On Saturday 07/21/2012 evening the first online statement from the new leader of Al Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, claimed that the militant network is returning to the old strongholds from which it was driven by USA forces and their Sunni allies prior to the American withdrawal at the end of 2011, and that it is preparing operations to free prisoners and assassinate court officials.

The audio identifies the speaker as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, whose real name is Dr. Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali, who became head of the Islamic State of Iraq in 2010. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (from Baghdad) became the leader of the group after Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, who was not related, was killed together with the other top Al Qaeda leaders in Iraq, Egyptian Abu Ayyub al-Masri, in an air and ground assault by a team of U.S. and Iraqi forces on 04/18/2010. It was posted late on Saturday on a website regularly used by the militant movement to make statements.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi also invited Muslims to come to Iraq to join his movement and warned the United States that it would soon see militant attacks on its territory, although it is unclear whether he was referring to attacks by his Iraqi network or by other Al Qaeda affiliates. "I bring you good news: That we are starting a new phase in our struggle with a plan we named 'Breaking the walls,' and we remind you of your priority to free the Muslim prisoners," he said.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi devoted almost half of the 33-minute speech to Syria's uprising against the regime of President Bashar Assad, member of a Shiite offshoot sect. The uprising is largely Sunni and fighters from Al Qaeda, including Iraqis, are believed to have taken an increasingly active role in recent months (see - Shiite Arc).

Indeed, bomb attacks in several Iraqi towns, on Sunday 07/22/2012, have left at least 17 people dead and 50 others injured, in one of the most violent days in the past two weeks marking, probably, the opening of the the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which started in Iraq on Saturday.


The Sunday bombings were, eventually, a promo to a much deadlier and devastating string of bomb attacks and shootings in Baghdad and north of the capital on Monday 07/23/2012, which, according to initial reports, claimed the lives of at least 82 more Iraqis. Many of those killed were security forces - who appear to have been a prime target, local correspondents reported. The security forces suffered badly in Monday's attacks, with at least 15 Iraqi soldiers killed in a single attack on a base in Salaheddin province.

It is the deadliest day in Iraq since 06/13/2012, when another wave of bombings killed 84 people and injured nearly 300.

At least 237 people were killed and 603 wounded in attacks, in 06/2012, making it one of the bloodiest months since US troops withdrew at the end of last year.
 
* Iraqi counter-terrorism official said to reporters, on 12/02/2012, they have arrested Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi after a two-month long investigation tracking him, and that in addition to arresting him, they also seized the names and locations of other Al Qaeda operatives
