Al-Aqsa claims responsibility for Ramallah attack

May 14, 2010 10:08 P.M. (Updated: May 16, 2010 10:26 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - A shooting attack that lightly injured two Israelis late Friday was carried out by Fatah's armed wing, the group said.

In a statement, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said its forces opened fire on a car belonging to settlers near the Ramallah junction at 6:45pm.

The group's forces confirmed a direct hit on the vehicles occupants, the statement said.

The attack came in response to the murder of a Palestinian boy by Israeli settlers the day before, the statement said.

It also amounted to a rejection of the expected start of indirect peace negotiations between Israel and the PLO, the statement concluded.
