Al-Qa’im.

 

US troops bulldoze 1,000-year old historic district in al-Qa’im, turn it into soccer field.

 

In a dispatch posted at 2:55pm Makkah time Thursday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US occupation forces had demolished a thousand-year old historic district dating back to the First Abbasi Period (762-833 C.E.) in the city of al-Qa’im near the Iraq-Syria border, turning it into a soccer field.

 

The Baghdad correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported an announcement issued by the Department of Antiquities and signed by 'Abd al-Karim Falih, the department’s director, on Thursday as saying that the Americans had destroyed a historic district dating from the Abbasi period, completely leveling it with bulldozers and other equipment.

 

The Antiquities Department announcement said that the Americans bulldozed the area into a soccer field despite the fact that it was fenced off with signs posted warning against going inside because it was a Historic Islamic Heritage District.

 

The statement denounced the behavior of the Americans saying that the district told the story of the Abbasi era, a time of great flowering of Arab-Islamic culture.

 

Mafkarat al-Islam noted that the US forces have destroyed seven historical sites dating back to the Abbasi era and even further back to the earliest Islamic period.  One of those was the Abbasi Caliph’s palace in as-Saqlawiyah, another the historic area 30km west of al-Fallujah in which the Battle of Dhat al-'Uyun was fought by the early Muslim warriors under Khalid ibn al-Walid who liberated the country from the Persian Empire.  American forces also destroyed the 'Anah Citadel and the Hit Citadel, as well as other centuries-old Islamic cites.

 

Al-Habbaniyah.

 

Resistance rockets blast US airbase in al-Habbaniyah at dawn Thursday.

 

In a dispatch posted at 6:29pm Makkah time Thursday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance fighters fired six rockets at the former Iraqi Army al-Hadbah airfield in al-Habbaniyah, 69km west of Baghdad, a facility now used by the US occupation as their base in the city.  The attack took place at dawn on Thursday.

 

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported villagers from the al-Habbaniyah area as saying that the rockets blasted into the US base shortly after the dawn prayer.  Two explosions could be heard after the barrage coming from inside the base.

 

US forces later acknowledged the attack but revealed no other details about it.  It was the first time in two months that the American forces admitted an attack had taken place on the facility.

 

Ar-Ramadi.

 

US troops burn down 13 local shops in downtown ar-Ramadi Wednesday evening offering no explanation.

 

In a dispatch posted at pm Makkah time Thursday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that US occupation troops set fire to 13 shops full of all their contents in the middle of ar-Ramadi on Wednesday evening without offering any reason for the arson.

 

The ar-Ramadi correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that occupation troops set 13 shops ablaze, including food stores and electronics stores but gave no explanation.  The Americans also prevented the owners of the stores and the fire department from extinguishing the fire or recovering the goods that still remained intact inside the shops.
