Palestine Islamic Jihad Issues Videos of Rocket Launchings Targeting al-Magdal and Ziqim in Israel, Claiming Responsibility for Additional Attacks, and Announces Israel’s Alleged Fear of the Group’s “Zero Hour”
By SITE Institute
May 23, 2006

Within the past day, May 22, 2006, and today, May 23, the Palestine Islamic Jihad (PIJ) has issued several communiqués, of which in two, the group claims responsibility for attacks in al-Magdal and Ziqim, in Israel, and providing videos of the launching of Krad and ?Quds-101? rockets used in three of four operations. The group states the attacks are in response to the assassination of the commander of al-Quds Brigades, Muhammad al-Dahdouh AKA Abu Obieda , in Gaza on Saturday, May 20, and jihad being the ?best choice? to reclaim their land.

In addition, PIJ issued a statement that Israel awaits the ?zero hour? of the group?s jihad operations and expected suicide bombings. The group notes that assassination operations are continued to be executed upon its members, but their rockets ?shower the Zionist cities on a daily basis? in southern Israel, purportedly causing a ?state of anxiety? amongst security forces.

The three videos and a translation of the messages are provided to our Intel Service members.
