah who was a specialist in the assembly

of electronic appliances, had been killed in a bomb explosion in his

home in the city on Friday evening. They speculate that he had been

trying to assemble a bomb at the time.

In the Haague, the Netherlands, the Dutch newspaper the NRC

Handelsblad reported that more than an hour prior to Friday's rocket

attack on the Dutch embassy in Baghdad, embassy staff were alerted

that an attack that their building was imminent. Three rocket-

propelled grenades struck the embassy on Friday evening. Having

received prior warning, however, the Dutch diplomats were able to

leave the building before the attack occurred. The unnamed Dutch

diplomat in Baghdad who was cited as the source of the story did not

state who it was that alerted the embassy staff. The Dutch Foreign

Ministry had no comment on the report.

On Saturday, the eve of the Islamic festival Eid al-Adha, US

occupation forces released a token number of 120 prisoners from the

Abu Ghurayb concentration camp near Baghdad. In all, the occupation

reportedly has some 28,000 prisoners in its vast network of prison

camps across the country.

Islamic groups in the city of al-Fallujah circulated a declaration on

Saturday outlining their plan for taking over control of Iraqi cities

after the withdrawal of US occupation forces from them. The

declaration said that the US is preparing to retreat in defeat from

the country having been vanquished by the Mujahideen.

The declaration said that the Mujahideen would take control over the

entrances and exits from liberated cities and impose a curfew for a

period of three days. Houses of stooges will be surrounded, and they

will be arrested. "Therefore we advise them to leave Iraq." It said

that "people who are true in the police, security services, and

traffic control will be allowed to continue at their jobs." It said

that "incompetents and former Baathists who had returned to their

jobs in return for becoming lackeys of the occupation will be thrown

out." The declaration threatened to reply harshly to any person who

opens fire on the Mujahideen as they deploy.

The declaration said that there would be formed a "council of the

country made up of all the scholars of Islamic law, medicine,

engineering, and civil law who have not offered their hands to the

occupation."

"This declaration is being observed and anyone who tears it up will

be found out and subjected to a harsh reckoning, however long it

takes," the document warned.

Men with their faces covered distributed the declaration which was

signed by 12 fundamentalist organizations and groups including: The

Iraqi Islamic Patriotic Resistance [al-Muqawamah al-Wataniyah al-

Islamiyah al-`Iraqiyah], the Salafi Movement for Propagation and

Jihad [al-Harakah as-Salafiyah li-d-Da`wah wa-l-Jihad], the al-

Qari`ah Organization [Tanzim al-Qari`ah], the Army of Partisans of

the Sunnah [Jaysh Ansar as-Sunnah], and the Army of Muhammad [Jaysh

Muhammad].

Iraqi Resistance Data Report for Sunday, 18 January 2004 through

Saturday, 24 January 2004.

http://www.geocities.com/iraqiresistancesolidarity/data.html

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.

board of the Free Arab Voice. Iraqi Resistance Log compiled by Free

Palestine Information Agency.

Hasad al-Muqawamah al-Iraqiyah.

Sunday, 18 January 2004.

1) An attack on an American military patrol outside the city of ad-

Diwaniyah south of Baghdad left one American soldier dead and three

others wounded. A Humvee was damaged.

2) An attack on an American military patrol drawn into a pre-arranged

ambush with explosives north of the city of Tikrit left two American

soldiers dead and four others wounded. Three various vehicles were

destroyed.

3) A Mercedes car was detonated by remote control as an American

military patrol was passing by it in the middle of the city of

Tikrit. The blast left two American soldiers dead, three others

wounded, and destroyed a Humvee.

4) An explosives-laden car was detonated by remote control as a

British patrol was passing by in the city of al-Basrah, leaving one

British soldier dead and two others seriously wounded. A Landrover

was destroyed.

5) An attack on a joint inspection roadblock near the city of al-

Huwayjah, 60km west of Kirkuk left two dead, including one American.

Six others, including two Americans, were injured. One tank and one

Humvee were set ablaze.

6) A qualitative martyrdom attack with a Helix vehicle carrying half

a ton of explosives on the headquarters of the American forces

command in the Presidential Palace that includes offices and

residences of the American civil governor L. Paul Bremer and the

command of the American forces left 25 persons dead, including 15

American officers and men. More than 130 others were wounded, among

them 120 American officers and men. In addition, two tanks and four

various military vehicles were destroyed and the gate of the palace

was damaged. A communiqué issued by the Resistance Forces Command

announced: "The Resistance is challenging the occupation forces in

broad daylight and in its best-defended position. Our Iraqi people

will see many of these jihadist epics in coming days."

Iraqi Resistance Log

Sunday, 18 January 2004.

Occupation forces reported suffering 3 killed and 17 wounded in Iraq

today. 1 US soldier and 2 puppet Police were killed in Iraq. 3 US

soldiers, 3 US "civilians", 2 puppet police, 2 puppet so-called civil

defense force troops, 2 British troops were all wounded in Iraq. In

addition, 3 US soldiers were wounded in Afghanistan. The US

imperialist Central Command (Centcom) reported 3 US soldiers were

wounded in Iraq today and the media reported the same. 2 Kellog,

Brown & Root (KBR) company contractor convoys were attacked. There

were 40 security incidents in Iraq today. The media only reported 7

of these incidents!

A massive vehicle martyrdom attack struck the very gates of US

headquarters, sending Baghdad reeling in chaos. In starting new

developments, Iraqi puppet policemen who were actually Resistance

fighters reportedly set up a Resistance fighter checkpoint in Bayji,

along with other Resistance fighters. This is a hopeful sign because

Resistance fighter checkpoints usually mean an entrenched

insurgency. In another positive development, after repeated failed

attempts, a small group of Resistance fighters on foot reportedly

managed to penetrate a US occupation base perimeter! They remained

inside the perimeter for some time, vanishing and reappearing on 3

separate occasions. Foot penetration of a US military base is a sign

of a highly skilled force.



1:30 AM: Several Resistance fighters were arrested in the ash-Sha`b

District of Baghdad. Their vehicle was tested for explosives. Testing

revealed that the vehicle had been used recently to transport bombs.

7:45 AM: Mortar attack on the Abu Ghurayb Prison.

8 AM: At least 31 killed and 180 wounded when a vehicle martyrdom

operation caused a massive blast outside the Assassin's Gate entrance

to the US occupation headquarters which they call the "Green Zone" in

Baghdad. According to US reports, all of the 31 killed were Iraqis -

29 Iraqi "civilians" and 2 Iraqi puppet police. 174 Iraqis were

wounded including 1 member of the puppet so-called civil defense

forces. 6 Americans were reported wounded, 3 US contractors and 3 US

soldiers. Most of the Iraqi victims were collaborators lining up to

go into the Green Zone to work.

Troops opened fire after the blast. 7 cars were set ablaze. A pickup

truck, the same model used by many US officials and their guests,

tried to cut to the front of the line at the gate. As a soldier

approached to search the truck, the 1000 lb. bomb inside exploded 100

yards from the checkpoint. Assassin's Gate is located next to a

former Presidential Palace in the very center of Baghdad. The

buildings inside the Green Zone suffered only superficial damage.

This is the first car bombing to occur inside the Green Zone itself.
