Key bridge, connecting Basra city to Al-Kurnah is destroyed by Mahdi Army.

I say, if the geneva convention doesnt apply to resistance fighters, it should neither apply to occupational forces of an aggresive nation.

Since when has it applied to captured US troops? They never have followed the Geneva Conventions since Day One going back to the First Gulf War.

Capture, torture, execute, repeat.
