Documents – Chechnya[12/03/09]Jihadist Group Claims Russian Train Bombing
The NEFA Foundation has obtained a communiqué from the Chechen mujahideen claiming credit for the November 27th train bombing that killed over 30 in Russia. According to the statement, “We declare that this operation was prepared and carried out within the planned, early this year, and successfully carried out acts of sabotage on a number of strategically important objects of Rusnya, pursuant to the order of the Emir of Caucasus Emirate Dokka Umarov. As previously repeatedly warned, in the spring Majlisul Shura by the command of the Caucasus Emirate, it was decided to transfer the sabotage war to the territories of Rusnya, along with strong blows to the occupiers’ infrastructure in the Caucasus. Today, we carry out sabotage operations on electricity transmission lines, oil-and gas-wires. Many of the operations are under preparation status.” Further, “In this year by the command of the Mujahideen, several intelligence-sabotage units were trained and sent deep into Rusnya to conduct operations on enemy’s territory. As a result, and the consequences of these operations have caused enormous economic damage to Rusna, we will continue to work in this direction. We warn the leadership of Rusnya that unless they stop the killing of innocent Muslims of the Caucasus Emirate, and unless they terminate the activities of the ‘death squads’, we reserve the right to conduct appropriate military operations against the ‘civilian’ population of Rusnya.”[11/28/09]Mujahideen Claim Responsibility for Russian Natural Gas Tank Bombing
