The Islamic Army in Iraq Claims Responsibility of Shooting Down an American Transport Plane in al-Hatemiya, and Destroying Five Trucks in al-Ghazaliya
By SITE Institute
September 19, 2005

In a communiqué dated Saturday, September 17, 2005, the Islamic Army in Iraq claims responsibility of shooting down a large American transport plane in the area of al-Hatemia, in Yathreb, north of Baghdad, and destroying five trailers amongst an American convoy in al-Ghazaliya, as part of their ?harvest.? According to the message, the ?ruins? from the trailers remained on the expressway near al-Khadra for some time, due to a ?state of confusion? within the Ministry of Defense because of the attacks upon them during the last three days.

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