By NIR ROSEN 01/08/2007 11:35 PM ET
The London based, Saudi owned Arabic daily, Al Hayat, reports that al Qaeda in Iraq killed Mohammed Mahmood, a leader of the 1920 Revolution Battalion in Saqlaqiya in Falluja. The 1920 Revolution Battalion is an Iraqi Sunni nationalist resistance organization named in honor of the uprising that began that year against the British occupation. The Battalion is said to be controlled by the Association of Muslim Scholars, led by Harith al Dhari and his son Muthana of the Zawba tribe from western Iraq. Dhari was often in conflict with Abu Musab al Zarqawi and his al Qaeda in Iraq organization.
