2000 Russian Military Base Attacked
Large Russian Military Base Attacked, More than 21 Russians Killed
The Mujahideen attacked a Russian Military base in Chechnya, that
had a large number of soldiers and military equipment. Prior to
this attack, the Mujahideen put together a military plan based on
a reconnaissance mission. This mission was carried out after some
time of relative calm. This attack was from many flanks, where missiles
and heavy automatic machine guns were used. As a result of this
attack, some military equipment was destroyed and the killing of
more than 21 Russian soldiers, along with many wounded.
Three Helicopters Take Turns in Transporting the Wounded
Russian helicopters arrived to transport the wounded and bodies
from the site. The Mujahideen returned safely to their positions,
thanks to Allah, after the completion of this successful sudden
attack operation against the Russians.
Why this Calm?
When calm spreads through many areas of the Republic of Chechnya,
this does not mean that the enemy has been victorious over the Mujahideen.
The Mujahideen must face periods of such calm, attack and quietness,
as these are situations that repeat itself with the Mujahideen in
this war. The Mujahideen continue to inflict losses on the Russians,
All Praise be to Allah, even with their fewer numbers and supplies.
"...How often a small group overcame a mighty host by
Allah's Leave? And Allah is with those who are patient."

2000 The Calm Before the Storm, The Land of Chechnya is Unusually
Nowadays, the land of Chechnya is unusually quiet. While operations
continue to take place on a daily basis, they are not as numerous
as before. This is primarily because the Mujahideen are making their
final preparations for the upcoming winter, which will Inshaa-Allah
be full of surprises and shocks for the Russian forces.
It is important to realize that we benefited and learnt a lot from
the last winter, which was especially grueling and harsh. All Praise
be to Allah, we developed experience and spent a great deal of time
preparing for it. These days, the Field Commanders are spending
the greater part of their time in high-level meetings, strategizing
for the winter season. According to the senior Field Commander,
Ibnul-Khattab [May Allah Protect him], gathering the Mujahideen
and their commanders for meetings in which strategies can be discussed
for the upcoming winter will have the effect of silence and quiet
in the land of battle.
However, it should be remembered, that it is only the calm before
the storm. Russian forces continue to undertake large-scale search
operations in the cities, villages, mountains, and valleys always
on the look out for the Mujahideen.
Meanwhile: Putin, Wants to Intervene in Palestine
on whose behalf?
The Russian Putin claims that he wants to intervene in the current
situation in Palestine to calm things down. His statements leave
one incredulous to say the least, when one considers that these
words emerge from the mouth of a man who let loose his barbaric
men on the Chechens, allowing them to kill our brothers, and rape
our sisters, and inflict numerous other atrocities on them.
One can't help but wonder what it is that he is after. Does he actually
feel pain at the slaughtering of Palestinian Muslims by the Jews?
Or is he just returning the favour of Israel who supported him with
money, intelligence, and experienced engineers and officers at the
beginning of this war? This is merely an attempt to cool or stop
the efforts at Jihad which are taking place in Palestine. Russia
is by no means the only one who "wants to intervene."
Military Operations in Chechnya
The unit of Abu Jafar planted a SAO155 remote controlled landmine
for a Russian armoured vehicle, which was expected to use the road
joining Vedeno to Serzhen-Yurt. The vehicle was detonated as it
drove over the mine. All 12 occupants of the vehicle were killed
during the explosion and the battle which followed thereafter.
Six Russian soldiers were killed during an attack on their blockpost
in Grozny. No losses were suffered by the Mujahideen.
A Russian armoured vehicle was detonated in the area of Atki, killing
an undetermined number of occupants.
Russian Arrogance Stretches Beyond Russian Borders
The Russian intelligence demanded that the Georgian government hand
over a number of injured Mujahideen who are currently receiving
medical care in Georgian hospitals. The Georgian government refused
to comply with this demand. Approximately 25 Mujahideen are currently
receiving medical care in Georgia.

