Report: al-Qaida group admits to attacking Israel to hurt Hizbullah

A terror group affiliated with al-Qaida admitted to trying to harm Hizbullah by launching missiles from Lebanon into Israel, a Lebanese newspaper reported on Thursday. According to the report, the admission came during an interrogation of members of the al-Qaida group who were arrested a few months ago on suspicion that they planned to assassinate Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The detainees also admitted to planning attacks against UNIFIL forces in Lebanon in an attempt to complicate matters between Hizbullah and the United Nations.
