Seven U.S. Soldiers Wounded in Iraq Grenade Attack
01.05.2003 [14:48]

FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) - Seven U.S. soldiers were wounded in a grenade attack at their base in the Iraqi city of Falluja, where American troops killed at least 15 people during protests this week, the U.S. military said on Thursday.

"The attack was an expression of the anger of a few people in the city after what happened," Captain Alan Vaught said in reference to the U.S. shootings at earlier anti-American demonstrations.

The U.S. soldiers injured in the grenade attack late on Wednesday were evacuated from the city 30 miles west of Baghdad. Vaught said their injuries were not life threatening.

After the attack, U.S. troops exchanged gunfire with Iraqis but there were no additional injuries.

Falluja Mayor Taha Badawi Hamid al-Alwani, who said he was selected by local tribesmen to lead the city after the fall of Saddam Hussein on April 9, condemned the grenade attack.

"Anybody, whoever he is, American or Iraqi, who resorts to violence is an evil person," said Alwani, who has been urging community and religious leaders to help defuse tensions.

Deputy Mayor Ziad Mekhlif said, however: "If the Americans make a mistake and overreact again I don't know how we will contain the hatred."

Tension has been running high in the conservative Sunni Muslim city of about 270,000 over the presence of U.S. troops stationed in a former Baath party compound protected with barbed wire and guarded from sand-bagged gun positions on the roof.

ANTI-AMERICAN BANNERS

While residents generally say they are grateful the Americans ousted Saddam, they have made clear they want U.S. troops to leave them to govern their city as soon as possible.

On the perimeter walls of the mayor's compound, residents hung anti-American banners. "Sooner or later U.S. killers we'll kick you out," read one sign, written in English.

Other banners repeated the message throughout the city.

"Go out of our city. If you refuse our women and children will kill you," another banner said, also in English.

On Monday, U.S. soldiers fired on an angry crowd demanding U.S. troops leave a school they had occupied. Thirteen Iraqis were killed. Two days later, two Iraqis were killed when U.S. soldiers opened fire in a similar incident.

The U.S. military said its troops were shot at first in both incidents but Iraqi witnesses said the shootings were unprovoked.

"I can't do anything now because they have tanks. But I will wait and I will kill Americans. I will take my revenge," said 14-year-old Ahmed Muthana, whose father was wounded and uncle killed when soldiers shot at demonstrations on Monday.

City officials said they had been meeting with U.S. troops to reduce tension and were negotiating for them to move their base to the outskirts of the city.

The American troops have left the school that sparked Monday's demonstration.

Deputy Mayor Mekhlif said the U.S. military presence was less visible on Thursday than in previous days with no road check points and fewer surveillance helicopters overhead.

Seven US troops hurt in Fallujah grenade attack
By afp in FALLUJAH

Seven US soldiers were wounded when two men threw grenades over the wall of their compound in Fallujah, in central Iraq, last night, a US officer said.

Six soldiers were moderately wounded and a seventh sustained slight injuries, Captain Frank Rosenblatt, an intelligence officer with the 82nd Airborne Division, said.

Two military vehicles were damaged in the attack in the town where 16 people were shot dead by US troops this week. Three Iraqis were killed and two were left in a critical condition yesterday, a local doctor said, when US troops opened fire on an angry crowd of residents protesting the US presence in Fallujah, which lies about 50 kilometres (30 miles) west of Baghdad. Thirteen people were shot dead in a similar incident on Monday night.

Captain Rosenblatt said that yesterday's shootings occurred after soldiers thought that the protesters, who were throwing stones and slippers, were hurling grenades. About Monday's incident, he said that US troops had identified 25 men armed with rifles in the area and managed to confiscate several automatic weapons.

"Most of them got away," he said, referring to the armed men. "I can't believe these rumours that those people were unarmed are still circulating," he said.

Religious leaders in Fallujah said that they had asked US forces to pull back to the outskirts of the town. Captain Rosenblatt said that the US Army was conducting talks with local authorities, but soldiers would still "do what they have to do to defend themselves."

Falluja grenade attack injures US soldiers

Thursday May 1, 2003
The Guardian

Seven US soldiers were today wounded in a grenade attack on their base in the Iraqi city of Falluja, where troops have killed at least 15 civilians during protests this week.

An American military spokesman said the incident appeared to be a revenge attack after US troops in the town opened fire on anti-American demonstrators for the second time in three days.

Captain Alan Vaught said: "The attack was an expression of the anger of a few people in the city after what happened." None of the injuries to soldiers of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment was life threatening, he added.

Troops inside the former police station fired on men seen fleeing the area following the assault, but no one was captured or believed hit.

The 1 am (2100 GMT Wednesday) attack came less than 24 hours after soldiers shot at anti-American demonstrators massed outside the compound, killing two and wounding 18, according to hospital officials.

US officers said that barrage was provoked when someone fired on the convoy from the crowd but Iraqi witnesses disputed this, saying there was no gunfire from the demonstrators.

That march was staged to protest a another shooting on Monday night, when US troops fired on a demonstrating crowd. Sixteen Iraqis were killed and more than 50 wounded.

Residents of Falluja said they had heard relatives of victims vow to avenge these incidents. Today's grenade attack, they said, was the result.

The city's mayor, whose compound is next door to the US base, confirmed there was an attack on the base but said he did not know who the assailants were.

Officials and citizens in Falluja have repeatedly called on American troops to leave the city, a conservative Sunni Muslim city and Ba'ath party stronghold 30 miles west of Baghdad.

The latest clash between Iraqis and US troops comes on the same day that President George W Bush is to deliver a keynote address to the American nation declaring the war in Iraq a success.

His speech to the nation from the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, as it returns home from the Gulf, will stop short of a formal victory declaration, however, with the administration still seeking hard evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and sporadic resistance continuing.

The announcement will not amount to a formal end to hostilities, but will set the stage for the US-led campaign in Iraq to focus on reconstruction.
