Sirajeddine Zureiqat, a fugitive Lebanese cleric and spokesman for the Abdullah Azzam Brigades, warned that Sunnis in Syria and Lebanon are aiming to strike Hezbollah, and threatened more attacks such as the recent bombings in southern Beirut. Lebanese authorities deported a Frenchman who was on his way to carry out a suicide bombing in Syria for an al Qaeda-linked group; authorities also questioned a French citizen from the Comoros Islands arrested on June 20, who confessed to being recruited by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham for a suicide bombing.
