Resistance Committees: “We bless the operation (i.e., terror attack) in Eilat and are proud of it”

On August 18, 2011, several Palestinian terrorists armed with rifles and bombs carried out a series of coordinated terror attacks near Eilat killing 6 civilians, a soldier and a security officer. The following is a response to the terror attack by the organization behind the attack, the Popular Resistance Committees:
     "Abu Mujahid, speaker for the Popular Resistance Committees, told Agence France-Presse, as he participated in the funeral procession in Rafah: 'We bless the operation (i.e., terror attack) in Eilat and are proud of it, but we do not claim responsibility for it.'" He added: 'The occupation wants to attribute the Eilat operation to the Resistance Committees in an attempt to close the case on and escape from its internal crisis.'"
