Once again, the Mujahideen have conducted a painful operation against occupation forces inside Iraq when an American unit was ambushed on the highway north of Al-Fallujah Saturday.
Iraqi Resistance fighters fired mortars and RPG’s on an American convoy, landing direct hits on two Humvees that totally destroyed the vehicles. In the first Humvee, two soldiers inside were burnt to death. The second contained a driver with six others on the back. All were killed.
Four Opel (German) cars the army units always drive when some visitors come were also hit. All four drivers were killed.
This is the second incident outside of Fallujah within a week that has resulted in large numbers of American casualties that has gone unreported in mainstream press. Emirates National news agency reported last Thursday that approximately twenty American soldiers were killed and others wounded after three landmines exploded on their troop transport carrier traveling south of Al-Fallujah in the of Albo-Essa. Mujaideen planted the bombs earlier and detonated them remotely.
Fifteen More Soldiers Killed Sunday
Fifteen American soldiers were killed Sunday in Ar-Ramadi area with a car rigged with explosives who were patrolling in front of Childbirth Hospital, (previously Saddam Hospital and all of them totally burned.
Eyewitnesses said that a fast car approached the American patrol near Ar-Ramadi Court about 50 meters before it exploded causing a huge flame that made even the model of the car not recognizable after the explosion. This attack suggests a new tactic is being used by the Mujahideen in the area. (JUS)
