Ansar Al-Sunna Army Takes Credit for Two Attacks, One Coordinated with Al-Qaeda in Iraq
By SITE Institute
May 29, 2005


The Ansar Al-Sunna Army took credit for two attacks in Iraq today in two separate communiqués. Notably, one attack was held in conjunction with Al-Qaeda in Iraq. The attacks were:

1. An attack on May 28, 2005, against a convoy of American Hummers in Baquba, destroying 2 of them and killing all the soldiers in one of them and injuring the soldiers in the other Hummer.
2. An operation in the morning of May 29, 2005, conducted in coordination with Al-Qaeda in Iraq against another American convoy of Hummers near the ?Kurdistan Union Party,? in which two of the vehicles were destroyed, killing most of the soldiers in them.

The second communiqué claims that American soldiers killed civilians in that attack, not the mujahideen:

?[T]he occupying forces of the crusaders had randomly opened fire from their automated weapons against the peaceful civilians that hit two of them, who immediately died. More than nine others were severely injured. We would like the Muslims to pay attention to this news item, since the live broadcasting stations were concealing the American losses and showing the civilian losses as if they were due to the suicide car bombers.?

Full translations of the communiqués are provided to our Intel Service members.
