The Telegraph reports on increased fighting between Iraqi insurgents and foreign jihadists in Western Iraq:
American troops on the Syrian border are enjoying a battle they have long waited to see – a clash between foreign al-Qa’eda fighters and Iraqi insurgents.
Tribal leaders in Husaybah are attacking followers of Abu Musab Zarqawi, the Jordanian-born terrorist who established the town as an entry point for al-Qa’eda jihadists being smuggled into the country.
The reason, the US military believes, is frustration at the heavy-handed approach of the foreigners, who have kidnapped and assassinated local leaders and imposed a strict Islamic code.
