Al-Qaeda affiliate claims responsibility for firing rocket into Israel

Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the rocket launched from south Lebanon into Israel , OTV reported on Tuesday .

It said in a statement that the rockets had “hit the targets ” adding it was the eighth rocket attack since the war between the Jewish state and Hezbollah ended in August 2006.

Israel retaliated by firing 4 rockets toward Aita al Shaab outskirts , a border village in south Lebanon .

There were no casualties from the rockets that were fired from southern Lebanon according to Israeli reports.

The Lebanese army said earlier on Tuesday that a military commission in coordination with UNIFIL is investigating the incident in which one rocket was fired from Lebanon toward Israel, National News Agency reported.

Later on Tuesday, the army and the UNIFIL found a rocket launchpad between Wadi Ain Ebel area and Rmaish, according to NNA.

A military spokesman confirmed to reporters that at least one rocket was fired from the region of Rmaish.

“We know that a rocket was fired from the region of Rmaish and we are investigating,” said the spokesman, who did not want to be identified.

Rmaish is largely controlled by Hezbollah, but an official from the group told AFP he had no immediate comment on Tuesday’s incident.

Israel claimed that several rockets were launched and held the Lebanese government responsible for the attack.

Abdullah Azzam Brigades is an Islamist militant group affiliated with Al-Qaeda .The group, which began operating in 2009 is named after the late Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, a Palestinian from Jordan who was among the first Arabs to volunteer to join the Afghan jihad against the forces of the then Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

    Impressive, they went all they way to Aita Saab, fired 4 rockets, got back to Ain El Hilwe and nobody caught? I smell a fish. 

    We all know what the security is like in the south, how protective people are of strangers entering villages as well as the security enforced by Hezbollah, Lebanese army and UNIFIL. The only people capable of defeating these layers are Hezbollah, army or UNIFIL.

    This was either done by Hezbollah or Explicitly Okayed by Hezbollah, as they know well it is enough to distract but not enough to start a war.

    Distraction from Syrian Crimes against humanity Report maybe? or to serve internal aims by distracting from STL at cabinet?

      Maybe just getting rid of some old Russian rockets before they blow up on the launch-pad. Or in a cave … :-)

    Someone with more political sway than Israel is going to have to go in and surgically remove the cancer that is growing in Lebanon.

    So Hezbollah kills a Lebanese Army Pilot for tresspassing on its property but let Al Qaada whom supposedly they despise shoot rockets from their own controlled territory. HA i advise you to be calm and quiet. You maybe stronger and tough but in the end it will mean not just your destruction but unfortunately all of a lebanon. You have done enough damage in 2006 and actually starting in 2005 by killing many lebanese leaders. so start defending Lebanon not for the sake of Syria and Iran but for the sake of lebanon as you started to be. Now get lost and let us leave in peace with our Israeli neighbors..
