Shadowy group claims settlement attack

March 12, 2011 12:25 P.M. (Updated: March 12, 2011 1:12 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An armed faction calling itself the "Imad Mughniyya Group" has claimed responsibility for stabbing to death an Israeli family of five in the illegal settlement of Itamar in the northern West Bank.

Israeli authorities have dismissed statements from the group in the past, as it has claimed responsibility for other operations that may have been the work of others. It is believed to be linked to Fatah.

"Thanks to God almighty, fighters affiliated to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - Imad Mughniyya Group succeeded in attacking a settler home and killing its inhabitants," the group said in a statement.

"The fighter confirmed that at 1:15 (a.m.) he broke into the home and killed all five inhabitants. Zionist forces admitted the operation and the fighter returned safe and sound. This operation is a natural reaction to the massacres by the fascist occupation against our people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank."
