Fatah wing claims responsibility for Wednesday stabbing attack

Feb. 12, 2010 7:17 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 13, 2010 10:48 A.M.)
Bethlehem – Ma'an – The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah's armed wing, claimed responsibility on Friday for the stabbing death of an Israeli soldier near Nablus on Wednesday.

Abu Al-Majd, a leader of the armed wing, identified the attacker as Muhammad Al-Khatib, the same Palestinian who Israeli forces took into custody on suspicion of carrying out the attack.

"Al-Khatib, a brigades activist, carried out this attack in response to ongoing Israeli attacks on Palestinians and the assassination of three brigade affiliates in Nablus two months ago," Al-Majd said in a phone interview.

Al-Majd threatened that the Fatah-affiliated faction would carry out more "substantive" attacks in the near future. He also said the delay in claiming responsibility was for security reasons.