More Battles Between Abul Waleed's Units and Russian Special Forces
A few days ago (17/10), Qoqaz.net
reported that units led by Senior Commander Abul Waleed, engaged
Russian elite forces killing 25 of them. In recent days, a number
of new battles broke out against the same Russian units. To date,
more than 80 "elite" Russian soldiers were killed while
seven armoured vehicles and 8 military vehicles were destroyed.
The Russian units are attempting to perform reconnaissance and exploration
missions in various regions of Chechnya.
Elsewhere in Chechnya
- Three OMON soldiers where killed and their vehicle destroyed in
Argun when they came under attack by a Mujahideen unit.
- A Russian BMP was detonated in Kershloi killing all of its occupants.
Due to the speedy nature of the operation, the number of occupants
was not counted.
Russian Media Sound Distress Alarms Regarding the 150 Readied
Mujahideen for Palestine
The Russian media sounded distress alarms as 150 Mujahideen announced
that they were ready for Jihad in Palestine last week. Similar to
their "sister" media in the West, the Russian media played
up public and international fear by using terms like "terrorism".
They all have forgotten that Palestine and Al-Aqsa are in the hearts
of every Muslim and that Jihad in Palestine is in the thoughts of
every Muslim. Preparation for Jihad in this special land is one
of the most important duties of every Muslim. We completely believe
and are certain of the day that will come when the Muslims will
fight the Jews, kill, and defeat them Insha-Allah. Let it be known
that in spite of every unbeliever and in the face of every atheist,
Islam will arrive and truth will be victorious. We ask Allah to
hurry the victory and to protect its soldiers.

2000 A Correction on the Last News Item
Contrary to the previous news bulletin (15/10),
the Commander Isa Takbeer is alive well, and the Commander Isa Banayev
is actually the Mujahid who was martyred. May Allah Have Mercy on
Him. We aplogise for this mistake in the previous news report.
Commander Abul Waleed Leads An Attack on Russian Special Forces
Under the Command of Abul Waleed, the Mujahideen attacked an Airborne
Unit of the Russian Special Forces, which consisted of 120 soldiers.
The Mujahideen struck them with Artillery, then attacked using heavy
and light machine guns. The Russian soldiers showed some resistance
for a short while, but like cowards they ran away leaving behind
25 dead soldiers and as many injured on the battleground. The Mujahideen
have gathered a number of weapons and ammunition. Two of the Mujahideen
were martyred in this battle, we ask Allah (SWT) to accept them
Russian Forces Claim They Arrested Three Mujahideen After Martyrdom
Operation in Grozny
The Military Command Council planned the Martyrdom operation in
the capital Grozny which was carried out by only ONE of the Mujahideen.
He disguised himself as a Russian officer after he shaved his beard,
and boarded a white UKAZ vehicle, which was booby-trapped. He passed
a few check points until he reached the Octoberski region in the
middle of Grozny where the Russian Military command center was.
He stopped the vehicle next to the building and blew it up. This
resulted in the death of 17 Russian soldiers and many injuries in
the Russian forces, amongst whom were high ranking officers. This
Martyrdom operation was in response to the security measures that
the Russian forces took, thinking that they are safe from the Mujahideen,
and this is also after an announcement from the Russian Military
Marshal Commander Ivan Baitsheive that he has control over the situation
Vedeno Witnesses the Killing of 15 Russian Soldiers
The Mujahideen attacked a Russian convoy near the town of Bljtoy
in the region of Vedeno, which lead to the killing of 15 Russian
soldiers and the destruction of 2 BTR's and a cargo vehicle carrying
heavy weapons. As to the Mujahideen, two were martyred and others
were injured, we ask Allah to accept the Martyred and cure the injured.

The Mujahideen Avenge for the Civilians of Korshel
After running low on food, a Russian unit entered the village of
Korshel in an armoured vehicle and plundered food and provisions
from the villagers. As proof of their hatred for the Muslims, civilian
or otherwise, they then slaughtered seventeen cows belonging to
the village. The nearby unit of Commander Abu Sufyan heard news
of the Russian aggression as it was taking place. They proceeded
to the outskirts of the village and quickly laid an anti-tank landmine.
As the Russians left the village, the mine was detonated destroying
the armoured vehicle, killing four enemy soldiers, and wounding
Two Landmine Assaults on Russian Units
Remote-controlled landmines were used to attack a Russian convoy
on the road between Gudermes and Argun. An unidentified number
of vehicles were destroyed and almost certainly resulting in the
deaths of many Russians. The unit of Commander Adam attacked and
destroyed two Russian armoured vehicles near the village of Akshti,
killing a number of Russian soldiers.

