The Victorious Army Group Denies Claims by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense that the Executors of the Groupís Bombing Operation in Baghdad was Arrested
By SITE Institute
December 16, 2005

In a statement issued today, December 16, 2005, the Victorious Army Group [Jeish al-Ta'eifa al-Mansoura] denies claims made by a spokesman of the Iraqi Ministry of Defense to the al-Arabiya Arabic channel that the Iraqi government forces arrested the executors of the group?s bombing operation targeting the Green Zone and American embassy in Baghdad yesterday. According to the message, this is a government lie carrying the purpose of deluding people, and making them believe in their ?achievements so as to decrease the blows of the mujahideen who broke their back.?

The group states that the attack employed long-range missiles, not mortar shells as claimed by the Ministry of Defense. Further, they claim that the bombers who executed the operation returned safe and ?they are in Allah?s care waiting to win one of the best things, victory or martyrdom.?

A translation of the statement is provided to our Intel Service members.
