GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Two resistance groups claimed to have launched projectiles at Israeli targets late Sunday night, in what statements said were in response to ongoing Israeli aggression against the people of Gaza.

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said fighters clashed with Israeli forces operating inside Gaza next to the Kissufim military gate, northeast of Khan Younis.

Shortly after the clash, the statement continued, the fighters fired mortar shells at an Israeli military post east of Khan Younis' Abu Aj-Jeen neighborhood.

Fighters from the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine also released a statement, saying a group from the National Resistance Brigades in central Gaza launched a projectile toward an Israeli military post.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was not aware of any shells launched from Gaza overnight.
