Iraqi civilians are rising up against Saddam Hussein's militia in Baghdad and Basra, the country's two largest cities, according to various news reports.
Sources in Baghdad were reporting citizen uprisings against the Fedayeen Saddam, Kuwait News Agency said Monday.
Senior Defense Department officials told Fox News that "we know very little" about the reports. "We can say as a general principal that Iraqis are coming forward" throughout the country to fight the regime, but as for Baghdad specifically, "we have very little significant information."
The uprisings came as coalition forces continued their aerial assault on Baghdad Monday afternoon, hours after U.S. troops barreled through the heart of the Iraqi capital just after dawn in a dramatic show of force designed to prove the coalition can enter the city with impunity.
