Zionist Mossad increasing presence in western Iraq, tribal leader reports.


In a dispatch posted on its website Saturday, Quds Press reported that the head of the Union of Tribes of Western Iraq in the area of the Upper Euphrates near the Syrian border had disclosed that the "Israeli" Mossad had increased its presence in those areas, beginning two months ago.  He said that US forces are extending protection to the Mossad’s cars and headquarters in the area.


Shaykh Ahmad al-Khanjar, the Chairman of the Union of Tribes of Western Iraq, an organization of 13 Iraqi tribes, told Quds Press that four-wheel-drive GMC cars belonging to the Mossad are present in the areas of al-Hadithah and nearby al-Haqlaniyah, 'Anah, al-Qa’im, Jubbah, and other villages.  He said that the "Israelis" have been there for several months under American protection.


The Mossad men, al-Khanjar said, wear civilian clothing (some of them including yarmulkes) and travel around western Iraq under American guard.  He said that the Mossad operatives stay in the headquarters that the Americans have set up in the old Customs Building near the Syrian border, in the former Iraqi Army Camp in the area of al-Baghdadi, about 200km northwest of Baghdad, and at the phosphate mining complex.


Shaykh al-Khanjar said that they have also established their own headquarters similar to the facilities used by the American occupation forces.  The Mossad set up one of its headquarters in the former Hafsah Primary School in al-Qa’im on the Syrian border, and in the large building that formerly housed the headquarters of the "Projects for Roads, Bridges, and Travelers’ Rest Stops."  The Zionists have surrounded their facilities with large security fortifications and barbed wire, making it virtually impossible to break in.  They have also set up communication towers atop those headquarters.  In addition, the Shaykh said, they have recruited Iraqis willing to work for them inside the city.


Shaykh al-Khanjar said that the Mossad operatives come out of their headquarters every day, making three rounds outside the city accompanied by US escort vehicles.  He said that local people were certain that the Mossad agents’ mission was of a non-combat character, consisting of espionage and gathering information.  Shaykh al-Khanjar said that the Iraqi Resistance attacked them on 17 July, destroying one of their vehicles and killing four of the people inside.  After the attack it became clear from the papers and documents on the men that they were members of the "Israeli" Mossad.




Sectarian murder spree continues: 10 more bodies found dumped around Baghdad Saturday.


In a dispatch posted at 10:15pm Baghdad time Saturday night, the Aswat al-'Iraq news agency, which was set up by Reuters and the U.N. Development Agency, reported that the Iraqi puppet police had recovered the bodies of 10 more victims of sectarian murder that had been dumped in various parts of Baghdad during the previous 24 hours.


Aswat al-'Iraq reported a source in the puppet "Iraqi Interior Ministry" who asked to remain anonymous, as sayig that most of the bodies were found in the central Baghdad district of al-Karakh.  All had been shot to death.


Ban imposed on motor traffic in Baghdad starting Saturday afternoon.


In a dispatch posted at 6:35pm Makkah time Saturday afternoon, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the Iraqi puppet regime imposed a ban on motor traffic until further notice in Baghdad and the suburbs.


Mafkarat al-Islam reported that official television announced the decree banning cars and trailers used by local people for selling goods and all sorts of transport.  Motorcycles are also covered by the ban, which took effect at 6pm local time Saturday afternoon and was to remain in force until further notice.


Regime spokesman Brigadier General Qasim al-Musawi announced the ban, which he explained as being intended to "protect the citizens" during the season in which the Shi'ah make pilgrimage visits to the tombs of their Imams.  The Shi'i festival of "Visitations in the Month of Sha'ban" occurs on Wednesday, 29 August this year.  On that day, thousands of Shi'ah travel to Karbala’ to pay their respects to the tombs in that city.


Special flight of clergymen arrives in Iraq to raise US troops’ sagging morale.


In a dispatch posted on its website Saturday, Quds Press reported that in an effort to raise the sagging morale of US troops in Iraq, the US had sent a delegation of five leading Christian clergymen to Iraq.


