• US Marines Fighting in Umm Qasr, Iraq 2003

    Umm Qasr (Arabic: أم قصر‎), is a port city in southern Iraq. It stands on the canalised Khawr az-Zubayr, part of the Khawr Abd Allah estuary which leads to the Persian Gulf. It is separated from the border of Kuwait by a small inlet. A bridge across the waterway linked the port with Kuwait prior to the 1991 Persian Gulf War. The Battle of Umm Qasr was the first military confrontation in the Iraq War. At the start of the war one of the first objectives was the port of Umm Qasr. On March 21, 2003, allied forces advanced across Southern Iraq and after an amphibious landing forces captured the new port area of Umm Qasr. They then spent several more days fighting through the old town of Umm Qasr encountering fierce resistance. The assault on the town's port was spearheaded by Royal Marine...

Umm Qasr (Arabic: أم قصر‎), is a port city in southern Iraq. It stands on the canalised Khawr az-Zubayr, part of the Khawr Abd Allah estuary which leads to the Persian Gulf. It is separated from the border of Kuwait by a small inlet. A bridge across the waterway linked the port with Kuwait prior to the 1991 Persian Gulf War. The Battle of Umm Qasr was the first military confrontation in the Iraq War. At the start of the war one of the first objectives was the port of Umm Qasr. On March 21, 2003, allied forces advanced across Southern Iraq and after an amphibious landing forces captured the new port area of Umm Qasr. They then spent several more days fighting through the old town of Umm Qasr encountering fierce resistance. The assault on the town's port was spearheaded by Royal Marines of the British 3 Commando Brigade supplemented by Marines of the US 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit and Polish GROM troops. However, Iraqi forces put up unexpectedly strong resistance requiring several days' fighting before the area was cleared of defenders.[4] After the waterway was de-mined by a detachment from HM-14 and Naval Special Clearance Team ONE of the U.S. Navy and reopened, Umm Qasr played an important role in the shipment of humanitarian supplies to Iraqi civilians.[5] The port was declared safe and reopened on March 25, 2003, after Royal Marines took over control of the port and conducted raids into the old part of town.

Mid shot ceremony with USAID poster 18. Mid shot Olsen talking to head of port 19. Various Olsen and party boarding ship 20. Wide shot port STORYLINE: Iraq's only deep water port has reopened to commercial shipping, clearing the way for large-scale imports of consumer goods and the materials needed to repair its war-battered infrastructure. US officials said the opening of Umm Qasr on Monday followed dredging operations to clear the harbour of war wreckage, mainly from the eight-year Iran-Iraq war. Three people central to the port's reopening - southeast regional coordinator for the Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance, Ole Woehlers Olsen, USAID administrator, Andrew Nazios, and head of Umm Qasr port, Abdul Razak Hassan - officiated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The USAID administrator said the reopening of Umm Qasr symbolised the opening of Iraq to private investment and private sector economic growth. The port on the Kuwaiti border has received humanitarian shipments since March. On Sunday, Iraqi customs officials returned to duty after receiving two weeks training from British military units, allowing the port to officially open some of its 21 berths to commercial shipping. More than 50 uniformed customs officers, plainclothes officers and support staff have returned to duty, after receiving two weeks training from British military units stationed at Umm Qasr. Umm Qasr, a town of about 50-thousand people, was one of the first military objectives for coalition troops at the outbreak of war in March. British forces who took charge of the city handed it over to a civilian administration one month ago. The port's opening came two weeks after the Coalition Provisional Authority, the US-led interim civil administration in Iraq, suspended tariffs and trade restrictions on most goods entering or leaving the country, effectively making it a free-trade zone.

Soldiers with dogs entering train 11. Various of dogs sniffing inside train 12. SOUNDBITE: (English): Lieutenant Colonel Neil Peckham, British Army: "Traditionally trains have not been used for passenger services in any great way in Iraq because the fuel is so cheap and people prefer to travel by road. So I understand there are only six services a day out of Baghdad. But it is vital that we get the wagons rolling in terms of reconstruction material and foodstuff so that we can distribute it around the country." 13. Various of train driver getting onto train engine 14. Train guard waving flags 15. Driver starting train 16. Shot from driver's seat of train moving 17.

