The Arab Islamic Resistance Release New Video

(Arab Islamic Resistance)
The Arab Islamic Resistance (AIR) released a new 10-minute video showing a military drill undertaken by the group's fighters under the name The "Zi-Qar Drill." The video showed a small number of fighters, including women and children, training in a mountain area on the use of firearms.

The Arab Islamic Resistance is a Lebanese Shiite militant group that presents itself as an Arab-oriented resistance alternative to the militant Shiite Lebanese Hizbollah group. It was set up last January by Shiite cleric Sayyed Moahammed al Husseiny, Secretary General of the Islamic-Arab Council.

The group is suspected to have fired a number of rockets towards the north of Israel last January. Hizbollah denied being behind the attack, but the AIR never claimed responsibility.
