The Mujahideen Shura Council Claims Responsibility For a Car Bomb in Baghdad, and Attacks on American and Iraqi troops in Fallujah, Baghdad, Heet, and Ramadi
By SITE Institute
May 11, 2006

The Mujahideen Shura Council issued twelve communiqués amongst nearly two dozen today, May 11, 2006, in which they claim responsibility for attacks on American and Iraqi forces, including police patrols and vehicles. The group executed attacks with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and a car bomb in Baghdad, and surrounding areas.

Among these messages are claims for killing over a dozen Americans and National Guard members, including the sniping of a member of American intelligence; detonating IEDs against Humvees in the al-Ameriya region of Baghdad; and exploding a car bomb against American foot patrols and guards in several areas of Baghdad.

The Mujahideen Shura Council is composed of eight insurgency groups in Iraq: al-Qaeda in Iraq, Victorious Army Group, the Army of al-Sunnah Wal Jama?a, Jama?a al-Murabiteen, 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.

A translation of the twelve messages is provided to our Intel Service members.
