Al-Qaeda in Iraq released its? ?good news? message to jihadist internet messageboards reportedly having conducted ten operations near the city of Mousul over the last three days. The ten attacks accounted for the loss of several armored vehicles and the reported killing of 25 Iraqi ?converted? guards being transported on one of the vehicles.
The type of attacks included package bombs, car bombs, suicide bombers and mortar fire. For example, ?A lion (martyr) of the suicide brigade used a car bomb on Sunday to attack an armored vehicle that was completely destroyed. The attack occurred on the road to Baghdad, in the District of Yarmouk, thanks to Allah.? and ?Today Thursday the non-believer guard?s base in Musul was bombed by five mortar rounds that hit their target, thanks to Allah.?
