Al-Qa'ida claim responsibility for Iraq attacks
Thursday 23 August 2012
Al-Qa'ida's front group in Iraq has claimed responsibility for dozens of deadly attacks in the Sunni-dominated western Anbar province this summer.
The Islamic State of Iraq said in a statement today that it was behind a wave of 43 attacks that included roadside bombings, sticky bombs, mortars and rockets, booby trapped houses and shootings against Iraqi security forces, pro-government elements and military bases.
The statement, which appeared on a militant website, says the attacks took place from late June until the second half of July, leaving scores of dead and injured.
Iraq's security forces and government offices are top targets for insurgents seeking to undermine the Shiite-led government's authority.
