Gaza - Ma'an - National Resistance Brigades, the armed wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) claimed responsibility on Thursday for attacking Israeli Kibbutz of Kfar Aza with two homemade projectiles fired from Gaza.

Israeli sources reported this afternoon that just one projectile fired from northern Gaza landed near a Kibbutz, causing no damage.

"The shelling came in response to the Israeli ongoing violations against the Palestinians and as a confirmation that we [the brigades] to go with the Intifada and resistance until the occupation is out."

Israeli forces have killed seven Palestinians in three days in the Gaza Strip in attacks that have imperiled a ceasefire that went into effect in June. In response to the Israeli airstrikes and ground attacks, Palestinian fighters have begun to launch homemade rockets into areas bordering Gaza for the first time in months.

The DFLP fighters added in the statement that "any violation will be confronted similarly."
