BAGHDAD (Reuters) – A mortar attack caused Tuesday night’s fire at a U.S. ammunition dump in southern Baghdad that sparked a barrage of explosions that continued to shake the capital on Wednesday morning, a U.S. military spokesman said.

“It was a mortar round,” Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Withington, spokesman for the U.S. 4th Infantry Division, told Reuters.

The Islamic Army in Iraq, one of a number of militant groups operating in the country, claimed responsibility for the attack.

“The Islamic Army … (launched) rockets and mortar bombs … at a base for the occupying American forces,” said the statement signed by the group and posted on a Web site often used by Islamist militants.

Withington said there were no reports of casualties among the soldiers on the base or Iraqi civilians in neighboring districts.

Another report from Al Bawaba.com

Resistance fighters hit an ammunition dump on a U.S. base in Baghdad with a mortar round, setting off fiery explosions through the night that shook buildings miles away, while renewed attacks killed at least 14 people, primarily in the capital.

 

The mortar round set fire to an ammunition holding area, where material is kept temporarily before distribution to the units at Falcon. He said more than three battalions were stationed there at the time of the attack but he would not give a specific number of troops.

 

Firefighters and hazardous material experts continued Wednesday to put out the blaze, while engineers and explosive ordinance specialists were to begin the clearance of unexploded ordinance. Falcon is located in a former commercial trucking depot in a sprawling industrial area at the southern entrance of Baghdad.

 

Meanwhile, the corpses of seven people were turned in to the morgue in the southern city of Kut, according to the AP. Among the 14 overall dead in attacks, five people were killed in three separate car bombings in Baghdad, while gunmen also shot and killed a policeman in the capital. Another policeman was shot dead in the northern city of Kirkuk, while a civilian died in a roadside bombing on a highway in the north.

 

In other incidents, three U.S. Marines and two troops died in fighting in Iraq, the U.S. command said Wednesday. The Marines died Monday from enemy action in Iraq’s western Anbar province, the military said in a statement.

Also Monday, a U.S. soldier was killed when his patrol was attacked by insurgents in an eastern part of Baghdad, the military said. The second soldier, attached to the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade, died of wounds from an explosion during a vehicle patrol Sunday north of the city of Tikrit.

This is how Iraqi Resistance reported ammunition depot destruction.

Baghdad.

Iraqi Resistance rockets blast into biggest American arsenal in Iraq setting off unprecedented explosions, illuminating Baghdad sky just before midnight Tuesday.

In a dispatch posted at 12:30am Makkah time Wednesday morning, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a short while earlier Iraqi Resistance forces had attacked and blown up the largest US weapons arsenal depot in the American General Headquarters in the south of Baghdad. The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the arsenal, located in the as-Saqr Base in the south of Baghdad is the main supplier of equipment to the US forces. It came under Resistance rocket attack late on Tuesday night.

At the time of reporting, mountains of American arms and ammunition were continuing to explode in the sky in a huge fire unprecedented in Baghdad’s history. In response, US aircraft hysterically rocketed and bombed various parts of the city, the correspondent reported, trying to knock out the launch sites of the rockets that blasted into the American arsenal. A source in the Iraqi puppet regime told Mafkarat al-Islam that the Resistance blasted the American arsenal, known as Camp Falcon, with Grad and Katyusha rockets.

The source admitted that dozens of Americans had been killed or wounded in the blasts that were still ripping the American arsenal apart. The source said that the US forces were unable to do anything to stop the massive inferno of flame and explosions that was lighting up the Baghdad sky like fireworks. Reuters reported the puppet regime’s “Iraqiyah” television network as showing pictures of a huge fire lighting up the night sky. Reuters reporters in central Baghdad heard more than 30 explosions, which began at about 11pm local time Tuesday night.

The puppet “Iraqi Interior Ministry” said the explosions had rocked three neighborhoods close to Forward Operating Base Falcon in the southern Baghdad suburb of ad-Durah.
