      Al-Anbar Province.
      Al-Hadithah.

      Witnesses report 10 American Marines killed when Resistance fighters
      shoot down US Chinook helicopter near al-Hadithah, Sunday afternoon.

      In a dispatch posted at 3:19pm Makkah time Monday afternoon,
      Mafkarat al-Islam reported that 10 US Marines were killed when Iraqi
      Resistance fighters shot down a US Chinook helicopter with a Strela
      anti-aircraft rocket near al-Hadithah, 236km northwest of Baghdad
      late Sunday afternoon.

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Resistance
      fighters fired medium weapons and a Strela rocket at a US Chinook
      helicopter that had just taken off from the al-Hadithah Dam area in
      Barwanah near the city.

      The eyewitnesses said that the helicopter crashed immediately and
      fire could be seen burning in the remains of the craft on the
      ground. US troops closed off the crash site immediately after the
      attack. Then about 15 minutes later, fierce fighting erupted
      between the Americans and Iraqi Resistance fighters. Although no
      information on casualties from that firefight were known. Local
      residents of Barwanah said confirmed that 10 US Marines who had been
      aboard the helicopter were killed when it crashed.

      For its part the US military initially admitted that one Marine had
      died and three more were "missing" following the "forced landing" of
      a US helicopter over the lake behind the dam. A later report
      carried by the American Associated Press quoted the US military as
      saying that four Marines had died in a helicopter "crash." In
      keeping with the standard American practice of secrecy, the US
      military said only that a "twin-rotor CH-46 helicopter from the 3rd
      Marine Aircraft Wing" crashed near Lake al-Qadisiyah near al-
      Hadithah dam, but did not admit that the helicopter had been shot
      down, nor did they admit to the number of casualties reported by
      local eyewitnesses.

      Al-Fallujah.

      Residents of al-Fallujah vow to keep women off the roads after US
      troops resume practice of doing body searches of Iraqi women in al-
      Fallujah.

      In a dispatch posted at 12:56pm Makkah time Monday afternoon,
      Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US troops resumed searches of women
      in al-Fallujah on Sunday, a practice they had abandoned under
      intense pressure some time ago.

      The al-Fallujah correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported
      eyewitnesses as saying that US trops in all their checkpoints on the
      roads to and from the city had begun to search women for no stated
      reason. Local residents, angry and resentful over the practice, are
      now determined not to let women out for any reason even for hospital
      visits if they are to be subjected to searches.

      Asked about why the searches were of such import, the Mafkarat al-
      Islam correspondent reported local people as saying that sometimes
      the Americans have let male troops carry out the body searches and
      that even when female troops do the searching, it is a deliberate
      act of humiliation.

      The local residents pointed out that US troops gather in large
      numbers around the places where the searches of women are going on
      making residents of al-Fallujah unwilling to leave their women in
      the hands of the Americans, even American female soldiers, with so
      many of the male soldiers in the area – men, they say who, "display
      not even the most basic level of morality."

      US Marines search neighborhood in al-Fallujah Sunday.

      In a dispatch posted at 12:04pm Makkah time midday Monday, Mafkarat
      al-Islam reported that US Marines carried out a campaign of raids
      and searches in al-Fallujah, about 60km west of Baghdad on Sunday.

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as
      saying that US troops and large numbers of military vehicles
      surrounded the al-Mu`allimin neighborhood in the middle of al-
      Fallujah not letting anyone in or out. The Americans ordered all
      local residents to remain inside their houses and then began
      searches of many homes and businesses in the neighborhood. In the
      end, however, the Americans found nothing and arrested no one in the
      sweep.

      The Shi`i sectarian Jaysh al-Mahdi militia is run by Muqtada as-
      Sadr, a Shi`i cleric loyal to Iran, which is seeking to extend its
      regional hegemony and step into the shoes of the American occupation
      in Iraq.

      Baghdad.

      Resistance men gun down two members of entourage of US-installed
      puppet "Iraqi President" Jalal Talibani in Baghdad.

