Armed groups in Gaza claim responsibility for shelling Israeli port

Jan. 30, 2010 2:07 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 30, 2010 4:42 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma'an – Various paramilitary groups in Gaza claimed responsibility for firing eight shells at the port of Ashkelon, Israel, a joint statement issued by the groups said.

The attack was undertaken in retaliation for "the assassination of the Al-Aqsa Brigades leaders in Nablus by Israeli forces," the statement said, which was issued by members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of Fatah, Islamic Jihad's armed group The Al-Quds Brigades, and the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, the An-Nasser Salah Ad-Ding Brigades.

An Israeli military spokesman said that they were "not familiar" with any such attacks on the port.
