Salafist Group for Call and Combat (GSPC) Claims Responsibility for an Attack on “Converted Soldiers” in Qoraya
By SITE Institute
August 8, 2005

The Salafist Group for Call and Combat (GSPC), issued a statement on their website about an operation August 5, 2005, launched by the al-Ansar Brigade in the Western Zone upon a group of ?converted soldiers? in Qoraya. According to the message, the soldiers were fired upon and allegedly, a ?countless number? were killed and others injured. The group states the attack was within the ?program? of expelling the ?infidels from Islam land? and defeating the ?converted people.?

The GSPC, in recent years has become the preeminent jihadist organization in Algeria and overseas and is considered responsible for most of the over 900 individuals killed within Algeria by Jihadist violence.

A full translation of the message is provided to our Intel Service members.
