The Mujahideen Shura Council Claims Responsibility for Bombings Targeting American and Iraqi Forces in Tal Afar, al-Mosul and Samarra
By SITE Institute
May 18, 2006

The Mujahideen Shura Council issued five communiqués amongst several today, May 18, 2006, claiming responsibility for attacks Sunday, May 14, including the firing of rockets and detonation of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on American and Iraq patrols and vehicles in Tal Afar, al-Mosul and Samarra Bridge, and a bombing an American foot patrol in the area of al-Intisar in al-Mosul, allegedly killing two.

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.
