In a statement released in Western media outlets, the group threatened to carry out more attacks. "The month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God's messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators."


The organization is apparently affiliated with the Global Jihad movement.


Its statement said, "One of our groups aided by Allah managed to bomb a bus full of Jewish tourists, plunderers of holy lands, after careful tracking.


"The holy war is not confined to a particular arena and we shall fight the Jews and the Americans until they leave the land of Islam."


Israel and the US pointed a finger at Iran and Hezbollah following the attack.
