al-Murābiṭīn Foundation for Media Production presents a new statement from Jamā’at at-Tawḥīd wa-l-Jihād Fī Gharb Ifrīqīyyā: “Formation of the New Katībat ‘Anṣār al-Sunnah’ and Four Sarāyyās”
UPDATE 1/6/13 5:17 PM: Here is an English translation of the below Arabic statement:
Jamaat Al-Tawhid wa Al-Jihad in West Africa declare the forming the Ansar Al-Sunnah brigade which consist basically from sons of the region from the region especially Songay tribes, as well as forming four military companies:
1- Abdullah Azzam Company
2- Zarqawi Company
3- Abu Al-Laith Al-Libi Company
4- Martyrdom Seeker Company
This new organizational structure comes as result for widening the influence of the Jamaat and its control on the many regions and cities of north Mali and the increase in the number of the fighters in our ranks.
The brigades and companies of the Jamaat will be distributed in a way that align with the challenges that the region is facing internally and externally, in anticipation for any surprises that could occur for the security breach of foreign countries to the Jihadi project, especially Algeria that seek through special parties and tribal figures to secure it from the strikes of the mujahidin and in an attempt to weak the Jamaat by dividing its ranks and strike its unity by declaring the split of Salāh ad-Dīn brigade from the Jamaat, we deny that all the members of Majlis Shura of Salāh ad-Dīn brigade have agreed to this split as well as the fighting soldiers, but rather it is an individual act for the Amir of the brigade (Abu Ali Al-Ansari) and some of those close to him and it is an act that no doubt isn’t primarily in the interest of the efforts spent to unite the Jihadi factions that were set previously in a framework agreed upon by coordination, management and some military action mechanisms and joint action.
Therefore Jamaat Al-Tawhid wa Al-Jihad in West Africa understands well the intended attempts that are weaved by certain parties to drag it to change its strategy towards the apostate regimes and taking the path of the negotiations with the Malian authorities, because it is the demand of some of the peoples of the region and it was what the Amir of the Salāh ad-Dīn brigade called for before declaring his spilt.
Thus Jamaat Al-Tawhid wa Al-Jihad in West Africa pledges to launch attacks of wide geographical extension that targets the states of the apostate regimes that participate in preparing for the invasion of north Mali, after in the previous stage the throne of the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad was broken and following its remnants and the activity of the Mafias of drug smuggling was weakened.

الحمد لله قاهر الجبابرة وكاسر الأكاسرة وقاصم ظهور القياصرة والصلاة والسلام على من جُعل رزقه تحت ظل رمحه
تعلن جماعة التوحيد والجهاد في غرب إفريقيا عن تشكيل كتيبة أنصار السنة
وتتكون أساسًا من أبناء المنطقة وخاصةً قبائل السونغاي
بالإضافة إلى تشكيل أربع سرايا عسكرية وهي:
1- سرية : عبد الله عزام
2- سرية : الزرقاوي
3- سرية : أبو الليث الليبي
4- سرية : الاستشهاديين
وتأتي هذه الهيكلة التنظيمية الجديدة نتيجة توسع نفوذ الجماعة وسيطرتها على العديد من المناطق ومدن شمال مالي
وتزايد أعداد المقاتلين في صفوفنا ,
وستوزع كتائب وسرايا الجماعة بطريقة تتماشى مع التحديات التي تواجهها المنطقة داخليًا وخارجيًا
وتحسبًا لأي مفاجئات قد يحدثها الاختراق الأمني لدول خارجية للمشروع الجهادي وخاصة الجزائر
التي تسعى عبر جهات خاصة وشخصيات قبلية إلى تأمينها من ضربات المجاهدين
ومحاولة إضعاف الجماعة بشق صفها وضرب وحدتها بإعلان انشقاق كتيبة صلاح الدين عن الجماعة
حيث ننفي أن يكون كل أفراد مجلس شورى كتيبة صلاح الدين قد وافقوا على هذا الانشقاق
فضلا عن الجنود المقاتلين , بل هو تصرف انفرادي لأمير الكتيبة ( أبوعلي الأنصاري ) وبعض المقربين منه
وهو بلا شك تصرف لا يصب أساسا في مصلحة الجهود المبذولة لتوحيد الفصائل الجهادية التي وضعت مسبقا في إطار متفق عليه بالتنسيق والتسيير
وبعض آليات التحرك العسكري والعمل المشترك ,
