On March 22, 2005, a third statement by the group, Jund Al-Sham (Soldiers of Levant) was posted on the internet.
In this statement, the group questions the protests in Qatar that followed the deadly suicide operation, carried out in Qatar on March 19, 2005 and calls for further attacks on western targets.
In order to gain popular support, the group asks the people of Qatar, ?Why do you not demonstrate when Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was killed or the catastrophe of Abu Ghraib, and other jails, and the demolition of houses of innocent people, and killing women and children, and destroying of mosques and disgrace it, capturing of women and raping them, also the men from the army of freedom, peace and democracy, where were you worshippers of evil??
The group then goes on to instruct its followers to carry out attacks on ?military bases, churches, and prevent them from entering the mosques by suicidal operation? and finally warns, ?Kill the infidels wherever you find them.?
