A Palestinian jihadist made a dubious claim of responsibility for the ongoing wildfires in Arizona, which recently took the lives of 19 firefighters.
Since the deaths of Abu al Walid al Maqdisi and Ashraf al Sabah, a number of related statements and eulogies have appeared on jihadist forums.
Masada al Mujahideen has threatened to carry out attacks against Israel and Hamas in response to the assassination of Abu al Walid al Maqdisi, the former emir of the Tawhid and Jihad Group in Jerusalem.
More than 10 Egyptian soldiers were killed as an al Qaeda-linked terror group overran an outpost, seized two armored personnel carriers, and crossed into Israel. Israeli troops destroyed one of the APCs, and killed six terrorists. In a separate operation, the Israeli Air Force targeted a Mujahideen Shura Council “terrorist squad” that was plotting future attacks.
Abu al Walid al Maqdisi, the leader of the Tawhid and Jihad Group in Jerusalem, was freed after more than a year in prison. His release was announced by Masada al Mujahideen, one of six major jihadist groups operating in Gaza.
