The following is a claim of responsibility for the assassination of former Lebanese PM Rafiq Al-Hariri. The statement is read by Ahmad Abu 'Adas of the so-called "Support and Jihad – Greater Syria" group. Al-Jazeera TV aired this statement on February 14, 2005

Out of support for our Mujahiddeen brothers in the land of the two holy places and in vengeance for their pure Shahids murdered by the Saudi regime's security forces in the land of the two holy places (Saudi Arabia), we have decided, after placing our trust in Allah to carry out the just punishment on the agent of this regime, his cheap tool in Greater Syria, the sinner Rafiq Al-Hariri, by carrying out this reverberating martyrdom operation that attests to our vow to support and wage Jihad and constitutes a prelude to many martyrdom operations against the infidels and the apostates from Islam and the tyrants in Greater Syria.