Quds Press reported that the five clergymen are to travel around Iraq for several days, meeting the troops and trying to improve their spirits.  'Ali Sa'dun, an official who works in the arrival section of Saddam International Airport, told Quds Press that the religious leaders’ tour, which began with their arrival on Thursday, was ordered by US President George Bush with the aim of raising morale and encourage them to continue fighting.


Sa 'dun said that a special airplane landed at the airport and they were then transported to the US embassy in the top-security area around the Republican Palace in Baghdad – the walled district that the Americans have dubbed the "Green Zone."  The move comes following news reports that the suicide rate for US troops in Iraq had risen 15 percent over last year.


Car bomb explodes in al-Kazimiyah area of Baghdad midday Saturday.


In a dispatch posted at 1:55pm Baghdad time Saturday afternoon, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that a short while earlier a car bomb had exploded near al-'Urubah Square in al-Kazimiyah.  Eyewitnesses said that the area was crowded with stores and shoppers and that the casualty toll was likely to be high.


In a report posted at 4:47pm Makkah Time Saturday, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that at least seven people were killed and 30 more wounded when a car bomb that had been parked in the predominantly Shi'i district.


US admits death of prisoner in prison camp near Baghdad Friday.


In a dispatch posted at 1:40pm Baghdad time Saturday afternoon, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that an Iraqi being held prisoner had died "of disease" at the US prison Camp Cropper near Saddam International Airport just outside of Baghdad.


The AMSI reported a US statement as saying that one of the prisoners there died after noon on Friday.  A preliminary medical examination, the report said, determined the cause of death to be severe kidney failure.


The US occupation forces have about 19,000 people locked up in three prison camps.  Many of those held in Camp Cropper are officials of the Iraqi government overthrown by the American invasion in spring 2003.  The other two major American prison camps are Camp Bucca located in the Umm Qasr area south of al-Basrah near the border with Kuwait, and Camp Susah located in as-Sulaymaniyah Province in northeastern Iraq.

Bomb explodes by US patrol southeast of al-Kut Saturday morning.


In a dispatch posted at 6:06pm Baghdad time Saturday afternoon, the Aswat al-'Iraq news agency, which was set up by Reuters and the U.N. Development Agency, reported that a bomb exploded by a US patrol as it drove along the main road southeast of al-Kut, about 180km south of Baghdad before noon Saturday.


Aswat al-'Iraq reported residents of the al-Fallahin neighborhood where the attack took place as saying that the explosion of the bomb, which had been planted at the edge of the main road to al-Kut, inflicted no damage or casualties.


The witness said that the American troops responded to the blast by shooting indiscriminately around the area but no one was wounded by the US gunfire either.


US helicopter kills two civilians in al-Kut.


In a dispatch posted at 2:36pm Baghdad time Saturday afternoon, the Aswat al-'Iraq news agency, which was set up by Reuters and the U.N. Development Agency, reported that US forces killed two local civilians after a group of pro-Iranian Shi'i sectarian Jaysh al-Mahdi gunmen opened fire on US troops carrying out an airborne landing to the west of al-Kut, 180km south of Baghdad.


Aswat al-'Iraq reported residents of the al-Jihad neighborhood to the southwest of al-Kut as saying that "gunmen belonging to the Jaysh al-Mahdi frustrated an airborne landing of US forces in the at-Ta’mim area late Friday night."  One witness said that a US helicopter landed four troops in the al-Jihad neighborhood but quickly had to withdraw them after they came under heavy gunfire from the Jaysh al-Mahdi sectarian militia.


The witness said that the US helicopter returned fire in the direction of the Jaysh al-Mahdi, but killed two civilians.


Aswat al-'Iraq reported that the al-Jihad neighborhood is densely populated and is separated from the US Camp Delta by the al-Gharraf River and the main road that runs from al-Kut to the al-Ahrar area.  The neighborhood is frequently the scene of clashes between US troops and the Jaysh al-Mahdi Shi'i sectarian militia, which is attempting to step into the shoes of the American occupation forces when they leave Iraq.