2000 Commander Isa Takbeer Earns Martyrdom
Mujahideen units, led by Field Commander Isa Takbeer, staged another
assault on Russian positions in the capital Grozny. After destroying
a number of AFVs (Armoured Fighting Vehicles) and killing scores
of Russian soldiers, Commander Takbeer reached his ultimate goal
and acheived Martyrdom, insha-Allah.
Commander Isa Takbeer led many operations in Grozny where he had
settled following the Mujahideen's withdrawal, earlier this year.
The series of operations he led not only destroyed Russian men
and machinery but also morale and spirit. May Allah have mercy
upon his soul and accept him as a Martyr in the highest levels
of Paradise. We will have glimpses of his life and Jihad in the
near future, insha-Allah.
Do Not Despair Nor Grieve
Allah says in His Glorious Book:
"Do not despair nor grieve. You shall overcome them,
if you are believers."
" If a wound reaches you, be sure a similar wound has reached
And these are the days which we give in turns to Mankind, so that
Allah may know those who believe, and so that he may chose for
Himself martyrs from amongst you . And Allah does not love those
who are unjust."
"And so that Allah may prove those that are true in faith
and deprive the unbelievers of blessings"
A Mujahideen unit left for an operation led by Field Commander
Bahauddin Bakoyev. On the way, they were attacked by a Russian
ambush with fire from machine guns, artillery, and landmines.
They returned fire to the best of their ability, killing and wounding
a number of enemy soldiers. This ambush resulted in the Martyrdom
of Commander Bakoyev and 10 other Mujahideen. The remaining Mujahideen
where able to defend themselves and return back to their posts.
May Allah accept all the Martyrs in the highest places of Heaven.
Congratulations to the soil of Chechnya for being purified with
the blood of these Martyrs. All we say is that we belong to Allah
and to Him we shall all return. Oh Allah, help us during our difficult
times and replace these with better days. We thank Allah in every
case and even though we lost more than 10 Mujahideen in this incident,
and their souls are so dear to us, we have killed many Russians
and sent them to the everlasting Hell, insha-Allah. We will insha-Allah
have our revenge for these brothers. For Allah gives victory to
whoever supports His cause.
The Russians Will Soon See
The Mujahideen are currently preparing an upcoming series of operations.
These operations will be of a different style and magnified destructive
force on the enemy, insha-Allah. The current operations you read
and hear about are the remnants of the old plans and operations.
The new signs of changing weather and conditions require us to
prepare new, fresh plans. We solely count on Allah in our doings
and have full belief that victory comes from Allah not from our
doing. We simply work our hardest using the tools that Allah gave
us and continue our supplication, the effect of which we have
Therefore, we urge all Muslims to increase in their supplication
and concentration in their prayers and ask Allah to grant victory
to the Mujahideen in Palestine and here in Chechnya. It is not
a secret that the Mujahideen are in dire need for financial assistance,
which is the backbone of any Jihad. So do not be miserly with
your soles, supplication, and money. For victory is undoubtedly
coming from Allah when He wills and Allah will not make the unbelievers
above his believers.

