High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Battle of Nasiriyah was one of the first major battles of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Heavy fighting took place in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah between Iraqi forces and U.S. Marines over control of key bridges over the Euphrates River and the Saddam Canal. The battle began early on March 23 when a supply convoy of the U.S. Army took a wrong turn into the city and was ambushed. Eleven soldiers were killed and six soldiers, including Private Jessica Lynch, were captured. Some soldiers escaped the ambush. Forming a screen around their wounded, they fought off Iraqi counterattacks for several hours, until being rescued by the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade. After rescuing the soldiers who managed to escape the ambush, the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, under the call sign Task Force Tarawa, attacked north into the city, seizing two major bridges along "Ambush Alley". In heavy urban fighting, 18 Marines were killed including at least one Marine who was killed when A-10s mistakenly strafed a company of Marines north of the Saddam Canal.
