Commander Muhannad Assumes the Leadership of Arab Mujahideen in Chechnya

Publication time: 12 December 2006, 13:46

Qoqaz News, the Arabic website of the Chechen Jihad, announced on Saturday, December 9, 2006, that Commander Muhannad assumed the leadership of the Arab Mujahideen in Chechnya following the death of its previous Commander, Abu Hafs al-Urduni. In addition to offering condolences to the Muslim Nation and al-Urduniís family, reminding that it is every Mujahidís desire to become a martyr, Muhannad is stated to have assured the continuation of the Mujahideensí plans and programs against Russian forces. The Qoqaz news report also indicated that ten Russian soldiers were killed in the village of Ser Jenvort, when a Russian troop carrier was attacked with a barrage of RPG rockets and machinegun fire.

Following the announcement, members of the Islamic Internet community discussed the new leader, pointing out that he was featured in a Ramadan video message published by Mucadele, a Turkish-language Islamic network. The video features Muhannad reminding Jihad is the highest pursuit for Muslims, and thanks Muslims abroad for their food donation project for the Mujahideen and mothers of the martyrs. He is accompanied by four other Mujahideen, one of whom is Commander Abu Abdullah al-Turki .

According to the London based Arabic daily As-Sharq Al-Awsat, Muhannad is from the Arabian/Persian Gulf and previously followed the former commander of the Arab Mujahideen in Chechnya, Khattab, who was killed in April 2002. Citing Islamic sources, As-Sharq Al-Awsat states that Muhannad is in his 30s, the Washington-based SITE Institute reported.
