In a statement issued today, September 13, 2005, The Victorious Army Group, [Jeish al-Ta'eifa al-Mansoura], claims to have fired chemical rockets today at several targets in Baghdad, including the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Green Zone, and the Security Academy. According to the message, the explosions ?shook the whole capital Baghdad,? and ambulances were seen carrying away the dead of the ?converters.? The group indicates: ?Here are the mujahideen rockets hitting the converters? dens as a response to the evil thing done by them in Tal Afar.?
On Sunday, September 11, 2005, the Victorious Army Group issued a statement promising attacks with chemical weapons in Baghdad in 24-hours should the attacks in Tal Afar not cease.