Before the US-led war damaged the tracks, trains used to run daily to Basra, Umm Qasr, Mosul and other destinations across the country. Wednesday's train is headed for the southern port of Umm Qasr. On board are US military personnel who are going to make sure the route is safe and that no further repairs need to be carried out. Hereafter, trains travelling between Umm Qasr and Baghdad will carry materials for the Iraq's reconstruction, as well as food supplies for distribution across the country. Coalition forces paid railway workers an emergency payment this week to ensure they continue to turn up for work. The US is still in the process of devising a regular system of payment, or salary for the workers.

Various of 4th Infantry Division troops getting on to a plane STORYLINE: As the United States hinted that as many as 120,000 more troops could to be deployed to Iraq, a massive convoy of US military vehicles, ammunition and troops was seen on Friday crossing the border from Kuwait into southern Iraq. News of the deployment came after the Iraqis promised their capital would become a graveyard for the coalition. As US officials admitted it could take months to defeat Saddam Hussein's regime, a British military spokesman said the southern Iraqi city of Basra is "clearly nowhere near" under control. There was no official confirmation from Washington about the 120,000 more troops reportedly being sent to the region, although the total is believed to include the 40,000 officially announced yesterday. The reinforcements are being sent after the Iraqis put up stiffer than expected resistance and prevented a smaller, fast-moving coalition force scoring a rapid walkover. Pentagon officials said there were only 90,000 troops currently in Iraq. At Fort Hood in Texas about 12,500 soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division began departing for duty in the Gulf. It is the first major element to move out from Fort Hood, the nation's largest military post. If the division sees combat, it will be the first time since Vietnam. The 4th Infantry Division is considered the Army's most modern heavy division, equipped with a sophisticated computer systems linking all its vehicles. The soldiers were supposed to deploy to Turkey in February to open a northern front against Iraq, but the Turkish government refused to grant access.

Sixty-seven tanker trucks queued to fill-up with water which will be delivered to the area's 70-thousand residents. The temporary pipeline will pump two (m) million litres of water daily, but the Royal Engineers are now working on the damaged municipal infrastructure in an attempt to restore water supplies to Iraqi homes. Meanwhile, British troops supervised the distribution of water to Iraqi civilians near Zubayr, south of Basra, on Monday. Several villages to the south of Basra, including Zubayr, Safwan and Jabjud, have been without regular supplies of electricity and water for more than a week. For the past week, British ground units have besieged Basra and attacked Iraqi defenders on the outskirts of the city to pressure them to surrender. Thousands of civilians have tried to flee the city for areas further from the fighting.

VOICED BY VERA FRANKL 0000 Wide shot of port 0004 Sign for port administration 0008 Various of port 0030 SOUNDBITE (English) Andrew Nazios, USAID administrator: 0038 Various activity at port 0046 Tug coming in to port 0050 Wide shot ships docked at port 0056 VISION ENDS STORYLINE: Iraq's only deep water port has re-opened to commercial shipping, clearing the way for large-scale imports of consumer goods and the materials needed to repair its war-battered infrastructure. VOICE OVER: 0002 The opening of the port at Umm Qasar followed operations to clear the harbour of war wreckage, mainly from the eight-year Iran-Iraq war, US officials said. 0011 It comes two weeks after the US-led interim civil administration, suspended tariffs and trade restrictions on most goods entering or leaving Iraq -- effectively making it a free-trade zone. 0023 The tariff break is designed to revive an economy ruined by years of sanctions and state-led trade policies. 0030 SOUNDBITE (English) Andrew Nazios, USAID administrator: "This is a symbolic event of the opening of Iraq to private investment and private sector economic growth." 0038 Umm Qasr, a town of about 50-thousand people, was one of the first military objectives for coalition troops at the outbreak of war in March. 0047 British forces who took charge of the city handed it over to a civilian administration a month ago.