2000 Letter from the Mujahideen Military Command Council in Chechnya
To the Muslims of Palestine...
To Muhammad Abu-Darrah...
To the Protectors of Al-Aqsa...
A Promise From Chechnya
LETTER TO OUR BROTHERS IN PALESTINE
In the Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Dispenser of Mercy.
Indeed all Praise is due to Allah. We send prayers and greetings
of peace upon His Messenger, Commander of the Mujahideen, and
Leader of those with shining faces on the Day of Judgement. Prayers
and greetings of peace upon his entire family and upon all his
From the hills of Chechnya, from the land of determination, honour,
and dignity, we forward this urgent letter to our brothers in
Palestine. Even if our homes are thousands of miles apart, our
hearts could not be closer to you.
We continue to grieve because our beloved Aqsa is in the hands
of lawless occupiers, the Jews. Without doubt, they are the worst
of all nations Allah has created. Throughout history they have
rebelled against Allah and have slain their Prophets. We cannot
mention Al-Aqsa - may Allah liberate it - without feeling the
pain in our hearts because of what happened and continues to happen.
With every passing day, this wound is gouged deeper and deeper.
The latest arrow to pierce this wound was when Ariel Sharon defiled
the sanctity of Al-Aqsa, a few days ago. The youth of Al-Aqsa
rushed to defend that which the Muslim Umma had discarded. Except
our brothers are unarmed, whereas the Jews have whatever weapons
they desire. And thus they fight with stones and rocks, while
the Jews reply with artillery, tanks, and aircraft.
So we send this letter from the land of Chechnya, also under the
bombardment of fighter jets, tanks, artillery, and machine guns.
We are full of pain, for what we have seen and heard squeezes
the blood straight from our hearts. By Allah, we apologize to
you, for we cannot offer any support except our supplication,
day and night. Your land is our land. Patience, your destiny is
To the Muslims of Palestine...
To you, the people who are fighting for the last remaining shred
of Palestine. To you, who confront the enemies of Allah in the
Name of the Religion and to raise the Word of Allah. To you, our
Be patient. Victory is to whomever has an extra hour of patience.
Indeed, Allah is the Almighty, the All Glorious. Persist in your
Jihad! Do not tire or become weary! If you tire, then remember
us. The enemies of Allah have occupied our land for decades. If
you are dispirited because your enemy has expelled you, then remember
us. Our entire population was usurped and exiled less than a hundred
years ago and only a few returned. And we continue to be made
outcasts and refugees. And we continue to be violated and slaughtered.
And we continue to be tortured with remorseless cruelty. No food,
no clothing, no homes, except that we are happy that we have pleased
our Lord and Creator. It is with His Knowledge and His Wisdom
that He decreed this situation for us. And if anything else was
better for us, He would have ordained it. The believers
role is to be patient during hardship and to be thankful during
To you, our martyred brothers. To you, congratulations on meeting
your Lord, having shed your blood for His sake. You are in the
True Happiness. You are living the everlasting life and you are
enjoying the endless bounty. By Allah, we are not saddened over
you. We are saddened over our own selves. To be martyred is to
be chosen by Allah. Whoever is not good enough for it, let him
not expect it.
What the enemies of Allah did to our children in the blessed land
turns the tears into blood. The murder of unarmed innocents by
Jewish hands was not called 'terrorism', rather 'preventive defense'.
The murder of the innocent 40-day-old infant, Sarah was not called
'terrorism', rather 'defusing of protests'. They are, in every
way, the definitive example of true terrorists. This is proven
by countless examples, including what they did to our brother
Muhammad Abu-Darrah and his father. How painful was the sight
of him screaming in vain?
To Muhammad Abu-Darrah...
Muhammad was taking cover with what could not protect or help
him. As we saw the bullets strike him and his father, a deep sorrow
struck our hearts. Indeed, he lived up to his name, Muhammad (blessed).
They murdered him because of his blessed actions. Hurling rocks
taking revenge for the sake of his Religion. He is indeed blessed
and it is no wonder. After all, is he not from the followers of
Muhammad (SAW), the most blessed of Allahs creations.
O Muhammad, you have done what none among our best men did or
will do. Your blood is nothing but proof that the Religion of
Allah is dear to you and Allah will never deny your reward. Nor
the reward of every true, blessed Mujahid. Muhammad Abu-Darrah
(jewel) your home is now with Allah for you are a true jewel.
Well hold on to you and present you to our generations hoping
that they will be as blessed as you were.
While we pained for you as you tried to take cover from the Jewish
onslaught, we remembered the words of our Prophet (SAW) on the
day he gave us the glad tidings of fighting the Jews with his
The Day of Judgement will not come around until the Muslims
fight the Jews in war where the Muslims will annihilate the Jews.
A Jew will hide behind a rock or tree and it would shout (at a
near by Muslim) O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a
Jew behind me. Will you not come and kill him ? All would
say this except the 'Gharqadah' trees for they are loyal to the
We wondered how we came to be in this subjugated position where
the Muslims are hiding and the Jews are killing. Muhammad, do
you know why you had to hide behind a rock that did not offer
its protection? It is because the 'men' of this Umma have hidden
and fled from the Jews to this very day.
We know what we have heard about the slaughter is but the tip
of the iceberg. We know what we saw is a mere paragraph in the
histories of Jewish terrorism. The terrorism fostered, nurtured,
and supported by American hands. The very people who claim to
To the Protectors of Al-Aqsa...
To the people whom by their uprising made the mountains look pathetic.
You have written a unique chapter in our shameful book of history.
We are proud to be part of a nation which can act as courageously
as you. For as long as our nation has people like you, it will
continue to be a nation of sacrifice and honour.
It is true that your weapons are nothing but mere stones. But
in your land and in your hands, there is a difference. With you,
every stone throws horror in the hearts of the Jews. With you,
your stones become like weapons of mass destruction. The man of
honour is the one who relies upon Allah and kills his enemy even
by his bare hands. Whereas, the coward is the one who will flee
from his unarmed opponent even if given every weapon he could
To the defiant people of Al-Aqsa, you are the heroes so:
"Take heart and do not despair. Have
faith and you shall triumph." [Quran 3:139]
Our nation is a ship but unlike other ships, it
only floats in the blood of its sons. The less blood that is sacrificed
for the sake of Allah, the lower our ship sinks. And should the
blood run dry, then the ship will be destroyed. We ask you by
Allah, do not deny us your blood. There is no honor to us except
with the blood of martyrs.
"Fighting was made obligatory upon
you, much as you dislike it. But you may hate something while
it is beneficial to you. And you might love something and it is
harmful to you. Allah knows all and you know not" [Quran
If others delayed in their support for you, remember
that Allah is the only One who can give you victory. If others
turned you away, remember that Allah does not turn away his believing
servants. If you fight for the sake of Allah alone, then Allah
has guaranteed victory for you and will strengthen your ranks.
If you fear no-one except Allah (SWT), then everyone and everything
else will fear you.
And know that neither large numbers nor sophisticated machinery
will give you victory. Taqwa (piety) is what gives victory. So
fight in the path of Allah using Taqwa, good deeds, righteousness,
performing Allahs commands, and letting go of what He has
prohibited, and you will be victorious insha-Allah.
You have an example in Afghanistan when they were the poorest
nation on earth and their enemy invaded their land. They relied
upon Allah and defeated the strongest nation on earth at the time.
The Russian navies, armies, atomic bombs, biological weapons did
not benefit them in the least as Allah had decided to give victory
to the Muslims. So do not fear the weapons of your enemy. If you
adhere to the conditions of Allah, he will give you victory. Allah
"Musa said to his people, "Ask
help from Allah, the whole earth belongs to Allah, he makes whomever
he wishes from his servants inherit it. And the everlasting blessing
is for the pious meek.""
"Indeed, our Word was passed to our
Servant Messengers in the past. They are indeed the Victors. And
our Soldiers are indeed the winners."
"Allah promised those of you who believed and did good to
be entrusted with the earth the same way it was entrusted with
their likes in the past. To give control to their Religion which
was approved for them. To bestow them with peace in place of the
fear they previously lived. To worship Me alone and not accompany
anything with Me. Whomever disbelieve afterwards, those are the
So, seeking help from Allah, patience, his worship,
piety, belief, good deeds, following of the guidance of Muhammad
(SAW), holding on to the Religion and the Way of Allah, and disbelief
in Taghoot (anything worshipped besides Allah) are all conditions
which give victory. And if you neglect them then Allah says,
"When a disaster befell you after you
had yourselves inflicted losses twice as heavy, you exclaimed,
"Whose fault was that?" Say to them (O Muhammad), "It
was your own fault. Allah has power over all things.""
So do not plead with anyone except with Allah. The
Muslim countries will never support you until Allah desires it.
The Muslims have become engrossed with their own concerns and
only protective of the worthless lifestyles they enjoy. Except
for those whom Allah has saved, and of them there are few.
A Promise From Chechnya
Finally, we promise you that soon insha-Allah, you will hear of
what we do with the brothers of the Jews, the Russians, in retaliation
for Al-Aqsa and for you. Wait for a forth coming operation which
we haved named 'Operation Al-Aqsa'. That is all that we can do
to comfort you and heal your wounds. Indeed, Allah is the source
of support and reliance should be on nothing but him.
We ask Allah with every Glorious Name He gave Himself and every
Honorable Description to bestow victory on all of our struggling
Mujahideen brothers everywhere and in particular those in Palestine.
We ask Him to make it easy on them and to crush their enemies,
turning them back defeated and broken. Indeed He is capable of

