Ansar al-Sunnah issued a statement today, January 25, 2006, announcing that false statements have been made in their name by the Kurdish Peshmerga and Shi?ite al-Ghadr Brigade, and assures that only communiqués delivered via their secure channels are to be considered official and true. The group refers to an alleged claim that they were responsible for the assassination of two students of al-Mosul University and they state this fabrication was made with the intention to ?tarnish the reputation of the mujahideen in the city and other places.?
According to the message: ?our mujahideen are spread all over the city of al-Mosul and their operations are continuous. Every day we issue statements of all the operations that we execute and we publish it all over the world through the Internet by our correspondent brother?.
