Jihad denies leadership involved in Tel Aviv bombing
www.chinaview.cn 2005-03-05 19:39:16

    GAZA, March 5 (Xinhuanet) -- A senior Islamic Jihad (Holy War)leader denied on Saturday the group's leadership had any involvement in a Tel Aviv night club bombing which killed five Israelis and wounded 50 others.

    Khaled al-Batesh told reporters the movement's armed wing Sarayaal-Quds carried out the attack out of their own accord. The movement's political leadership, based either in the Palestinian territories or abroad, was not involved, he added. He said Jihad was not interested in violating a calmness deal reached with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

    A 21-year-old Jihad militant Abdullah Badran carried out the suicide attack in Tel Aviv on Feb. 25, shattering a lull of violence since Abbas was elected Palestinian president. Batesh said his movement will participate in an inter-Palestinian dialogue due on March 15 in Cairo. Enditem
