In brief: Yes
Lifting or any kind of strenuous exercise will increase the blood pressure.
If this happens in a sudden fashion then conceivably the aneurysm can rupture. A lot depends on the size of the aneurysm as well.

In brief: It may
But, not necessarily.
Even non-lifting does not prevent rupture. Goes to show that there are many reasons for rupture. Take care of it before it ruptures. Have it evaluated by a specialist.