2000 150 Mujahideen in Chechnya are Ready for Jihad in Palestine
A member of the Military Command Council announced that one hundred
and fifty Mujahideen from Chechnya are readily available to perform
Jihad in Palestine, the only thing they are missing is the coordination
for their entrance to Palestine through neighbouring Islamic countries,
if that is possible! Although the number of volunteers are more
than the mentioned number, however, these Mujahideen are prepared
to leave at any time. Even with the current situation that the
Republic of Chechnya lives in, the hearts are still thirsty for
Jihad in Palestine. Although this feeling might be in the heart
of every Muslim, it has a greater effect in the hearts of the
Mujahideen in Chechnya considering the situation they are in.
A Mujahid Kills Three Soldiers in the Middle of a Market
Russian soldiers and civilians were amazed when a Mujahid pulled
out his weapon and killed three Russian soldiers in front of people
and in the presence of other soldiers in the city market of Urus
Martan. Fear and surprise of the attack froze the remaining soldiers.
The Mujahid was able to leave the city through the civilian crowds,
this is one of the lessons in bravery and courage that the Mujahideen
demonstrate for free in Chechnya.
Numbers Do Not Tip the Scale, However, Iman and Tawakul Do
If the Russian soldiers are everywhere, then so are the Mujahideen.
This is an answer to a question concerning the existence of Russian
soldier masses everywhere in Chechnya. If Russian soldiers are
everywhere, fear and terror is their companion. Whereas the Mujahideen,
with their fewer numbers and supplies, are everywhere also, however,
Iman and Tawakul (faith and reliance) in Allah, Most High, is
We will Not Forget Masjid Al-Aqsa and Palestine as We Fight
the Russians and Jews in Chechnya
All the Mujahideen express what is in their hearts of pain and
sorrow towards the Jewish treachery and betrayal in Palestine
and Masjid Al-Aqsa by fighting the Russian enemy and to be diligent
in killing it and to defeat its aggression, by the help of Allah,
Most High. This enemy, had Jews in military ranks both as soldiers
and engineers to support the Russian Military at the onset of
the war in Chechnya. All the sufferings and pain of this Ummah
will not weaken our determination to continue Jihad for the sake
of Allah, Glorious and Most High, and to fight the enemies. Jihad
is the only way to bring pride and elevate this Ummah. Every tragedy
that happens to this Ummah, especially in Palestine and Masjid
Al-Aqsa, grieves our hearts in Chechnya, but it encourages us
to continue with Jihad even if the path is long.
Military Operations Varies from Area to Another and Relative
Calm Spread Throughout Most Areas
Relative calm has spread throughout areas in Chechnya, except
for a few Russian search missions for Mujahideen. Military operations
from the Mujahideen vary from one area to another. There are a
few operations being carried out, but less than before.
In the capital Grozny there were a few military operations, however
to a lesser extent than usual. A reason for this calm could be
due to the fear that Russian soldiers have as a result of the
Mujahideen missions, which have resulted in a lot of dead soldiers
in their ranks, to the point where they only leave in groups to
guard each other, whilst avoiding civilian gatherings. With all
of their precautions they are not safe. Praise be to Allah, Most
High, for the various missions from the Mujahideen.

