Capture of Terrorist Emirs Gives al-Qaida in Iraq Nowhere to Turn


BAGHDAD, Iraq – On Wednesday, the Government of Iraq released the names and photos of several suspected senior-level Ansar al Sunna emirs who were captured by Coalition Forces during a series of raids in mid-November.


The AAS network is responsible for improvised explosive device attacks and suicide attacks on Iraqi government, Coalition Forces and Iraqi civilians. The AAS network is also responsible for multiple kidnappings, small arms attacks and other crimes in the central and northern part of Iraq.


One terrorist emir, Abu Mohammed aka Ismail, AAS Emir of Yusifiyah was killed during a raid late November.


The suspected Ansar al Sunna emirs who were captured are:


National level


- Ramadan Muhammad Salih Ahmad ((Bilbas)) aka Abu Mustafa, AAS Emir of Iraq. Abu Mustafa is a founding member of AAS.

- Taha Ahmad Pir-Dawud Ahmad ((Surchi)), aka Hajji Sa'id, Senior AAS representative and al-Qaida facilitator.

- 'Adnan 'Abdallah 'Alaywi Muhammad ((al-'Ithawi)), aka Abu Jaffar, AAS Secretary. He was Abu Mustafa's personal assistant and he was responsible for arranging AAS senior-level meetings.


Regional level


- Hatim Abd-al-Ghafar Muslim Muhammad ((al Shimar)), aka Abu Taha, AAS Emir of Al Qa'im and Western al Anbar. He allegedly was a Colonel in the Iraqi Army before the war.

- 'Abd-al-Basit 'Abd-al-Razzaq Hasan 'Ali ((al-'Abbasi)), aka Abu Asim, AAS Emir of Tikrit.

- 'Ali Hasayn 'Ali "Abdallah ((Zandi)), aka Abu Bandar, AAS Emir of Baqubah.

- Amjad 'Abd-al-Sattar Muhammad 'Ali ((al-Ta'i)), aka Abu Najila, AAS Emir of Ramadi and Eastern al Anbar.

- Sa'id Jasim Muhammad Khudayyir al-Jadid ((al-Juwaynat)), aka Abu Sayf, AAS Emir of Bayji.

- Husayn Khudayyir 'Abbas Majid ((al-Zubaydi)), aka Abu Husayn, AAS Emir of Bazayiz.

- Salih Khudayyir Salman Jadi ((al-Juburi)), aka Sajad, AAS Emir of Fallujah.


This is another step closer to defeating al-Qaida in Iraq and helping establish a safe and peaceful Iraq. Coalition Forces will continue to target not only senior al-Qaida in Iraq leaders, but all associated terrorist movements like Ansar Al Sunna. They will be identified, captured and prosecuted for their crimes.

ISF Captures Illegal Armed Group Cell Leader - UPDATE

Multi-National Corps – Iraq PAO


BAGHDAD – 8th Iraqi Army division forces, with the assistance of coalition advisers,

detained the head of the Al Kut Office of the Martyr Sadr on Dec. 9, for alleged

involvement in illegal arms smuggling activities and directing attacks against Iraqi

Security Forces in the area.


Based on credible intelligence, he was detained by Iraqi forces because he

allegedly orders his followers to conduct indirect fire attacks and place improvised

explosive devices in Al Kut and An Numaniyah targeting Iraqi and Coalition Forces. He

is also suspected of approving an ambush carried out against an Iraqi Army patrol on

Sept. 11, 2006.


Iraqi Army forces cordoned and entered the OMS and several adjacent buildings to

detain the suspect and other cell members. The suspect was found in the OMS building

along with IED making components consisting of an artillery projectile, 2 rocket

propelled grenades, hand grenades, blasting caps and propellant charges for mortar



Also found were 2 assault rifles, 17 rifle magazines, night vision goggles, a video

camera, tactical vests, cell phones and a hand-held two-way radio



Five doors were damaged by Iraqi forces when entering the buildings. No other

damage was caused by Iraqi or Coalition Forces to the OMS or surrounding area. Iraqi

forces exchanged small arms fire with hostile elements, slightly wounding one enemy

fighter. The fighter was treated by medical personnel on-site and detained along with

three additional armed suspects. There were no Iraqi forces or Coalition Forces

casualties. There were no reports of civilian casualties.


Iraqi Forces are making progress bringing stability and security to Iraq. The results

of this operation reduce the ability of illegal armed elements to operate, and increases

the safety of all Iraqi civilians and Iraqi Security Forces.
