Al-Qaeda in Iraq recently issued three communiqués and a video describing attacks carried out by the group on Monday, August 22, 2005 in Rawa, Ramadi, and al-Radwaniya.
The first statement refers elliptically to a "confrontation" between al-Qaeda and American forces in Rawa. According to the communiqué, the Americans suffered losses of three vehicles. Later in the day al-Qaeda claims to have "sniped two crusaders in the city of al-Ramadi".
Al-Qaeda in Iraq issued a video, along with a statement of responsibility, for a suicide attack against American forces in al-Radwaniya. According to the message, the attack resulted in "three destroyed vehicles and eight killed in the cars".
