Gaza - Ma'an - Palestinian military organizations launched as many as 14 homemade projectiles into Israel from the Gaza Strip on Monday, a day after Israeli forces killed four Palestinian fighters.

The rockets were the latest attacks in an ongoing cross-border conflagration in which 15 Palestinians have been killed. As of Monday only one Israeli was lightly injured and others treated for shock after a projectile landed in a residential yard in the town of Sderot.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for a total of ten projectiles, fired in three separate attacks.

At noon the Al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility for launching eight projectiles into the Eshkol area, east of the Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis. In the late afternoon the group said it fired one projectile at the same area, and another at "the Western Negev."

The Brigades said these attacks were a "response to Israeli crimes."

Also in the late afternoon the National Resistance Brigades, the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) said they launched four projectiles at the Sufa Israeli military installation.

By evening Israeli media confirmed that "eight to 12" projectiles landed in Israeli territory on Monday. Most of the rockets landed in open areas, causing no damage. One local structure was damages.
