Iraqi Resistance Islamic Front (JAMI)
Al-Zawra reported that the Iraqi Resistance Islamic Front (JAMI) first announced its existence on May 30, 2004. JAMI is believed to have been formed by a number of smaller Sunni resistance groups brought together by common political goals. The groups activities and attacks on coalition forces are primarily centered in the Ninawa and Diyala governorates.
Statements issued by the group have claimed responsibility for dozens of attacks carried out by the military wing of JAMI. The Salah-al-Din and Sayf-Allah al-Maslul Brigades of JAMI are also believed to be responsible for shelling coaltion command operations headquarters and the Mosul and Al-Faris airports. JAMI has also targeted U.S. Intelligence members in Mosul and have killed at least one U.S. soldier in the Diyala governorate.
