Ahrar Al-Jalil claim bulldozer attack

July 23, 2008 9:52 A.M. (Updated: July 23, 2008 9:52 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - The Ahrar Al-Jalil Brigades, Imad Mughniyya group, on Tuesday night claimed responsibility for bulldozer attack near the King David Hotel in Jerusalem that left 19 Israelis requiring medical attention.

In a statement received by Ma'an, the group named the bulldozer driver as Ghassan Abu Teir, and claimed that the operation came in response to Barak Obama's visit to Israel to the King David Hotel scheduled for Wednesday.

Doubt has been cast on the authenticity of the statement. The group has claimed responsibility for a large number of attacks that they are unlikely to have carried out.
