Gaza - Ma'an - Several homemade projectiles and mortar shells were launched from the Gaza Strip overnight Monday, most hit targets near Israeli towns in the western Negev according to statement from Palestinian military groups.

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), said in a statement that the group's fighters fired three homemade projectiles and three mortar shells at Sderot and Kfar Sa'd in the western Negev.

The Brigades' statement said the shelling was meant to assert that "resistance would continue."

Separately, the Al-Mujahidin Brigades, affiliated with the Fatah party, launched two homemade projectiles towards Sderot. They announced in a statement that the ceasefire agreement would not prevent them from continuing to resist Israeli aggression.

The Israeli response to the projectile launches was to lock-down Gaza crossings and prevent food, fuel and basic supplies from entering Gaza. Some Israeli leaders also called for assassination of the Palestinian factional leaders, and others have insisted the Israeli army conduct a wide-scale military invasion into the area.
