Gaza militant group pledges resistance of Jewish Jerusalem

Aug. 26, 2011 1:38 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 26, 2011 1:39 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A little-known militant group in Gaza said Friday it would continue "resistance to liberate Palestine and its capital Jerusalem."

The Al-Aqsa Brigades -- Imad Mughniyeh Martyrs said in a statement marking Al-Quds Day that all factions and Jerusalem organizations should work to oppose Israel's attempt to impose a Jewish identity on Jerusalem.

Al-Quds Day is marked across the world by Palestine solidarity activists on the last Friday of Ramadan. State-sponsored rallies are also held in Iran.

The Imad Mughniyeh Martyrs, named after a Hizbullah leader killed in 2008, have been variously tied to the Lebanon-based group, Islamic Jihad in Gaza, and militants who left Fatah-affiliated Al-Alqsa Brigades.
