Ansar al-Sunnah issued a 2:23 minute video today, February 7, 2006, depicting the interrogation and ?confession? of Dera Muhammad Mahrous, a general in the Iraqi special forces, who is indicated to have been captured in Kirkuk, and sentenced to death by the group?s Shari?a Commission and subsequently executed. The group addresses those working beneath the general, stating: ?Few bullets took him down to hell. Repent and go back. May Allah forgive you.?
In addition, the group recently issued communiqués claiming responsibility for detonating improvised explosive devices (IED?s) in Tikrit and Samarra, targeting Iraqi police patrols.
