A radical Jordanian Salafist-Jihadist cleric with ties to al-Qaida said on Saturday that jihadists from his country had planned to carry out a suicide attack in Israel,according to a Sunday report in Jordan's Albawaba news website.
Abu Muhammad al Tahawi said that Jordanian Salafist-Jihadists had wanted to carry out an attack but the plan had failed.
However, al-Tahawi said that Jordanian Salafists were "getting closer to Palestine via Jordan, Syria and Lebanon", according to the report.
"Our Palestinian brothers who are now in Aleppo [Syria] will then go to Israel to fight there," he said, speaking at a funeral ceremony for a Salafist killed fighting against Syrian president Bashar Assad's forces in Daraa, Syria.
