Association of Muslim Scholars : "dozens killed" in massive US bombing on Arab Jabbur thursday
The Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) on Thursday denounced the massive US bombing attack on areas west of ‘Arab Jabbur earlier in the day.
The AMSI declaration said that “US occupation forces, using B-1 war planes, bombed the ‘Arab Jabbur area at dawn Thursday, dropping 40,000-pound (18.100kg) bombs on pretexts that we have tired of hearing because of their falseness and mendacity, namely their ‘war on terror.’”
The AMSI statement continued: “The bombing was entirely targeted on homes of residents in the area and resulted in the deaths of dozens of innocent civilians, including women, children, and elderly people, in addition to wounding a comparable number.”
“This dastardly crime clearly demonstrates to the whole world the ugliness of those who committed it,” the statement went on.  “It shows that they are totally unconcerned about people’s lives and do not care for the honor and esteem accorded to human beings in all divinely inspired religions.”
“The Association of Muslim Scholars denounces this dastardly crime and holds the occupation and the present government entirely responsible for it.  It believes that they are the ones who fit the description of terrorists in all meanings and implications of the word.  AMSI calls on the international community, the League of Arab States, and all human rights organizations in the world to emerge from their circle of murderous silence and to take up the role – at the very least – of making a stand in the face of the criminals who committed these acts.”

Sectarian murder spree continues : three more bodies found dumped around Baghdad
In a dispatch posted at 7:15pm Baghdad time Friday night, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the puppet forces of the “Iraqi Ministry of the Interior” recovered the bodies of three more victims of sectarian violence that had been dumped in various parts of Baghdad on Friday.

Puppet forces arrest 75 in blockade, raids on as-Sayyidiyah district of Baghdad
In a dispatch posted at 6:26pm Baghdad time Friday evening, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that Iraqi puppet regime troops rounded up and arrested about 75 civilian residents of the as-Sayyidiyah neighborhood of Baghdad.  Puppet so-called al-Husam Brigade troops have kept the area blockaded for about four days during which time they shouted sectarian abuse at them.
The AMSI reported residents of as-Sayyidiyah as saying that the al-Husam Brigades arrested about 75 of the local residents.  They said that the neighborhood had been sealed off for four days and that no food had been allowed in, resulting in a shortage of vegetables. 
Residents reported that the puppet al-Husam Brigades left open only one passage into and out of the neighborhood – that being the road near the al-Jadiriyah Bridge where sectarian militias are congregated.  The al-Husam Brigade troops also apparently set fire to several abandoned houses belonging to known enemies of the US occupation.

Resistance group denounces US bombing strikes on Arab Jabbur thursday for "targeting civilians"
In a dispatch posted at 3pm Baghdad time Friday afternoon, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the Resistance coalition known as the Front of Jihad and Change had issued Communiqué No. 11 in which it denounced the US attack on Iraqi civilians in which American F-1 strategic bombers and F-16 fighter bombers blasted areas to the west of ‘Arab Jabbur on Thursday.
Yaqen reported the communiqué as affirming that the attack, in which the US employed 40,000-pound bombs, targeted civilians.  The statement said that the massive American assault also served to refute US claims that the Resistance had been put down and that everything in Iraq had been made “stable” for the American occupation.
The Front of Jihad and Change declared that such attacks would only serve to increase their conviction that the path of jihad and resistance is the only way forward and that the US enemy understands no language other than that of force and weapons.

Another witness said “clashes between the raiding soldiers and armed men from the area took place and lasted for more than half an hour.  The clashes, however, inflicted no casualties on either side.
