Abdullah Azzam Brigades (AAB)

The Abdallah Azzam Brigades was formed as an offshoot of al Qaeda for the purpose of hitting targets in the Levant and throughout the Middle East. AAB is responsible for numerous indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israeli civilians, which were launched from within Lebanon by the Ziyad al-Jarrah Battalions of the Abdallah Azzam Brigades. AAB releases propaganda on a routine basis. Over the past three years, the group has advocated for the overthrow of the Saudi government and called for an uprising in Lebanon, as well as voiced support for Syrian protesters.VideoVideo: 2012 Speech by Emir of Abdullah Azzam - "Message to Lebanon's Shi'ah" Click here for an English Translation of this speech

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to providehistorical perspective.TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists--only to convey reported information about theiractivities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources.