do not be sad, you are higher if you are but believers,

Tuesday 10 October 2000 Mujahideen Command Council Announcement
The Mujahideen Military Command Council issued the following announcement
regarding the recent escalation of affairs in Palestine and Al-Quds:
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds. Prayer and peace be upon
our prophet Muhammad, his family, and companions.
The Exalted Allah says in his glorious book:
And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the
Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed
among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord!
rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise
for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You
one who will help. [Quran 4:75]
He also says:
Fight against them so that Allah will punish them
by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them
and heal the hearts of a believing people. [Quran 9:14]
The recent happenings of Baitul Maqdis have occupied our minds,
even more as as regards fighting the Russian atheists. The wounds
of our brothers in Palestine made us forget our own wounds. The
sight of blood from the martyrs of Al-Aqsa takes our attention
away from our own blood. And all blood is dear when it flows in
the sake of Allah.
Our greetings and prayers go out to the steadfast lions of Baitul
Maqdis, to the stone-throwing children facing the mammoth Jewish
military, and to the mothers of the martyrs who gave up their
hearts for Allah. To all of them, we send our prayers, to remain
steadfast on this path. Victory comes to whoever is patient for
an extra hour. By Allah, we wish from the bottom of our hearts
to be among you suffering what you suffer and resisting with you
the occupying enemy.
We would like to assure the following:
1. Jihad, and only Jihad is what saves the lands, what frees the
people, and what eventually causes real peace.
2. This spark of jihad should not be extinguished. Let it continue
until Allah decides its destiny and gives us His promise.
3. The recent happenings clearly prove that the so-called Muslim
countries refuse peace. For peace is not reached by abdicating
land and accepting misery and disgrace. And whoever seeks this
so-called peace with the Jews is giving up his people
and his land.
4. We are keen to share your sorrow and disasters for you are
our family and our people. The same way we want to share with
you our bounty. We are both united in facing the sadistic, cruel
enemy. Despite our dire needs, we prefer you, the people of the
blessed land, than ourselves. We issued a decree to provide the
family of each martyr a token gift of support of $1000.
5. We warn you from the backstabbing Jews and their deception.
Do not give a chance to their proponents or anyone else who wants
to trade with the blood of martyrs.
Finally, we ask Allah to accept the dead as martyrs in the highest
levels of paradise. We ask Him to hasten the recovery of the wounded,
to make the Mujahideen steadfast, and grace them with the promised
victory. We ask Him to crush, disgrace, and humiliate the Jews
and heal the hearts of the believers.
Prayer and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, his family, and

