There has been some rumblings over the internet, but this would not be the first time this story was rumored. It was first posted yesterday at The Jawa Report that AL-Zarqawi was “serious injured, possibly dead.” Also, it is believed that according to this account, “Zarqawi was to have been injured in the major offensive, Operation Matador, US-led forces have been carrying out in the western Anbar province over the last few days.”
Baghdad, 11 May (AKI) – The Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is “serious injured, possibly dead” according to Colonel Fouad Hani Hassan, commander of the fifth division of the Iraqi armed forces, cited by ‘Elaph’, a popular website in the Arab world. Al-Zarqawi, considered al-Qaeda’s leader in Iraq, is believed to have been injured in the major offensive US-led forces have been carrying out in the western Anbar province over the last few days.
While Operation Matador is not specifically aimed at catching al-Zarqawi, Brig. Gen. James Conway told a Pentagon news briefing on Tuesday that “it would be a welcome event to come across him or his body.”
Despite the increase in the terrorists attacks in Baghdad the terrorist groups especially of the Jordanian Abomusab Zarqawi suffered sever damages in the last few weeks.
Since the middle of April most of the members of the closest circle to Zarqawi have been arrested or killed.
Possibly Zarqawi has been killed during these attacks. The statement of his groups were today issued under the name of his deputy (Abo-Abdrahmn) and a finger print for his DNA test has been requested from Jordan. On the other hand the doctor who treated him in Ramadi confessed that his injuries were more or less fatal.
The Gateway Pundit is doing a great “Carnival of Zarqawi” hopeful demise. Such news would change the course of events in Iraq and the war on terror. Is it possible that the laptop computer that the US military seized could be leading to these course o events.
And seeking to offer some positive information on the battle against the insurgency, General Myers said his troops were “close” to capturing Zarqawi when they seized his laptop.
In discussing this with the Gateway Pundit today it just seems just too coincidental that all these events are occurring at the same time. First the laptop is seized with all its valuable information. Letters seized discussing terrorism low moral. Then the marines attack and have an offensive in western Iraq all of the sudden. They have been making arrests and capturing or killing those closest to Zarqawi.
Lets hope that this is the tipping point we have been waiting for.
