Al-Fallujah.

Seven hundred civilian bodies recovered from al-Fallujah ruins to date;
504 of them women and children.

Dr. Tamir Salih al-Ani, who is in charge of the morgue in al-Fallujah
General Hospital has reported that emergency teams in al-Fallujah
Hospital have recovered 700 bodies of Iraqis from the ruins of houses
destroyed in the course of the US aggressors offensive on the city.
Dr. Salih confirmed that among the 700 bodies were 504 bodies of women
and children. The rest are the bodies of elderly and middle aged men.

Dr. Salih explained that the bodies were dug out from the ruins on the
streets of al-Fallujah, recovered from rooftops, and dug out of gardens.
Many of the dead perished in barbarous ways, their bodies burned by
American chemical weapons. A number of others had been stabbed. The
body of one woman showed that she had been bayoneted in her thigh,
chest, and head.

Mafkarat al-Islams correspondent reported that these findings were the
result of work done in just six of al-Fallujahs neighborhoods. There
are in all 27 residential neighborhoods in the city. The death toll is
thus constantly rising as there are still large numbers of reports of
buried bodies on which the medical teams have not yet had a chance to
follow up.

Resistance ambushes US column south of al-Fallujah.

Iraqi Resistance forces attacked a US column on a dirt road leading to
some date palm groves in the Zawbi area, 30km south of al-Fallujah at

city near the western Customs Department offices, and left 19 US
military vehicles ablaze: as well as five tanks, two Humvees and
personnel carriers that were transporting American troops to the US base
west of the city. The Resistance also shot down a Cobra helicopter in
the center of the city as it was on its way to rescue the US column that
was under attack.

Puppet police sources told the witnesses that 49 American troops had
been killed as a result of the fighting, since the troop transport
vehicles were full of men when they were destroyed.

The witnesses said that 34 Resistance fighters were martyred in the
fighting. Some 90 to 120 Resistance fighters took part in the attack.
They swooped down on the American troops, taking advantage of the fact
that the area was free of passersby and civilian cars. The area is
known for its rough, hilly terrain. The Americans had set up towers to
keep watch over their forces as they passed through the area, but today,
Resistance fighters attacked the towers and destroyed three of them.
The puppet police reported that nine American troops were killed in the
Resistance attacks on the observation towers.

al-Jazeera.

Al-Jazeera satellite TV broadcast a video tape made by a Resistance
group called the Brigades of Islamic Rage Umar ibn al-Khattab
Squadron, that showed a fighter preparing the bomb, that was apparently

Fierce fighting erupted in the Commercial City [al-Madinah at-Tijariyah]

fighters had entrenched themselves. The correspondent reported that the
Resistance withdrew from their strongpoint under the US aerial bombing,
leaving behind 61 US dead and 47 Americans wounded. The Brigades of the
Martyr Ahmad Yasin Resistance organization declared that it lost 24 of

quitting their work with the Americans, but the couple killed on Sunday
failed to quit their jobs and were therefore killed.

report issued by the Main Hospital of Mosul listed the cause of death as
direct bullet wounds to the head. Mafkarat al-Islams correspondent in
Mosul reported that local people attribute the assassination of Dr.
al-Qazzaz to his insistence that it was obligatory for people to fight
the US occupation, and the fact that he regarded anyone collaborating
with the American invaders as an infidel.

In response to the murder of Dr. al-Qazzaz, Mafkarat al-Islam reported
that Resistance forces carried out a major attack from 1pm to 4pm
Sunday on several occupation positions, firing off fifty-four 120mm
mortar rounds, as well at Grad and Tariq rockets. Explosions could be
heard and flame could be seen inside the US al-Ghazlani camp in northern

cameras with him) shot at him and struck him in his right thigh. The
