The Battle of Wadi Al-Batin or Battle of Ruqi Pocket took place before the beginning of the Desert Storm operations on 16 February 1991. This is not to be confused with the "Battle of Wadi Al-Batin" which was fought later in the four-day ground war between elements of the U.S. 3rd Armored Division and the Iraqi Republican Guard.

  • La bataille de Hafar Al-Batin est livrée du 15 au 20 février 1991 pendant la guerre du Golfe. L'engagement visait à faire croire aux Irakiens que l'attaque des forces de la Coalition se produirait à Hafar Al-Batin, route d'invasion naturelle de l'Irak alors que le gros de l'attaque du VIIe Corps américain se fera en réalité plus à l'ouest.
  • L'inganno del Wadi al-Batin (vallata vicino alla città araba di Hafar al-Batin) o battaglia di Ruqi Pocket venne attuato il 16 febbraio 1991 precedentemente l'operazione Desert Storm. Essa non è da confondere con la vera battaglia dello Wadi al-Batin combattuta nei giorni dell'invasione terrestre tra elementi della 3ª Divisione corazzata americana e le forze irachene della Guardia repubblicana. Gli iracheni si convinsero che l'attacco principale sarebbe giunto proprio dal Wadi al-Batin e concentrarono così le loro forze nella zona, sul confine tra Iraq e Arabia Saudita.

This is not to be confused with the "Battle of Wadi Al-Batin" which was fought later in the four-day ground war between elements of the U.S. 3rd Armored Division and the Iraqi Republican Guard. Iraqis thought that Coalition forces were prepping the Wadi Al-Batin for the main attack. The desired effect was that the Iraqis would think that the main coalition ground attack would come up the Wadi Al Batin, a natural invasion route, and they would therefore reinforce their forces there, at the expense of the Western flank, where VII Corps would conduct the main attack.