Monday 09 October 2000 Al-Aqsa is in the Hearts of the Mujahideen
The talk of the people here in Chechnya continues to be of Al-Aqsa
and Palestine. The residents of Grozny, Vedeno, Shatoi, and everywhere
else, are closely following the news. We are incensed by the openly
inhumane Jewish aggression against our brothers and sisters in
The Jews continue to bitterly complain of the atrocities they
suffered over 50 years ago. Yet they mercilessly shed Muslim blood
on the land of Palestine. They weep in memory of the prison camps,
yet now it is the Muslims that look back at their captors through
barbed wire. They pounce on their critics as 'anti-Semitic', yet
their hatred for the Muslim people is undisguised and confirmed
by the worst atrocities.
Where is the honour of a people that reply to stone-throwing children
with indiscriminant live ammunition and heavy weapons? Who are
the courageous ones, the Israeli soldiers with their body armour
and automatic weapons or the school children who willingly risk
their lives to lob a rock at their tormentors?
Where is the 'justice' of the international community? How will
yet another UN resolution comfort an innocent Muslim youth as
he lies dead on the streets of Jerusalem? Why should the West
intervene when they are pleased with work of the Jews?
The Muslims, Arabs, and Westerners of the world watch and hear
the slaughter and execution, yet no-one is prepared to take the
slightest action. The Muslim countries only pay lip service with
their condemnation but have not even lifted a finger towards the
Jews. Palestine is surrounded by Muslim countries who lavishly
spend billions on their military. They have the latest generation
armoured fighting vehicles and state-of-the-art fighter jets but
not one bullet have they fired in defence of the Muslims. For
how long will the Muslim countries be content to watch as the
sacred sanctuary of Al-Aqsa is violated again and again?
We ask Allah to destroy the heartless Jews and their allies. Ameen.
Fifteen Russians Perish in the Operation of the Market
A unit of Field Commander Ramadan executed a successful assault
on Saturday morning following the Fajr (morning) prayer. After
the Fajr prayer, they proceeded to their target asking Allah for
victory. They ambushed a large Russian unit near the northern
market of the capital, Grozny. The ambush resulted in the destruction
of four armoured vehicles, the death of fifteen Russians, and
the injuring of more.
Russian Cowards Flee and Desert Their Base
Russian soldiers deserted their base after a unit of Field Commander
Ramadan executed a surprise attack in Gudermes. After mowing down
the fleeing cowards, killing some and wounding others, the unit
completely annihilated the base. The Mujahideen have planned a
number of these attacks to ensure that the Russians remain in
a state of fear, weakness, and despair. We ask Allah to destroy
the occupiers and turn them away from the Muslims, for He is the
Invincible, the Almighty.
Gangsters Even When Drunk
An armoured vehicle of a Russian convoy veered off the road on
Saturday morning in Grozny and ran over a small car crushing to
death a woman and her son and injuring an elderly woman. After
the people gathered and the convoy came to a stop, it turned out
that the driver of the armoured vehicle was drunk. Another example
of how the Muslims are being butchered even by drunken soldiers.
The question we keep asking
who will stand up for the Muslims?

2000 Two Assault Operations in Gudermes
Field Commander, Abdul-Hadi, lead member of the Mujahideen Military
Command Council, led two of his units in two separate assaults
in Gudermes. The first unit executed a successful ambush of a
Russian platoon. First, three strategically placed mines where
detonated followed by a hail of automatic machine gun fire and
heavy H1 missiles. The result was the death of twelve Russian
soldiers and the injuring of many more. In addition, two BMPs
and two military vehicles were destroyed.
The second unit engaged a different Russian platoon on the road
connecting Gudermes and Kershloi. Details are not available but
we know that Russian soldiers were both killed and injured.
The Operations of Grozny
In the district of Kirova in the west of the capital Grozny, the
Mujahideen blew up a Russian armoured vehicle using a remote controlled
mine. In the process of destroying the BMP, two Russian soldiers
were killed and fourteen more were injured, some very seriously.
The non-stop operations continue around the clock in Grozny whether
it is individual assassinations, landmine detonations, or assault

2000 Reaction from Mujahideen and Civilians to the Massacre in
Following the savage Zionist massacres against unarmed Palestinian
civilians in recent days there has been widespread messages of
support from the Mujahideen and civilians of Chechnya. Even with
all the destruction and killing that we face at the hands of the
Russian forces, the Aqsa Mosque and Palestine has been at the
centre of conversation in Chechnya. Many Mujahideen and Chechen
civilians wish, even more fervently, to make Jihad against the
aggression of the Jews and hope that the whole Islamic Nation
(Umma) is now feeling the same way. All the many injuries that
the Muslims have, would not equal the deep wound that still bleeds
from the body of this Umma. The outrage over Palestine and the
Aqsa Mosque beats in every Muslim heart on the face of this earth.
Thirteen Russian Special Forces Dead
A group of Mujahideen ambushed a group of Russian Special Forces
in Safedno in the area of Fedno. In the surprise attack thirteen
Russian soldiers were killed and twenty others injured in addition
to the destruction of some military equipment. The Mujahideen
were able to return to their positions with two Mujahideen slightly
injured, we ask Allah (SWT) to cure them. This operation was a
serious blow to the Russian Special Forces following a period
of relative inactivity lasting a few days. We ask Allah (SWT)
to make us victorious over them.
Destruction of Russian Command Centre in Argun
A group of Allah's Soldiers were able to destroy a large section
of the building of the train station in the city of Argun. The
Russian soldiers took this building as a command centre. The Mujahideen
were able to attack this building after careful planning. Due
to this attack, many Russian soldiers were killed along with various
Two Russian soldiers were killed during a Mujahideen attack on
a Russian group in the Starvemlovsky District of Grozny. The cargo
of a URAL (Russian military truck) was destroyed and many soldiers
were injured. A number of the Mujahideen attacked another Russian
force in the area of Jerova leaving four Russian soldiers dead.

