The villagers immediately sent an SOS to their brotherly resistance fighters to topple this cowardly assault.
In fact, it did not take the Resistence more than half an hour to mobilize from all directions. While Al-Mahdy militiamen were besieging the village and heavily pounding them with different types of rockets and mortar guns, the Resistence fighters had tightened on the assailants and a fierce fighting erupted between the two sides.
The Resistence fighters killed around 20 militiamen and the remaining fleed the scene with the support of a conspiring police unit who helped them retreat to Baghdad.
