      Highway, exploded as a column of 12 US armored vehicles passed by on
      its way to the city of al-Hadithah.

      In a bulletin posted at 10:15am Mecca time Friday morning, Mafkarat
      al-Islam reported that an Iraqi Resistance land mine exploded a short

      the area where the bomb exploded.

      Baghdad.

      Large-scale Resistance assault on US headquarters leaves 14 Americans
      dead or wounded early Friday morning.

      Fighting erupted near the building where the chiefs of staff of the
      Iraqi Army had their headquarters before the US invasion in the al-
      `Amiriyah neighborhood of western Baghdad at 6am Friday morning.

      A source in the Iraqi puppet army told the correspondent for Mafkarat
      al-Islam in the area that more than 40 Iraqi Resistance fighters,
      equipped with various medium and heavy weapons, attempted to storm
      the headquarters of the US military in the al-`Amiriyah area on the
      old al-`Amiriyah Road. The attack destroyed three Humvees and left
      14 US soldiers dead or wounded in the observation camp located at the
      gate to the US headquarters. The puppet source said that more than
      20 Iraqi Resistance fighters were killed in the attack.

      The fighting lasted for more than an hour and a half after which
      swarms of US occupation helicopters came in.

      One of the doctors and an Iraqi ambulance team that entered the area
      after the engagement denied the claim that "more than 20" Iraqi
      Resistance fighters were killed in the battle. They confirmed to the
      Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent that they found bodies of four Iraqi
      Resistance fighters who had received chest or head wounds. Other
      witnesses reported that most of the Resistance fighters withdrew
      after the arrival of the American helicopters and warplanes on the
      scene.

      the bombing told Mafkarat al-Islam that a high-explosive Resistance
      bomb that was planted by the side of the road exploded, destroying a
      Humvee and killing four US troops and wounding a fifth.

      Captain `Ali Husayn of the Iraqi puppet army told the correspondent
      for Mafkarat al-Islam that the fifth American soldier, listed above
      as wounded, later died of his wounds.

      of the pro-American Shi`i religious authority Ayatallah `Ali as-

      Agence France Presse (AFP), as monitored by Mafkarat al-Islam,

      saying that Resistance fighters killed Kamal ad-Din al-Ghurayfi, a
      deputy of `Ali as-Sistani, along with two of his followers. Three
      more were wounded in the attack. The source said that the Resistance
      fighters attacked the collaborator cleric as he was on his way to
      perform Friday prayers in the Shi`i place of worship known as the
      Husayniyat ad-Duriyin in the al-`Alawi district of central Baghdad.

      In the Shi`i holy city of an-Najaf, 160km south of Baghdad, a source
      in the office of pro American Shi`i cleric `Ali as-Sistani
      acknowledged that the attack took place but offered no details as to
      the identity of those killed or wounded in the attack. The source
      confirmed that al-Ghurayfi was one of as-Sistani's deputies resident
      in Baghdad.

      resident in the New Baghdad district in the southeast of the Iraqi

      the blast killed one guard and wounded another when it occurred at
      the checkpoint located about 25 meters from the chauvinist party

      Resistance shoots down unmanned drone west of Mosul Thursday night.

      downing from sources in the Iraqi puppet army who were encircling al-
      Ba`aj along with American occupation troops looking for the wreckage
      of the craft.

      Major Sinan Ahmad of the puppet army told Mafkarat al-Islam that the

      Resistance fire. The correspondent was unable to ascertain whether
      the Americans had found the wreckage of the craft or not.

      Al-Muthanna Province.
      As-Samawah.

      Shi`i Religious authority issues fatwa: "a man who commits adultery
      in public with his mother in the holy mosque in Mecca and then goes
      to fight the Americans in Iraq is nobler than the Shi`i imams who sit
      in Qom and an-Najaf."

      As sentiment among supporters of Muqtada as-Sadr and Jawad as-Salihi
      in southern Iraq's Shi`i population against the US occupation
      increases, the Shi`i religious authority Ahmad al-Hasani al-Baghdadi
      on Wednesday evening issued a religious opinion [fatwa] in the
      southern city of as-Samawah in which he incited the Shi`ah to fight
      the US occupation everywhere and to join ranks with the Sunnis in
      their fight – a battle that al-Baghdadi called a "sacred duty."

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam in as-Samawah reported from
      the office of the Shi`i religious authority Ahmad al-Hasani al-
      Baghdadi that the Shaykh said that "the current situation in Iraq, in
      which there are campaigns of Judaisation and distortion and
      denegration of Islam and Islamic sacred values, in which Muslim women
      are raped and children murdered, impels me today to rule that a
      person who commits adultery with his mother openly in the holy mosque
      in Mecca and then goes to fight the Americans and wage jihad against
      them in the streets and lanes of Baghdad and the cities of Iraq is
      nobler and holier in the sight of God than the Imams sitting in Qom
      and an-Najaf."

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the fatwa of
      Ahmad al-Hasani al-Baghdadi was circulated after US occupation forces
      distributed Christian evangelistic leaflets among the Shi`ah of
      southern Iraq several days ago, as a part of the Christian missionary
      campaigns that the region has witnessed in recent weeks.
      Correspondents of Mafkarat al-Islam have previously reported on the
      campaign after they had personally obtained copies of the New
      Testament that US troops were distributing to Iraqis along with other
      methods designed to lure the largest number of Shi`i Iraqis to
      convert to Christianity.
