PFLP claims responsibility for projectile launch

Dec. 31, 2009 10:09 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 2, 2010 2:57 A.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – The armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) claimed they fired two homemade projectiles from Gaza into the Israeli town of Netivot on Thursday night.

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades said in a statement issued on Friday that the attack was “a confirmation of continued resistance.”

On Thursday night a military spokesman confirmed that one projectile landed in Netivot. There were no reports of casualties.

Israel waged a three-week war on Gaza last winter seeking to end such strikes, killing 1,400 Palestinians in the process. Launches of homemade projectiles, mortars, and rockets have been rare since the end of the war.
