By SITE Institute
May 28, 2006

The Mujahideen Shura Council issued a communiqué yesterday, May 27, 2006, claiming responsibility for shooting down two ?Crusader? aircraft that day in the district of al-Radwaniya, west of Baghdad. According to media reports, an American helicopter crashed yesterday in al-Anbar governorate, western Iraq.

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.
