US Forces Using Iraqi Children as Human Shields

by IM Friday, Nov. 19, 2004 at 4:19 PM

Resistance field commander saw American troops use women and children as human shields atop their tanks.

A field commander in the Iraqi Resistance disclosed to a correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam in al-Fallujah what he called the “tragedy of the street fighting” by which he meant the way that the invading American troops were using Iraqi women and children as human shields.

The commander said that the tragedy began last Tuesday. Before that he had never seen it before, where the Americans were using women and children to shield their tanks. The commander commented: “this state is living through a type of savagery that history has never known before.”

The Resistance field commander said “we could hear the cries of the children and the women’s calls for help from atop a column of tanks that was driving along ath-Tharthar street last Tuesday. Some of our fighters closed their eyes in pain and wept at the sight.”
