• 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...

US marines were reportedly told to expect light resistance at Umm Qasr when they landed at dawn on Friday. They were hoping to secure the port town within a few hours but still faced resistance more than two days later. Most Iraqi troops surrendered but a small group, thought to number 30 to 40, reportedly continued to put up a fight. The port is of strategic importance and coalition troops are hoping to use it for humanitarian shipments.

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.

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.

We are providing fresh drinking water to people which used to come from Basra and now thanks to the engineers they are getting some power which used to come from Basra. They are not dancing in the streets. They are not waving flags. They are not cheering because they are still not sure we are not going to go away. And Saddam Hussein still looms over them large, and until Saddam Hussein is taken away they will not come out and sing and dance and wave flags, and quite frankly I don't blame them." 12. Various, man attending control panels 13. Various, soldiers at plant STORYLINE: British military engineers restored electricity to the only town completely under coalition control in Iraq, Umm Qasr. Iraq's only deep water port had been without power and water since the invasion of Iraq began nearly two weeks ago. Water was restored on Monday. As of Tuesday, the town's electricity had been restored to 75 percent. British Commander Colonel Steve Cox, a Royal Marines officer who is the de facto military governor of Umm Qasr said that the muted response received by coalition troops in the south is due to a lingering fear that the coalition will leave and Saddam Hussein's forces will return and kill thousands in a repeat of what happened in 1991. Cox said that steps taken like providing security, water and electricity help to reassure Iraqis that coalition forces are there to help the population.

The bulk of the aid was donated by Britain, and military officials will soon fan into Iraqi villages to assess relief needs. Also Friday, two trucks of Kuwaiti aid arrived in the border town of Safwan. As during aid distribution on Wednesday, there was a near-riot as about 500 people engulfed the trucks, ripped open the cargo doors and emptied them of boxes of bottled water, cheese and other food in about 10-15 minutes. 00:02 Humanitarian workers fear a real tragedy in Iraq unless aid can get through soon to the civilian population. 00:08 UPSOUND Crowd 00:10 These chaotic scenes in southern Iraq could easily become a feature across the country. 00:15 Thousands of aid parcels were taken by the Kuwaiti Red Crescent to the town of Safwan. But British troops could only look on as the trucks were mobbed but desperate young men. 00:26 Residents in Safwan said they've been reduced to drinking muddy water out of ditches and puddles. 00:34 U.S. Navy dolphins have been enroled in efforts to help aid get delivered. Earlier this week two Iraqi mines were discovered in the channel leading to the port of Umm Qasr in the south, delaying the arrival of ships. Coalition generals have for a long time said opening the docks at Umm Qasr would enable a sea-borne relief operation. The mine-detecting dolphins have helped British and Australian divers clear a path. 01:05 The Sir Galahad, a British Royal Navy ship loaded with humanitarian supplies, has now been able to reach Umm Qasr port. Troops quickly went about unloading Sir Galahad's precious cargo. Around 300 tons of water, sugar, beans, and flour - now one step closer to the people who need it.

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.

Shot from platform of man waving goodbye from moving train STORYLINE: It's the first train to leave Baghdad station since the war - and a sign that Iraq is beginning to successfully rebuild its shattered infrastructure. 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.

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.

1. Various of tanks and gunfire 2. Wide shot smoke STORYLINE Coalition forces on Sunday continued to mop up small pockets of Iraqi resistance in the Umm Qasr seaport. US marines were reportedly told to expect light resistance at Umm Qasr when they landed at dawn on Friday. They were hoping to secure the port town within a few hours but still faced resistance more than two days later. Most Iraqi troops surrendered but a small group, thought to number 30 to 40, reportedly continued to put up a fight. The port is of strategic importance and coalition troops are hoping to use it for humanitarian shipments.

1. Various of trucks lined up on Kuwait City to Umm Qasr road 2. Various of loading, signs (in Arabic) "From the Kuwaiti people to the Iraqi people" 3. Covers put on trucks 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Kuwaiti official (name not given): "I think and understand very well the psychology of the Iraqi people. Our government and our people want to make sure they are involved in full to alleviate the suffering of the Iraqi people. I know there is a demand for people to give, it is all built on a new humanitarian necessity. I like to be neutral in my new job, so obviously that's the policy of the Kuwaiti government, this is the desire of the Kuwaiti people to be the first to help the Iraqis. To prove that we have no hard feelings." 5. Convoy moving off 6. Various of convoy on road during sandstorm STORYLINE: A seven-truck relief convoy loaded with food and water from Kuwait arrived in the Iraqi port of Umm Qasr on Wednesday as allied forces struggled to clear the way for more aid shipments. It was the first sizable relief convoy to reach Iraq. The convoy's progress was hampered by a severe sandstorm. It arrived in the dust-blown town 460 kilometres (280 miles) south of Baghdad with an escort from US marines. Umm Qasr was brought under coalition control on Tuesday following stiff resistance from Iraqi fighters. Plans to bring supplies to Iraqi civilians had been stalled for days because of fighting across southern Iraq. U.S. officials have blamed Saddam's regime for slowing the flow of aid by placing mines in Umm Qasr's harbour, which serves much of the south. U.S. Navy helicopters flew two dolphins into Umm Qasr to help locate mines. Umm Qasr is Iraq's main seaport on its short Gulf coastline, lies on the western side of the Fa Peninsula. It handled vessels bringing food and other necessities under the UN-administered oil-for-food programme. Coalition forces said they were reluctant to use heavy aerial bombardment to flatten the pockets of resistance for fear of destroying the port facilities, which they want to use to bring in humanitarian aid for southern Iraq.
