Sheikh Hussein Atawi, the man who fired the rockets at Israel from South Lebanon on Friday and was captured later on by Lebanese security forces, said "I did it for Allah. I don't have any regrets and I am convinced that my actions were just. I support the people of Gaza who are being murdered by our enemy. The resistance is everyone's prerogative," reported the Lebanese newspaper " Al Akhbar' which is affiliated with Hezbollah.
Atawi was severely injured during the rocket launching following a technical malfunction.
