Al-Qaeda announced the launch of 100 attacks in Iraq

Al-Qaeda in Iraq threatened to launch "a hundred attacks" in the country from the middle of the holy month of Ramadan to avenge the death of Osama bin Laden. Terrorist group's statement was broadcast Friday night on pages via the Internet. The text said that the attacks are revenge for bin Laden died in Pakistan in May at the hands of U.S. forces, and other leaders of al-Qaida. "God willing, the campaign begins in the middle of the fasting month and end by God just after a hundred attacks, "he threatened. The statement said the offensive will include "a variety of attacks, including raids, martyrdom operations, roadside bombs, weapons with silencers and shooters in all cities, rural areas and provinces" in Iraq.

On Monday he served half of Ramadan. That day, a wave of insurgent attacks swept Iraq since the northern city of Mosul to the heart of the Shiites in the south. At least 70 people died in suicide attacks, detonated bombs on roads and shootings, the bloodiest day in the country so far this year.

But Al-Qaeda claimed attacks explicitly in the statement on Friday night. A little over a year, U.S. and Iraqi officials said the deaths of the two top leaders of al-Qaida had dealt a blow to the organization. The group also suffered a decline in their funds and only two weeks ago asking former members to return in a sign of decline.

But Monday's violence suggests that the group in Iraq has the potential to emerge and launch attacks feared.
