10:52 EST Palestinian Islamic Jihan (PIJ), a radical militant group based in the occupied territories, said March 30 that it has sent its first group of soldiers to Iraq to fight against U.S. and British forces. The military wing of the group, the Al Quds Brigade -- al Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem -- sent a statement to Agence France-Presse, saying that it would fight along with other Arab volunteers to resist "the new Mongols that are invading the capital of the Islamic caliphate." Baghdad was sacked in the 14th century by invading Mongols. Also on March 30, PIJ claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in the northern Israeli coastal city of Netanya that left dozens wounded.
