The Jihad Information Brigade issued a statement today, October 19, 2005, containing the statistics of American military equipment losses in Iraq from the period between April and September 2005, collected from the statements of five insurgency groups in Iraq, including al-Qaeda in Iraq and Ansar al-Sunnah Army. The group indicates that these statistics seek to ?humiliate these American idiots and their cowardly helpers, and to reveal their media lies?.
According to the statistics, which include 1,300 total reported losses, nearly half of this number is from destroyed Hummers (729), followed by armored vehicles (170), and ?vehicles? (98). The Jihad Information Brigade claims that the actual number of losses is higher, as the ?difficulty in getting all the issued reports? has dampened their figures.
