On the first day of the Eid Al-Fitr, there was a relative calm in most of the residential districts in many regions of Anbar. However, in Fallujah and Al-Garma, military operations are continuing and a number of Fallujah's districts and Road 40 in the center have been shelled. A medical source at the Fallujah General Hospital has confirmed that 4 residents have been killed and 11 others wounded by the shelling.
In Al-Garma, the military campaign is in its third day, and a military operation by the Iraqi army supported by the Iraqi air force has been bombarding particular targets and some residential districts within Al-Garma. Many homes have been severely damaged. Also for the third day, the plan to penetrate into the town has been thwarted by the fierce resistance of the gunmen. This morning's casualty figures show that 3 members of one family have been killed and 7 others have been wounded.
Late last night, parts of the Al-Qa'im township on the Syrian border were bombarded; 8 residents were killed and 11 others were wounded. The bombardment also targeted a number of outlying villages in the border area.
