Further, the group states: ?We bring the goods news to the Muslims in this country and outside that the mujahideen are in good condition with very high morale. Their operations are getting bigger, at the same time our enemy had reached a stage of collapse after they got help from all its allies, and had no more to stop the mujahideen from their hits.?
