Resistance announces “helicopter massacre”

The downing of two Black Hawk and one Apache helicopter near al-Fallujah on Monday night

In a dispatch posted at 11:06am Makkah time Tuesday morning, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that Iraqi Resistance fighters carried out what amounts to a “helicopter massacre” on Monday night, shooting down three US aircraft in the area of al-Karmah, 7km east of al-Fallujah. The downing came shortly after Resistance fighters brought down a US F-16 fighter-bomber with a Strela rocket in the same general vicinity at 1:30pm Monday afternoon.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported residents of the Ibrahim ibn ‘Ali district as saying that the Resistance mounted their assault on the American aircraft in retaliation for the massacre committed by US aircraft when they first struck two civilian homes and then attacked the funeral service for the villagers killed in the first raid on Thursday, 23 November.

So on Monday night Resistance fighters shot down two Black Hawk and one Apache helicopter, bringing them all down with Strela (SAM-1) rockets in what was dubbed the “helicopter massacre.” The downing was announced in a communiqué published on the Internet by two Iraqi Resistance organizations – the Army of the Mujahideen and the Mujahideen Shura Council – who also claimed responsibility for bringing down the F-16 on Monday afternoon.

Some news services reported the news of the downing of the helicopters as “unconfirmed” and the US military denied that any had been lost. But the Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent found a large number of witnesses who related the details of the shooting down of the three American choppers.
