US Military Escalates the War by Bombing Civilian Areas

This is a clear illustration of the desperation of the Bush administration. Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of people in the US and the world oppose the war and its escalation, the regime continues to engage in such atrocious hostilities. Such actions will only intensify the resentment of the Iraqi people and the international community against the American government. This is why the peace movement in the US is so vital to show the world that we do not support Bush and his genocidal policies in the Middle-East.

Tuesday 30 August 2005 11:22 AM GMT

Al-Qaim has been struck by US air strikes before

At least 47 people have been killed in two US-led air strikes
in the western Iraqi town of Al-Qaim near the Syrian border,
a Qaim hospital official says.

Muhammad al-Aani said 35 people died in one house and another
12 in a strike on a second house.

Earlier, the US military said it had killed an al-Qaida
fighter named Abu Islam and a number of other fighters in air
strikes on Karabila, close to Al-Qaim.

The US military gave no details of the total number of
casualties.

According to the US statement, four bombs were used to
destroy a house occupied by "terrorists" outside Husaybah.

Two more bombs destroyed a second house in Husaybah, occupied
by Abu Islam, the statement added.

"Islam and several other suspected terrorists were killed in
that attack," the statement said, adding that the strikes
began about 6.20am.

The statement said intelligence reports indicated several of
Islam's associates fled his house in Husaybah for the nearby
town of Karabilah.

"Around 8.30am, a strike was conducted on the house in
Karabilah using two precision-guided bombs," the statement
said.

"Several terrorists were killed in the strike but exact
numbers are not known."
