Al-Anbar Province.
Rawah.

Resistance bomb leaves six Marines reported dead in Rawah Monday

In a dispatch posted at 1:58pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that an Iraqi Resistance bomb exploded by 
a US foot patrol near the al-Habib al-Mustafa School in the old 
Rawah area, about 315km northwest of Baghdad on Monday morning.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the explosion 
killed six US Marines in full view of local residents.   
Eyewitnesses told Mafkarat al-Islam that a bomb that had been 
planted under a pile of rubbish next to the road blew up as a patrol 
of about 15 US troops walked over it.  The witnesses said that six 
Marines were killed and three more wounded in the blast.

After the attack, American forces rushed more than 20 vehicles to 
the area, which they surrounded from 8am until 10am Monday morning.  
During that time they arrested 13 local people.

Al-Qa'im.

Resistance car bomb blasts border outpost in al-Qa'im inflicting 
casualties on US forces early Monday afternoon.

In a dispatch posted at 1:48pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a short while earlier, an Iraqi 
Resistance fida'i fighter blew up his explosives-laden car at the al-
Walid border complex on the frontier between Iraq and Syria in al-
Qa'im.

The al-Qa'im correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the 
explosion killed or wounded more than 20 US troops according to 
preliminary accounts.

Al-Hadithah.

Resistance men clear street in al-Hadithah, then car bomber blasts 
American tank, killing a reported seven US troops.

In a dispatch posted at 2:19pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that an Iraqi Resistance fida'i fighter 
drove an explosives-laden car into a US tank that was parked on al-
Barid Street in the middle of al-Hadithah.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as 
saying that a Resistance fighter driving a black Daewoo drove at 
extremely high speed into the US tank and blew up on impact.  The 
blast destroyed the tank completely and killed the seven US soldiers 
aboard it.  A witness pointed out how body parts of one of the 
American soldiers were thrown 30 meters by the force of the car bomb 
explosion.  It is believed that those remains belonged to the 
soldier who had been in the open turret of the tank when the attack 
took place.

The correspondent reported that masked men arrived on the scene just 
before the attack and asked shop keepers and pedestrians to quietly 
but completely clear the street so as not to draw the attention of 
the Americans.  The street was then completely clear when the attack 
took place.

US carries out mass arrests in suburb of al-Hadithah in dawn raids.

In a dispatch posted at 2:05pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US forces carried out mass arrests 
in the town of Barwanah, near al-Hadithah, 236km northwest of 
Baghdad.  Fifty local residents were abducted by the American troops 
during the dawn raids on Monday.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US soldiers 
under air cover from helicopter gun ships carried out two waves or 
raids and searches using police dogs and blowing people's doors open 
with percussion grenades.  The Americans arrested 50 local men 
ranging in age from 20 to 50 years in addition to one elderly woman 
whose son was not home during the raids.  The Americans accuse the 
son of belonging to the Iraqi Resistance so they arrested his mother 
as a means to apply pressure on the son.

Al-Fallujah.

Resistance sharpshooter kills US soldier in al-Fallujah, one day 
after American claims to have captured the "al-Fallujah Sniper."

In a dispatch posted at 2:40pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that one day after American forces 
claimed to have captured the "al-Fallujah Sniper," an Iraqi 
Resistance marksman shot and killed a US Marine in the city's al-
Jumhuriyah neighborhood at 10am local time Monday morning.

The al-Fallujah correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a 
group of US occupation troops were standing opposite the al-Wahdah 
al-Hassabiyah Building in the city when one of them took a direct 
hit in the head from an Iraqi Resistance sharpshooter's bullet, 
killing him instantly.

On Sunday the American forces had issued a declaration boasting of 
the capture of the "al-Fallujah Sniper."

Local residents noted that the Americans sealed off the area where 
the attack occurred and it was still closed at the time of reporting.

Resistance fighters assault puppet "Iraqi National Guard" 
headquarters in al-Fallujah Sunday night.

In a dispatch posted at 2:25pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance fighters assaulted 
the as-Salam hotel in al-Fallujah, about 60km west of Baghdad, on 
Sunday evening, firing rocket-propelled grenades at the building 
that is used by the puppet "Iraqi National Guard" as a headquarters 
in the Industrial Zone of the city.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as 
saying that the grenades set off violent explosions in the 
building.  Afterwards, Iraqipuppet troops opened fire intensely and 
indiscriminately for 15 minutes.

Ar-Ramadi.

Resistance bomb destroys US Bradley armored vehicle in ar-Ramadi 
Sunday night.

In a dispatch posted at 2pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, Mafkarat 
al-Islam reported that an Iraqi Resistance bomb exploded under a US 
Bradley armored vehicle on 17 Tammuz Street in the middle of ar-
Ramadi on Sunday night.

