"Qaeda-tied group claims attack on Israel" by Associated Press | October 30, 2009
BEIRUT - A Lebanon-based, Al Qaeda-linked group claimed responsibility yesterday for a rocket attack against Israel this week, saying it was in retaliation for the Jewish state’s crackdown on protesters at a Jerusalem shrine.

The assertion from a group calling itself the Battalions of Ziad Jarrah was made two days after a rocket was fired from Lebanon into northern Israel, causing no casualties. Lebanese troops subsequently found and dismantled four rockets in the village of Houla near the border with Israel.
"So that's a Katyusha? It's a glorified bottle-rocket! Hand-made so it cannot be traced, small enough to smuggle across a border, set up on a wood ramp meaning the perps didn't really care if it hit anything or not as long as it was seen. Qui Bono? Note also that Hula is very near the Litani River, known to be an objective of Israel. It has been the site of previous massacres committed by the Israelis." -- Wake the Flock Up
The claim of responsibility, made on a website often used by Islamic militants, could not be independently verified.

The group is named after a Lebanese militant who was among the 19 suicide attackers that carried out the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States. It has claimed responsibility for previous rocket firings across the border into Israel.
