Baghdad, Aug 21 (ANI): The al-Qaeda militant group in Iraq has announced to carry out a campaign of 100 attacks across the country, starting from the middle of holy Muslim month of Ramadan to take revenge for the killing of its former leader Osama bin Laden.
The Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), the al-Qaida front in the country, said in a statement posted on an Islamic website that its attacks would be varied from suicide bombings, roadside bombs, sniper shots and silenced weapons attacks in all cities, rural areas and provinces.
"We have started this stage with an invasion called Revenge for Sheikh Osama Bin laden and senior leaders," Xinhua quoted the statement, as saying.The campaign started in the middle of the fasting month of Ramadan (middle of August) and, if God wills, will end after exactly 100 attacks," it added.
