SITE: Lebanon group claims rocket fire on Israel
 
Brigades of Abdullah Azzam, Battalions of Ziad Jarrah says responding to Al-Aqsa clashes.
 
DUBAI - A group claims it fired the Katyusha rocket attack from Lebanon that hit northern Israel earlier this week, a US-based group that monitors websites said on Thursday.

The Brigades of Abdullah Azzam, Battalions of Ziad Jarrah, said it was responsible for Tuesday's attack, according to a statement released on Thursday by the Al-Fajr Media Centre, SITE Intelligence Group said.

The group said it had prepared five rockets but only fired one, adding that the attack was to protest a Sunday raid by Israeli police on occupied Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

"The occupying Jews have dared to repeatedly raid the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque ... In response to this aggression, a battalion among the Battalions of Ziad Jarrah" fired the Katyusha, it said.

Israeli occupation forces twice entered Al-Aqsa mosque compound on Sunday and clashed with Palestinian youths.

Israel retaliated to the attack with an artillery barrage. No casualties were reported in either case.

Abdullah Azzam is the name of Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden's mentor. He was killed in a 1989 bomb blast.

Lebanese Ziad Jarrah is the name of one of the alleged plotters of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

He is believed to have been one of the hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93.

Lebanon Rocket Fire on Israel Claimed by Qaida-Linked Group

The Brigades of Abdullah Azzam, a group linked to Al-Qaida, claimed it fired the Katyusha rocket from Lebanon that hit northern Israel last Tuesday.

A group linked to Al-Qaida claims it fired the Katyusha rocket attack from Lebanon that hit northern Israel earlier this week, a U.S.-based group that monitors jihadist websites said on Thursday.

The Brigades of Abdullah Azzam, Battalions of Ziad Jarrah, said it was responsible for Tuesday's attack, according to a statement released on Thursday by the Al-Fajr Media Centre, SITE Intelligence Group said.

The group said it had prepared five rockets but only fired one, adding that the attack was to protest a Sunday raid by Israeli police on Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

"The occupying Jews have dared to repeatedly raid the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque ... In response to this aggression, a battalion among the Battalions of Ziad Jarrah" fired the Katyusha, it said.

Israeli police twice entered Al-Aqsa mosque compound on Sunday and clashed with stone-throwing Palestinian youths, after Muslim leaders called on their followers to defend the site.

The flashpoint site is holy to both Muslims, who call it Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary), and to Jews, who refer to is as Temple Mount.

Israel retaliated to the attack with an artillery barrage. No casualties were reported in either case.

Abdullah Azzam was Al-Qaida chief Osama Bin Laden's mentor. He was killed in a 1989 bomb blast.

Lebanese Ziad Jarrah was one of the plotters of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States which destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York and killed nearly 3,000 people.

He is believed to have been one of the hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania, killing all aboard.(AFP)
