The Mujahideen Shura Council issued six communiqués today, January 19, 2006, claiming responsibility for several assassinations, including the director of Abu Ghraib Hospital, allegedly also a leader in al-Ghadr Brigade, two ?Crusaders? agents? in al-Zera?a, and an Iraqi intelligence figure west of Baghdad, in addition to detonating improvised explosive devices (IED?s) on a ?Crusaders? convoy? yesterday in Ameriyat al-Fallujah and last Friday on a Humvee. The group also claims responsibility for bombing a military camp in al-Sayediya yesterday with mortar shells.
The Mujahideen Shura Council, according to their statement of establishment, is composed of six insurgency groups in Iraq: al-Qaeda in Iraq, Victorious Army Group, Ansar al-Tawhid Brigades, Islamic Jihad Brigades, the Strangers Brigades, and the Horrors Brigades, collaborating to meet the ?unbelievers gathering with different sides? and defend Islam.
