The Mujahideen Shura Council, in four communiqués amongst several issued within the past 24-hours, claims responsibility for a suicide bombing Friday on a house used by American forces as barracks in al-Karma, allegedly killing thirty-five ?infidels? and collecting their weapon following the operation; shooting down two American Apache helicopters in southern Baghdad between Tuesday March 7 and the next day; assassinating two ?converted? translators west of Baghdad yesterday; and destroying a ?Crusader? Humvee on the road of Shahraban by detonating an improvised explosive device (IED) on it yesterday.
In addition, the group issued a 1:09 minute video of detonating an IED on a ?converter?s? vehicle in Tal Afar.
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.
