Armed group claims shelling attack in Gaza

June 29, 2010 12:27 P.M. (Updated: June 29, 2010 8:51 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – A leftist Palestinian military group said its operatives launched two mortar shells at an Israeli target in the northern Gaza Strip early Tuesday morning.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine's Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades said its forces launched the shells at an Israeli force near the Erez crossing.

"This attack comes within our commitment to jihad and resistance and as a response to the crimes committed against us and our nation," the group said in a statement.

An Israeli military spokesman said he was not familiar with the report.

The last time a mortar shell was fired at an Israeli target was 24 hours earlier, he said.