2000 Russian Forces Gathering in Zhanni-Vedeno
A huge number of Russian equipment and soldiers had been moving
towards the area of Zhanni-Vedeno. The estimated numbers were
approximately 300 vehicles and 5000 Russian soldiers. One would
ask about the intention of the Russian forces, which has left
its mark as a force of destruction and aggression with every town
and every road it passes through. Previous attacks from Russian
forces were seemingly not enough, and shamelessly every hour such
attacks are repeated against civilians, as these forces roam from
town to town searching for Mujahideen as they claim, however,
the truth is that they loot and attack Muslims. This type of behaviour
is due to the continuous and huge loses that Russian forces are
faced with on a daily basis from the Mujahideen.
A Courageous Operation in the Middle of Argun
Field Commander Arbi Barayev and his group launched a courageous
attack against Russian forces by driving an UZAK vehicle into
the city of Argun. The Mujahideen stopped the vehicle in the middle
of the city and in front of civilians, showered Russian soldiers
with bullets. The Mujahideen were able to kill four of the Russian
soldiers and injure one. Such a courageous operation has a strong
and an encouraging effect on civilians, for it encourages strength
and pride as they see the Russian soldiers walking in markets
altogether, full of fear, weakness and humiliation.
Deputy Commander of the Hypocrite Forces Assassinated
The Saif-Allah attack group assassinated the Deputy Commander
of the traitor hypocrite forces, Rabiak, in the area of Vedeno.
He was killed in this specialized operation dedicated to traitors,
and which is part of a continuing effort to get rid off all Russian
military leaders and hypocrites in Chechnya. We ask Allah, Most
High, to destroy them all.

2000 The Mujahideen Military Command Council Determined on Continuing
The president of the Mujahideen Military Command Council, Commander
Shamil Basayev, emphasized that all Muslims in the Caucasus must
unite against Russia, which has carried out the mass murder of
Muslims in Chechnya. Commander Basayev emphasized the ongoing
patience of the Mujahideen in continuing their resistance of aggression
from the Russian Kremlin.
Russian Admittance of its Own Mischief
Sergi Kufaliv, a member of the Russian Duma Council, announced
that Russia, as a member of the European Council, must provide
answers as to the continuous violation of human rights in Chechnya,
as well as to the retaliatory behaviour ranging from theft, kidnapping
and extreme violence from its forces. He also announced that he
is sure that Russia can not be left alone without punishment and
Russia should be expelled from the European Council as a start.
Various Military Operations
Mujahideen attack groups have carried out some military operations
during the past two days and due to some technical difficulties
and Russian check points through towns and cities, the news reports
have been late coming from our correspondents. Some of the general
public have reported some military activity specifically in the
capital Grozny, and many other activities like:
In the area of Indreifskoy, the Mujahideen had set up a
mine which destroyed a military jeep and two BTR vehicles. Eight
Russian soldiers were killed and two Mujahideen were injured,
in which one of them is in critical condition. May Allah, Most
High, cure all the injured Mujahideen and free them all from their
In the area of Saroberomslofskoy, a group of Russian forces
were in the process of setting up a temporary camp, when the Mujahideen
surprised them and pushed them back. This was after the Mujahideen
had destroyed a BTR and a UZAK vehicle, which burned completely
including all of its occupants.
16 Russian Soldiers Killed from a Mine in Argun
A group of Russian forces fell onto a mine in south Argun, which
had been set by the Mujahideen. After the explosion, the Mujahideen
attacked the group, in which they destroyed three BMP vehicles
and one URAL cargo truck. The Russians left behind 16 dead and
a number of injured soldiers.

2000 A call from the Mujahideen in Chechnya
All Praise is to Allah (SWT) and peace be upon His Prophet.
The Mujahideen in Chechnya are continuing their Jihad against
the aggressing, non-believing Russian forces with all their determination,
strength and patience. The Mujahideen in Chechnya are about to
face the harsh winter in which a lot of snow and ice will fall.
The winter season is the most difficult season the Mujahideen
face and they need to prepare for it with clothes, winter boots,
heating equipment and many other things in order to continue their
Jihad with the same vigor which caused the Russian forces so much
havoc during the spring and summer months.
The duty of all Muslims is to help their Mujahedeen brothers with
all means, so we urge all Muslims to make dua and despair in their
prayers for the Mujahideen in Chechnya.
We ask Allah to accept from the Believers their generosity and
to elevate them and to make Islam and the Muslims victorious through
May Allah's prayers and peace be on our Prophet Muhammad and on
all of his family and followers.
