Beirut: A Lebanese group loyal to Al Qaida vowed Tuesday to keep up its attacks against Iran, Hezbollah and Israel, less than a fortnight after the death of its leader, Majid Al Majid.
The Saudi-born Al Majid, which claimed responsibility for a November attack on the Iranian embassy in Beirut, died after his arrest by Lebanese authorities.
“His project will continue, God willing, in striking Iran, its party [Hezbollah] and the aggressor Jews [Israel], and in defending oppressed Sunnis everywhere,” the Abdullah Azzam Brigades said in an online statement.
The statement also lashed out against Lebanon for “arbitrarily detaining” Islamists, and said Lebanese miliary intelligence was under the control of “Iran’s party,” a reference to Shiite group Hezbollah.
