Ziyad Jarah Brigades Claim Tuesday's Low-Tech Rocket Strike on Israel

The Ziyad Jarah Brigades (ZJB), a unit of the 'Abdullah 'Azzam Brigades, issued a statement yesterday claiming the firing of a low-tech rocket at the Israeli town of Hula on Tuesday (Oct. 27). The ZJB are reportedly affiliated with al-Qa'ida Central (AQC), though the exact nature and level of this affiliation is debatable. It is named after Ziyad Jarah, one of the September 11, 2001 hijackers, who was Lebanese. I have written previously about the group HERE and HERE. The ZJB fired two low-tech rockets into northern Israel near the Lebanon-Israel border in September. The Israeli military in both instances retaliated by firing artillery shells into southern Lebanon.
