A terror group said to be affiliated with al-Qaida claimed Monday morning that it had launched Friday's attack on northern Israel in which two Katyusha rockets landed near Nahariya. "Your brothers fired two Katyusha rockets from south Lebanon which landed in the Nahariya settlement in the north of occupied Palestine," read a statement on terrorist Web sites quoted by Reuters. The statement cited Israel's Gaza blockade and the restrictions on Muslims wishing to pray in the Temple Mount's Aksa Mosque. The statement was signed by the Ziad al-Jarrah division of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades, and the headline linked the organization to al-Qaida, said Reuters.
