The Mujahideen Shura Council in Iraq issued several communiqués on Thursday, July 27, 2006, of which in four, the Mujahideen Shura Council claims responsibility for three suicide bombings in al-Mosul, al-Baghdadi, and Samarra. A suicide bomber detonated his car bomb on July 26 on a combined base of American forces and puppet "Iraqi National Guards" in al-Baghdadi, killing a high-ranking American general and more than twenty-five soldiers. The Mosul and Samarra attacks also consisted of suicide car bombs, the former having struck an American convoy and killing nine, and the latter on an Iraqi police sniper house, killing twelve. Also, on Wednesday, July 26, the group states that they assassinated a police captain in the al-Bakr section of al-Mosul.
In addition to the communiqués the Mujahideen Shura Council in Iraq issued a statement, on Thursday, July 27, 2006, responding to the announcement by the military commanders that more American soldiers would be deployed to Baghdad, stressing that such admits failure by the Crusaders and is an attempt to raise the morale of its troops. As the costs of war increase and attacks are performed with greater frequency, the Mujahideen Shura Council observes an exhaustion in the American soldiers, causing them much grief from ambushes and constant suicide bombings. The statement reads: "The Marines' fairy-tale of invincibility fell down and vanished by the hands of the Tawhid lions, and the Crusaders' army learned new tactics in the art of combat from the Mujahideen in addition to harsh lessons which will make them forget what they suffered in Vietnam".
