Unknown militant group claims to have orchestrated Bat Ayin "axe attack"

April 4, 2009 9:58 P.M. (Updated: April 4, 2009 9:58 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - A previously unknown Palestinian militant group calling itself "the Palestine Strugglers Army" claimed to have orchestrated the Friday "axe attack" in the Bat Ayin settlement Thursday that saw one teenage settler killed and a young boy injured.

The group announced its hand in the plan Friday in a statement sent to Ma'an. It excused the delay in claiming the attack citing "security reasons."

In the statement the group also said, "As we rise, we attest that we prepared several operations which will shake the state of Israel."
