The Mujahideen Shura Council issued five communiqués amongst several today, March 7, 2006, claiming responsibility for bombing operations executed between Saturday, March 4, and yesterday, targeting ?Crusader? vehicles and barracks, and Iraqi police in al-Mosul, Behrez, Samarra, and Baquba. The group also issued a fifty-two second video today that depicts the detonation of an improvised explosive device (IED) on an American Humvee in south Baghdad.
The Mujahideen Shura Council is composed of seven insurgency groups in Iraq: al-Qaeda in Iraq, Victorious Army Group, the Army of al-Sunnah Wal Jama?a, 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.
