Al-Qaeda in Iraq releases two communiques, one claiming an attack on an Apache, and another announcing the assassination of a translator
By SITE Institute
August 13, 2005

Today, August 13, 2005, al-Qaeda in Iraq released two claims of responsibility to a jihadist message board. In the first statement, the group announces an attack which ?disabled? an Apache helicopter ?in the area of al-Radwaneya in West Baghdad,? where the mujahideen claimed to have set up ?an ambush.?

The second communique alleges the capture and assassination of a translator named Shawkat Mohamed Sheet. The translator reportedly ?had confessed that he used to go out with the crusaders during the sudden attacks that used to take place in Mosul.?

A full translation of both messages is provided to our Intel Service members.
