Nov. 14, 2008 9:58 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2008 9:58 A.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The Abu Ali Mustafa, An-Nasser and Al-Qassam Brigades claimed responsibility for the launch of 11 projectiles which landed near Ashkelon at dawn on Friday, and another five launched at 11:30.

In response to the first set of projectiles, the Israeli army launched an airstrike against the area they believed the projectile to have been fired. The Israeli army said two Palestinians were wounded in this attack.

Palestinian medical sources confirmed that four resistance fighters were taken to hospital with serious injuries after being injured in the Al- Atatra area north of Beit Lahia. They would not comment in the identities or affiliations of the fighters.

The brigades are the armed wings of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) and the armed wing of Hamas respectively.

According to Israeli media eight projectiles landed in the western Negev Friday morning and reported that one Israeli woman in Sderot was lightly injured.

The statement released by the Brigades said the attacks came in response to the escalating Israeli crimes against Palestinians in Gaza.

The PFLP and PRC jointly claimed three projectiles, while the Al-Qassam Brigades claimed eight, and another five later in the day.
