Gaza - Ma'an - The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for launching two homemade projectiles at the Israeli town of Sderot, in the Western Negev desert, on Wednesday afternoon.

The organization said, "This came in retaliation for Israeli aggression in the central and eastern Gaza Strip which killed six and wounded dozens of civilians on Tuesday."

In a statement received by Ma'an the Brigades vowed to fire more homemade rockets at Israeli targets near the Gaza Strip.

Israeli sources confirmed that two projectiles landed in an open area near Gaza, causing neither damage nor injuries.

Separately the National Resistance Brigades, the military wing of the Democratic Front forthe Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) claimed responsibility for launching 3 mortar shells against an Israeli military site east of Juhor Ad-Dik south Gaza on Wednesday evening.

The National Resistance Brigades said they "woud not remain silent" in the face of Israeli attacks.

Israeli tanks and unmanned aerial drones attacked the Gaza Strip late on Tuesday night in a deadly strike that broke a months-old Egyptian-brokered ceasefire.
