US Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte said Friday that the US was considering the possibility that Al Qaida could expand its operations to Lebanon, Israel Radio reported. Negroponte said the possibility of Al Qaida's cooperating with Hizbullah could not be ruled out, despite the fact that Al Qaida is a Sunni organization and Hizbullah is Shi'ite. Al Qaida's number two, Ayman Al Zawahri, in a video marking the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, called on Muslims to fight "Zionist forces" in south Lebanon, and "set up a jihad base on the borders of Palestine."
