In a dispatch posted at 5:39GMT Tuesday, Quds Press reported that a source at ar-Ramadi General Hospital had said that his institution had received 30 bodies of Iraqis killed by an American air strike on a village near ar-Ramadi, 110km west of Baghdad on Monday.

 

The hospital source, who asked to remain anonymous, told Quds Press that all the victims were civilians who had been killed when American aircraft blasted the homes of Muhammad Zaydan Farhan and his brother ‘Awwad Zaydan Farhan in the al-Bu ‘Ithah village in the al-Jazirah area near ar-Ramadi.

 

The source said that 13 of the dead were children and 14 were women.  In addition to the 30 people killed there were others who were wounded in the American raid.

 

Eyewitnesses said that the attack took place on Monday afternoon and that US aircraft totally destroyed the two houses.  The bodies were dug out from under the rubble.  The witnesses said there was no reason for the sudden American attack.

 

For its part the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI), the supreme Sunni Muslim religious authority in occupied Iraq, denounced the American air raid and the “criminal massacre” it produced, saying that it showed the world the savagery of the US occupation, which targets women and children for no reason whatsoever.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported eyewitnesses as saying that the shells balsted into the headquarters, setting off explosions and sending plumes of smoke billowing into the sky from inside.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees: at least 600 Palestinians have been killed in Iraq.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported Antonio Gutierrez, the head of the UNHCR as responding to a question at a press conference at the UN headquarters in al-Manamah, the capital of Bahrain, by saying that the Palestinians are “hanging” in Iraq where they are targeted by some of the militias.  The UN official said that 600 Palestinians had been killed.

 

Gutierrez said tat the total number of Palestinians in Iraq is now about 15,000, most of them living in Baghdad, as compared with 30,000 who used to live in Iraq before the American invasion.

 

Last month the UN official accused the Iraqi puppet police of carrying out campaigns of raids in Palestinian neighborhoods of Baghdad, noting on that occasion that at least one Palestinian had been killed and five others arrested.  A UNHCR spokesman in Geneva expressed the organization’s “intense concern” over the campaign being waged by the Iraqi puppet security forces against Palestinian refugees in Iraq, noting that after that latest incident at least 41 Palestinians packed up and left Baghdad to camp out by the Syrian border rather than remain targets for pro-Iranian sectarian militias as they have now been for months.

The correspondent for AMSI reported that the attack by the puppet security men and their sectarian militia allies took place before the eyes of pro-American Kurdish separatist Peshmergah militia deployed in the area, who did nothing to stop the random attack.

The witnesses said that the victim hurried happily to pick up the can and then slammed it into the ground.  The can exploded, killing the youth on the spot.
