Masked Spokesman Appointed in Iraq
Like a scene from “Batman Begins” the new Batman movie, two terrorist groups in Iraq have decided to appoint a joint spokesman. The spokesman will continue to cover his face:
Two armed groups in Iraq, known for fighting US-led forces and their capture of foreigners including journalists, have appointed a joint spokesperson.
The new spokesperson for the Islamic Army in Iraq and Jaish al-Mujahidin, Dr Ibrahim Yusuf al-Shimmari, told Aljazeera that the decision comes in the context of the groups’ plans to implement a political programme and be politically recognised.
“It is most appropriate for the two groups to unite and appoint a media spokesman,” said al-Shimmari, “due to the escalating amount of persons who claim to speak on behalf of the resistance and adopt political projects that do not serve the resistance.”
