PRESS RELEASE FROM IRAQ:
Translation of the
2nd press release coming
from the leadership of Jihad in
Baghdad from the Media Department
The Reality on the Ground!
From the land of Bravery,
from the land of the Mujahideen, from the patient and
firm to all the Muslims this is the news of the Mujahideen
and the Lions of the Battles. We are sending this to
you and promote the news to everyone and be steadfast.
By Allah you will never be attacked from our side as
long as we are alive.
The British Head Quarters are in the
city of Basra. During the evening the Mujahideen successfully
planted some explosives in the HQ and in the whole road
that is the main access route for their supplies. Three
of the Mujahideen attacked the HQ by grenades, RPG's
and their Klashnikovs. After fighting them continuously
for 3 hours the Mujahideen were able to cut off their
supply route. The fighting between them continued and
led to the destruction of 3 artilleries, the complete
withdrawal of all their forces from that region after
having collected their wounded. The Mujahideen returned
with only 1 brother wounded.
The special forces from the Mujahideen
were successful in assassinating Nizal-ul-Kharijzi when
he was coming to Baghdad to attend the meeting tomorrow.
All of the Mujahideen returned back safely. Obeying
the orders of Saddam his elite forces clashed with the
Americans on the East-West side of Baghdad; this happened
when the Americans were engaged in fighting the Mujahideen.
His elite forces covered the whole city with mines and
special timer explosives. This occurred near the Al-Rasheed
Hotel where the American forces were trapped by the
elite Iraqi forces from the front and the Mujahideen
from the back. This operation caused maximum impact
and damage, it killed many American soldiers and many
were wounded. We were not able to count the amount of
casualties. The explosives that occurred in the middle
of the city prove to us that they were very heavily
loaded bombs resulting in the city being covered in
smoke. The Mujahideen monitored the situation for a
while and all of them retreated back safely. The Iraqi
forces had 3 soldiers wounded and the American air jets
came over the city, which triggered us all to disappear.
One Iraqi boy was in the area he was playing with one
of the undetonated explosives and blew himself up. The
Americans theatrically went back into the city in their
tanks and demonstrated in front of their own media as
if they were in complete charge. They wanted to show
that they were in control of the city and were trying
to defend it from looting and the young boy was killed
because of his looting. When the truth is the young
boy died because he was playing with an explosive left
behind. The Mujahideen put 700kg of TNT under 3 tanks
and using the RPG's they managed to kill 3 Americans,
12 were wounded and 2 tanks were completely destroyed.
In another operation conducted by Abu Musa, the enemy
forces were kept busy by the Iraqi forces in the East
side of Baghdad preventing them from crossing a bridge
and this resulted in guerrilla war tactics. The Americans
were forced to bring in their air jets to the region
and they started to bomb everywhere causing many civilian
All the Iraqi forces had retreated from
Tikreet 5 days before the American forces arrived except
for one regiment (Firkah-tul-Adnaan) who in co-ordination
with the Mujahideen will start to hunt the Americans
one by one. The tunnel of Tikreet has been found by
the Americans and are now preparing themselves to enter
the tunnels. Some of the Iraqi forces are in these tunnels
and most likely Saddam is there too.
Fidaaee Saddam encountered American
wagons and forces in Al-Mosul, they destroyed 3 cars,
killed 8 Americans and wounded 6 of them. The American
air jets responded and started to bomb the whole area.
A party of the Mujahideen from the group
of Abu Ali Al-Mujahid in co-operation with Ansar-ul-Islam
reached the most advanced American forces. They fought
against them and the Pushmergas for 2 hours, the enemy
forces had to retreat back when the Pushmergas encountered
heavy losses. The American air jets came to bomb us;
3 of our brothers were Shaheed, 12 of them wounded and
the brothers had to retreat back.
We have bitten those kuffaar crusaders from the same
hole many times, they do not have any tactic to counter
us because they are only trained to fight and stay put.
The group of Mujahideen sent a letter to the Americans
informing them of a military storage dump. As usual
the Americans went there to collect the arsenal, when
they arrived the whole area had been bugged with mines
and huge explosives were timed off killing 8 of them,
their artillery being destroyed and many were wounded.
The air jets were sent in and they bombed indiscriminately
causing many civilian (residents) casualties. Only 1
of the Mujahideen became Shaheed, 2 were wounded and
all the rest returned back safely to their caves. All
you could see was a huge fire.
The Jihad will continue with Bush and Blair; in the
media they are now speaking of the battle as if it has
finished, now they are speaking of having a new government
yet in the battlefield there is killing, there is fighting
and they know the coming days will make them forget
yesterday. We are waiting for the Summer and when the
Summer comes Inshallah we will be able to hurt them
badly by the heat of the sun and the heat of our weapons
and the strategy of fighting we have adopted (i.e. guerrilla
warfare). The Mujahideen have their own special forces
from Allah (swt) and that is the weather. May Allah
(swt) keep sending us all his soldiers.
Tahiyyaat to all the Muslims, keep making Dua for us,
for your Muslim brothers in Iraq and send our news to
all the Mujahideen.