وبناء عليه فأن جماعة التوحيد و الجهاد في غرب إفريقيا تعي جيدا المحاولات المقصودة التي تنسجها جهات معينة لجرها إلى تغيير إستراتيجيتها اتجاه الأنظمة المرتدة
وسلك طريق المفاوضات مع السلطات المالية , كونها مطلب لدى بعض شعوب المنطقة وهو ما طالب به أمير كتيبة صلاح الدين قبل إعلانه انشقاقه
وبتالي تتعهد جماعة التوحيد والجهاد في غرب أفريقيا بشن هجمات ذات امتداد جغرافي واسع يستهدف دول الأنظمة المرتدة التي تشارك في التحضير لغزو شمال مالي
بعدما كان في المرحلة الماضية كسر شوكة جبهة تحرير أزواد ومتابعة فلولها وإضعاف نشاط مافيات تهريب المخدرات،

New statement from Majlis Shūrā al-Mujāhidīn in Gao: “To the People of the Cities in Northern Mali About the Reason for Its Fight With the MNLA (the Secular Movement)”
UPDATE 11/27/12 2:31 PM: Here is an English translation of the below Arabic statement:
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله معز المؤمنين ومذل الشرك والمشركين والصلاة والسلام على سيد المرسلين محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم.
O’ slaves of Allah, Allah have created us and made the purpose of creating us is to worship him, the Almighty says: (And I have not created the jinn and the men except that they should serve Me) 56 Surah Adh-Dhariyat, and that worship won’t be achieved except by responding to the orders of Allah and implementing his Sharia, that’s why the mujahidin answered the order of Allah Almighty (And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee) 48 Surah Al-Maeda, and they began calling for the implementation of the Sharia between the people so they were fought by the governments of the apostate regimes which rule people with democracy and manmade laws and they jailed and tortured them, so they rose up and took up arms and began to fight the Tawagit, to be able to implement the Sharia between the Muslims for which we were created, and Alhamdulillah the mujahidin in northern Mali were able to crush the Tawagit who were oppressing people and imposing on them excises and taxes, and permit for them alcohol, immorality and adultery, and they were able also the Hudud of Allah and implement his Sharia between the Muslims in this land as is well known.
The mujahidin aren’t from a particular group of people but rather the brigades of the mujahidin consist of Ansar and Muhajirin.
The Ansar are people from the land (Fulas, Tamashiq, Zu Ishaq, Ansar Al-Sunnah, Sudanese, Tuaregs, Arabs, non-Arabs …. and others)
And the Muhajirin are people from outside the country (Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Algeria, Mauritania, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and France ….. and other)
This is something known and isn’t a secret to anyone (the Ansar and Muhajirin) that they have gathered and united to establish and implement the Sharia of Allah and Islam, and they are fighting for that.
The mujahidin took an oath on themselves to fight everyone who is an obstacle before implementing the Islamic Sharia and oppresses the Muslims.
And we in our war with the MNLA (National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad) this secular movement that doesn’t want the implementation of the Islamic Sharia, the mujahidin fought it because they became like the Tawagit we call them to resort to the Sharia of Allah but they refuse and they added to that their oppression to the Muslims by taking their money unjustly and killing them and their dividing of the Muslims, the black has no right and the white has right, when the messenger of Allah peace and blessings of Allah be upon him said: “O’ people, your Lord is one, and your father (Adam) is one, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety”. Narrated by Ahmed in his Musnad with an authentic chain of narrators.
For that and other reasons the mujahidin decided to fight this movement and crush it to repel its harm on the Muslims and the implement the Sharia of Allah between the people.
And to Allah belongs the might and to His Messenger and to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know.
