The Mujahideen Shura Council issued three communiqués amongst several today, June 2, 2006, claiming responsibility for the assassination of the Tal Afar police director, who was killed in an operation involving the bombing of an Iraqi convoy in al-Mosul; destroying a ?Crusader? minesweeper in al-Mosul on Wednesday, May 31; and ten operations in al-Mosul between May 26 and May 29, 2006, involving bombings and sniper fire targeting American, Iraqi, and Kurdish forces.
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.
