Arab terrorists from Chechnya led by Abu-Valid were involved in the most notorious terrorist acts in Iraq (the explosion of the Jordanian Embassy, the UN mission and Imam Ali Mosque in Al Najaf), the Al-Qabas newspaper (Kuwait) reported referring to a well-informed source.
According to the data of the Arab special services, Abu-Valid (Abd Al-Aziz al-Hamidi from Saudi Arabia) was Khattab's deputy in Chechnya till March 2002. Later he led units of Arab and foreign terrorists. He might have penetrated to Iraq via Georgia, Turkey and Syria two months ago. All in all, about 3,000 terrorists from Al-Qaeda and other Islamic military units penetrated to Iraq since May, the newspaper said.
After the arrival of Mujaheddins, the actions of the Iraqi resistance which were earlier limited to separate attacks on US servicemen have boosted and acquired acute sabotage character.
Saddam Hussein's special services are, of course, experienced in masterminding terrorist acts and murders but more varied "Chechen experience" has become apparent in the last weeks, the newspaper said.
