The Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group’s armed wing claimed responsibility for a thwarted bid to infiltrate Israel from Lebanon on Monday, as war rages between Gaza militants and Israel.

“Al-Quds brigade claims responsibility for the afternoon operation on the south Lebanon border,” the group said in a statement.

The Israeli army had earlier said it “killed a number of armed suspects” who had crossed the border from Lebanon.