      In a dispatch posted at 8:27pm Makkah time Monday night, Mafkarat al-
      Islam reported that a short while earlier Iraqi Resistance forces
      had shot and killed two men in the entourage of US-installed
      puppet "Iraqi President" Jalal Talibani in Baghdad's al-Mansur
      district.

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as
      saying that the attack took place near the embassy of the United
      Arab Emirates in al-Mansur. Two officers in the pro-American
      Kurdish separatist Peshmergah militia were riding in a Toyota
      Landcruiser towards the famous as-Sa`ah Restaurant when armed men
      wearing exercise clothing opened fire on their vehicle.

      The witnesses said that the two Peshmergah gunmen died instantly.
      The Resistance men then pulled the bodies from the car, found their
      identity documents and placed those on the chests of the bodies in
      the middle of the street for public information.

      The Resistance men then hurriedly left the area. US and Iraqi
      puppet forces surrounded whole the scene, where it was rumored that
      one of the dead men was a relative of puppet "President" Talibani's
      wife.

      Two US troops reported killed in Resistance ambush in Baghdad.

      In a dispatch posted at 2:44pm Makkah time Monday afternoon,
      Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked a
      US military patrol in the middle of Baghdad.

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as
      saying that a group of Resistance men armed with light and medium
      machine guns attacked a US patrol on as-Safarat Street in the middle
      of Baghdad, disabling a Humvee and killing two US troops and
      wounding a third.

      The witnesses said hat in spite of the indiscriminate shooting that
      the Americans did in response to the attack, the Resistance men were
      able to slip away without losses after carrying out their ambush.

      More than 15 pro-Iranian Shi`i sectarian gunmen killed or wounded in

      82mm mortar rounds into a headquarters of the pro-Iranian Shi`i
      sectarian Jaysh al-Mahdi militia in the western Baghdad district of
      ash-Shu`lah on Monday morning.

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported a source in the
      puppet police as saying that three of the shells landed inside the
      militia headquarters and the fourth landed in an abandoned building
      next door. More than 15 pro-Iranian sectarian gunmen were killed or
      wounded in the barrage, the source said.

      In a dispatch posted at 12:03pm Makkah time midday Monday, Mafkarat
      al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance fighters abducted a member
      of the pro-American "Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in
      Iraq" (SCIRI) in Baghdad.

      The Baghdad correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported sources in

      evening.

      evening.

      in southwest Baghdad Sunday.

      In a dispatch posted at 12:46pm Makkah time Monday afternoon,
      Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance forces fired a
      Katyusha rocket into a pro-Iranian Shi`i sectarian Jaysh al-Mahdi
      headquarters in southwest Baghdad on Sunday.

      The Baghdad correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported local
      eyewitnesses as saying that the rocket scored a direct hit and
      produced a violent explosion that sent a plume of thick smoke rising
      into the sky over the facility.

      The Shi`i sectarian Jaysh al-Mahdi militia is run by Muqtada as-
      Sadr, a Shi`i cleric loyal to Iran, which is seeking to extend its
      regional hegemony and step into the shoes of the American occupation
      in Iraq.

      Bayji.

      Nine American troops reported killed in battles in locked-down city
      of as-Siniyah Sunday evening, Monday morning.

      In a dispatch posted at 7:14pm Makkah time Monday night, Mafkarat al-
      Islam reported that as the US blockade on the town of as-Siniyah
      finishes its third day, swarms of US helicopters filled the sky over
      the area and massive explosions rocked the American-encircled area.

      The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported residents of as-
      Siniyah as saying over the telephone that Resistance men had
      destroyed four US vehicles on Sunday and Monday morning and that it
      was said that nine American troops had been killed in those
      Resistance operations.

      Residents of as-Siniyah said that the Americans had cut off running
      water and electricity and imposed a curfew in the city. They said
      that more than 200 local residents had been arrested so far, but
      that some of those had been released.

      Puppet "Iraqi Interior Ministry Shock Troops (Maghawir)" were
      participating in the sweep alongside the Americans and their
      behavior towards the local population was worse than that of the
      Americans, as-Siniyah residents reported, harsher and more hateful.

      As-Siniyah is the site of small oil refineries not far from Bayji,
      about 200km north of Baghdad.
