A 3:24 minute video issued today, January 16, 2006, by the Islamic Army in Iraq depicts rocket attacks executed by the group?s brigade of Sa?ad bin Abi Waqas upon American targets. Seen are two masked mujahids preparing rockets for launch in a forested area, followed by the firing of projectiles in a different area at unseen targets. The final piece of footage in the video is a night-vision shot of addition rocket launchings.
A statement included with the video alleges that the attacks ?terrified Allah?s enemies and its gatherings were seen fleeing its posts.?
