A statement from Al-Mulathamin, or Signers with Blood, Brigade on the operation of the Mujahideen in Algerian In Amenas was posted online yesterday. The Kavkaz Center presents its readers the full text of it:†
- A Fedayee company from the "Signers with Blood Brigade" of Al-Qaeda conducted a double storming operation which its goal was controlling the natural gas plant and the Al-Hayat compound belonging to the British BP company, and holding of some Western workers in the compound, and compound was seized, as have been planned by a courageous move and after the Fedayeen gathered several Westerners they released the Muslims present in the location in contrary to what was claimed by the army that it liberated them.
They also contacted the management of the company and offered to negotiate with them and demanded that the army move away from the detention location, to maintain the safety of the Muslims and the hostages, but the response of the army was snipping two of the held hostages after that the Algerian helicopters began to shell the Al-Hayat base where the hostages were held, in an attempt to kill the hostages and end the crisis as soon as possible.
Then the martyrdom seekers took the decision to move to the factory to avoid the death of who remained of them or the injury of the Muslims in the location and preserve the hostages from the shelling, in contrary to what have been claimed by the Algerian regime that they were being moved to a neighboring country.
So the helicopters shelled the convoy that was moving the hostages to the factory, and destroyed it with those who are in it in a brutal way and was directly killed.
That is an indication that the army isn't concerned in preserving the lives of the captives as it claims and the Fedayee group remained present in the factory, offering to negotiate once again and mentioned legitimate demands:
-To stop the aggression on the Muslims in Mali and releasing our captives held by the crusaders, but the Algerian army didn't respond to these legitimate demands, but rather it began to storm the gas factory which led to the death of the hostages.
Hence we confirm the following:
Firstly: The states participating in the crusade against the Muslims and Islam didn't have a goal except striking the young Islamic project in Mali, and in every country that implemented the Sharia, but they didn't interfere to protect the unarmed Syrian people who are being killed and displaced for two years, and that is a proof for their new colonial greed.
Secondly: We offered negotiations with the Westerners and Algerians and gave them safety from the beginning of the operation, but one of the senior intelligence officials confirmed to us in a telephone call that they will destroy the place with those who are in it. And according to our information that general is the one who supervised the operation.
Thirdly: We confirm the false claims of the Algerian security and interior ministry of controlling the borders.
And the operation is a proof for the fragility of the security system and its lying and there is no proof better than the Tanktorin compound having a military barricade the includes more than 250 soldiers specialized in protecting the foreigners and petroleum companies stationed between the two targeted locations, but they stunned before courage of the Fedayeen and their swiftness in executing the operation.
Fourthly: The fallacy of the Algerian regime to the Western countries, and deluding them that the executing group is local and can be controlled easily and even they were aware of the reality since the first hours, and despite that there was only five Algerians, and none of them were from the sons of this area.
Fifthly: The operation was being prepared for some time after an intelligence survey for many locations in different regions, and this location was chosen after it became clear the participation of Algeria with France against our people in Mali, and violating its skies and land by the French, and closure of the borders to besiege the Muslim Azawadi people, that was what pushed to give the signal to begin the operation in Algeria.
Sixthly: We confirm to our Muslim brothers for the necessity of staying away from all the companies and Western compounds to maintain their safety and especially the French ones, and that was emphasized to our Muslim brothers working there by the Fedayeen brothers when they seized the location.
Finally: We threaten all the states that participated in the crusade against the Azawad region if it didn't withdraw its decision of more operations...
