GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A militant group in the southern Gaza Strip said they fired mortar shells at Israeli military vehicles operating east of Khan Younis on Monday afternoon.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she had received no reports of attacks on Israeli forces operating inside Gaza.

The An-Naser Salah Ad-Din Brigades, affiliated with the Popular Resistance Committees, said their artillery unit was able to launch two shells at a force which entered the Strip at 12:35 p.m.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, said their fighters also launched a number of mortar shells at the same Israeli unit.

Late Sunday night, two resistance groups claimed to have launched projectiles at Israeli targets.

A wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, said fighters clashed with Israel forces at the southern Kissufim military gate. The group also claimed to have fired mortar shells at an army post east of Khan Younis' Abu Aj-Jeen neighborhood.

Meanwhile National Resistance Brigades fighters, affiliated to the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said they launched projectiles toward an Israeli military post.

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