IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Berlin, April 15, IRNA -- Some Germany-based American soldiers who 
only recently arrived at their home military bases in Germany after 
completing a one-year-long deployment in Iraq, have been told to head 
back to the war-stricken country, the website of the European edition 
of the US military daily Stars and Stripes said Thursday. 
US soldiers of the 1st Armored Division, headquartered in the 
southwest German city of Wiesbaden, as well as the 2nd Army Brigade, 
located in the southwest German town of Baumholder, have been ordered 
back into the combat zone, according to the report. 
The recall occurs as US military officials are finalizing plans 
to shore up forces in Iraq in a desperate effort to quell down the 
Iraqi people`s uprising. 
American-led troops have encountered fierce resistance over the 
past week around the Iraqi town of Fallujah as well as in the 
Shiite-controlled areas in South Central Iraq.
