Over the last month, taking new steps in their escalation in order to save themselves from their disastrous situation and impasse in South Vietnam the U. S. aggressors have put into practice the so-called "rolling thunder plan" by carrying out repeated ferocious attacks against many North Vietnamese localities, among which Haiphong has been one of their main objectives.

They have wantonly bombed many populous quarters and economic establishments inside and outside the City. But they have met with a dense network of anti-aircraft fire of the army and people of Haiphong and have been duly punished.

Over the past forty days Haiphong has grown in strength in the fight and won victorious victories. From April 26, 1967 to October 11, 1967 the army and people of Haiphong shot down 161 U.S. airplanes and killed or captured many U.S. pilots.
