Today, March 10, 2005, al-Qaeda in Iraq, the Jihad Organization in the Country of the Two Rivers, issued a communiqué claiming responsibility for the murder of Lieutenant Colonel Ahmed Abeis, the chief of al-Salhiyah police station. The cabal sought ?the Lt. Colonel in the domestic intelligence that used to interrogate the holy warriors and hurt them.?
In the southwestern Baghdad neighborhood of al-Sayidiyah, al-Qaeda in Iraq members constructed a fake check point and according to communiqué, upon checking the identification card of Lt. Col. Abeis, the ?holy warriors showered him with a rain of bullets and killed him.?
