Lebanon: Abdullah Azzam Brigades, al-Qaeda-linked group claims responsibility for Israel rocket attack
A group linked to al-Qaeda on Tuesday claimed responsibility for an overnight rocket attack from southern Lebanon against Israel, a local website announced.
Elnashra website said it had received an email from the Brigades of Abdullah Azzam claiming responsibility for the attack.
“Early this Tuesday, rockets from the Brigades of Abdullah Azzam shelled the Zionist colonies in northern Palestine… and reached their aim,” the email message reads.