The ar-Ramadi correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported an 
officer in the puppet army as saying that after the bomb went off, 
Resistance men fired a shoulder-launched rocket at the US vehicle, 
totally destroying it and killing or wounding all those aboard.

On Monday morning, US troops closed the bridge in the city again and 
imposed a curfew on several neighborhoods of ar-Ramadi, where the 
mood is extremely tense.

US troops kill five Iraqi civilians in ar-Ramadi.

US troops shot and killed five Iraqi civilians in the city of ar-
Ramadi, al-Jazeera satellite TV quoted medical sources as saying in 
that city.

Two other Iraqis were wounded in that American attack, the doctors 
told al-Jazeera.

A source in the puppet police said that US forces had struck two 
houses in the dcity and razed two other homes but when speaking with 
al-Jazeera made no mention of casualties.

Monday was the third straight day during which US forces kept the 
city of ar-Ramadi sealed off from the outside world and full of 
large numbers of American troops.

Baghdad.

Mysterious bombs blast Shi`i areas of Baghdad Monday as efforts to 
split Iraq continue.

In a bulletin posted at 2:33pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a mysterious car bomb had exploded a 
short while earlier on 20 Street opposite the Jabbar Abu ash-Sharbat 
soft drink store in the predominantly Shi`i al-Bayya` neighborhood 
of Baghdad.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as 
saying that an explosives-packed car that had been parked by the 
side of the road blew up, killing or wounding more than 30 
individuals according to a preliminary count.

Then in a dispatch posted at 3:08pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a bomb had gone off in the middle of 
a gathering of laborers on `Arus Mandali Square in the Madinat as-
Sadr area of Baghdad at 6:30am Monday morning, killing or wounding 
80 people.

In its dispatch on the attack, Quds Press reported that some 90 
people had been killed or injured in the bomb blast, which targeted 
a gathering of laborers in the Madinat as-Sadr area of the occupied 
Iraqi capital.  The attack took place in spite of the fact that US 
forces have kept Madinat as-Sadr under an intense blockade, sealed 
off for about six days now from the outside world.

A source in the puppet police told Quds Press that a bomb that had 
been placed in a trash bag blew up on Monday morning near Square 55 
in Madinat as-Sadr.  That square is a daily gathering place for 
dozens of day laborers who wait there, hoping to be hired for jobs.

According to a report issued by as-Sadr Hospital in the district, 29 
people were killed in the Monday morning explosion and at least 60 
more injured, some of them severely.

Al-Jazeera satellite TV reported that 33 people were killed and 59 
wounded in the Madinat as-Sadr bombing, which, it added, targeted 
construction workers.

Quds Press noted that ambulances and private cars could be seen 
taking victims to the hospital as fire trucks rushed to the area to 
try to extinguish the blaze ignited by the explosion.

The American blockade, under which all entrances and exits from 
Madinat as-Sadr have been closed, is part of a US search for an 
American soldier who disappeared about a week ago.

Quds Press reported that the fact that the explosion could take 
place despite the area being cut off from the outside world raised 
questions as to who would have the opportunity to carry out such a 
large-scale attack under those circumstances.

Al-Jazeera reported the press spokesman for the Martyr as-Sadr 
Office in al-Karkh as blaming US occupation forces as being 
responsible for the blast.

Shaykh Hamdallah ar-Rukkabi told al-Jazeera that Madinat as-Sadr was 
peaceful but that the presence of US occupation forces was a tragedy 
and that this was the second bomb to go off there since the 
Americans imposed their blockade on the area several days ago.

Such bombings that target civilian areas are widely believed to be 
part of an effort to spark sectarian conflict in Iraq in order to 
facilitate efforts to partition Iraq according to plans drawn up by 
Zionist and American strategists.

Since the US occupation of Iraq, plans of this nature were reflected 
by Leslie Gelb (President Emeritus of the US Council on Foreign 
Relations) in "The Three-State Solution" published in The New York 
Times on 25 November 2003, in the article by Gelb and US Democratic 
Senator Joseph Biden in "Unity through Autonomy in Iraq," in The New 
York Times on 1 May 2006.  Banking on splitting the Shi`ah in Iraq 
from the rest of the country was a cornerstone of the neo-
Conservative strategy laid out in "A Clean Break" a paper drawn up 
by American Zionist government officials Richard Perle, Douglas 
Feith, David Wurmser, and Paul Wolfowitz in 1996 for the then 
Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Then in 2000 the neo-
Conservative Project for a New American Century wrote Rebuilding 
America's Defenses on the basis of the "Clean Break."

