YNet: Unknown group "Jihadi Resistance" claims Eilat attacks

From YNet:
An unfamiliar organization calling itself the "Jihadi Resistance" claimed responsibility for the terror attack in south Israel last Thursday, in which eight people were killed.

The organization's spokesperson claimed the operation's aim was to assassinate Defense Minister Ehud Barak, adding that the organization will release a video of the attack in the upcoming days. The report could not be verified.
I could not find any Arabic site mentioning this unless they were quoting Yediot, so I don't know where this original announcement can be found online.

So did this organization call YNet directly?

It would make life much easier if the media sites would give links the way bloggers do. They still act as if they hold a monopoly on information - and how to interpret it.