But before the recent period, the idea of "the dissolution of Iraq 
into a Shi`ite state, a Sunni state and the separation of the 
Kurdish part" was voiced by veteran Zionist military correspondent 
Ze'ev Schiff in Ha'aretz on 2 June 1982 and was a part of the divide-
and-rule strategy laid out by Zionist writer Oded Yinon in 
his "Strategy for Israel in the 1980s," published in Kivunim 
(Directions), A Journal for Judaism and Zionism, published by the 
World Zionist Organization in occupied Jerusalem in February 1982.  
(It was translated by the late anti-Zionist writer and activist 
Israel Shahak and is widely available.)

Iraqi writers issue appeal, denouncing plans to split Iraq 
under "federation" scheme.

Dozens of Iraqi journalists and writers issued a declaration 
entitled "Not in our name" calling on Iraqis in every part of the 
country and from every religious and ethnic background to join 
together to block the effort aimed at "federalizing" their country.

Quds Press, which obtained a copy of the appeal, reported that the 
writers and journalists stated that, "the federation plan that has 
been proposed is nothing but a plot, precisely woven without our 
people's knowledge in order to destroy them by dividing them into 
little feuding states that will exhaust their strength and bring 
down the Iraqi state that has the potential to turn into a great and 
mighty power that could threaten the interests and ambitions of the 
colonialist west and its creature the Hebrew state in Palestine."

The statement pointed out that federations are usually a way 
gradually to unite separate entities so as to strengthen all the 
component parts through greater unity.  "It has never happened in 
the history of the world," the statement said, "that a centralized 
state should be split up and turned into a federation.  In any case, 
what is being proposed in Iraq is the partition of the Iraqi state 
into little statelets, linked by something called a federal union 
that has no relationship with the concept of a federal state.

Resistance bombs blast US troops in western Baghdad's al-`Amiriyah, 
sparking gunbattle early Monday afternoon.

In a dispatch posted at 1:36pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a short while earlier fighting broke 
out between Iraqi Resistance men and US occupation troops in the 
western Baghdad district of al-`Amiriyah.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported from al-`Amiriyah 
that two Resistance bombs exploded by US troops sparking a gun 
battle centered around al-`Amal ash-Sha`bi Street and al-`Asl Street 
and near the at-Tur`ah coffee house near the old bomb shelter.

Salah ad-Din Province.
Ad-Dulu`iyah.

US helicopter gun ships kill 11 Iraqi civilians in ad-Dulu`iyah 
Sunday night.

In a dispatch posted at 2:02pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US helicopter gun ships shot and 
killed 11 Iraqi civilians and wounded another six in ad-Dulu`iyah, 
97km north of Baghdad, on Sunday-Monday night.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported a source in the 
Iraqi puppet police as saying that US helicopter gun ships opened 
fire with their machine guns on a group of civilians who were 
guarding an intersection.  Eleven youths were killed, three of them 
brothers, and another six were wounded.

The source said that the victims had been standing and gathering at 
the intersection and were keeping watch there because of the 
sectarian fighting that had been going on in the nearby town of 
Balad in recent days.

The body parts of the slain youths were found in various farm fields 
around the area, blown apart by the heavy machine gun bullets fired 
by US helicopters.

Diyala Province.
Al-Khalis.

Mysterious bomb kills workmen in al-Khalis.

A mysterious bomb exploded by a group of laborers in the town of al-
Khalis, about 60km north of Baghdad.

Al-Jazeera satellite TV reported Monday that two workmen were killed 
in the mysterious explosion and three more of them wounded.

Such bombings that target civilian areas are widely believed to be 
part of an effort to spark sectarian conflict in Iraq in order to 
facilitate efforts to partition Iraq according to plans drawn up by 
Zionist and American strategists.

At-Ta'mim Province.
Kirkuk.

Resistance attacker kills two puppet policemen in Kirkuk.

An Iraqi Resistance fida'i fighter wearing an explosive belt blew 
himself up in a puppet police headquarters in the northern city of 
Kirkuk, al-Jazeera satellite TV reported Monday.

Sources in the Iraqi puppet police told al-Jazeera that the 
explosion killed two puppet policemen and wounded 11 other people, 
five of those also puppet policemen.

Ninwa Province.
Al-Mawsil.

Resistance ambush destroys three trucks hauling supplies to US 
troops in al-Mawsil.

In a dispatch posted at 1:40pm Makkah time Monday afternoon, 
Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance fighters armed with 
pipe rockets and machine guns destroyed three trucks in a convoy 
hauling provisions Kirkuk to US forces in the al-Mithaq neighborhood 
of al-Mawsil in northern Iraq.

The al-Mawsil correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the 
drivers of the three trucks – a Turk and two Iraqis working for the 
US occupation – were killed in the attack.  Afterwards, US troops 
surrounded the area where the ambush took place.
