GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, said militants fired a projectile on an Israeli military jeep east of Gaza City's Ash-Shujayiya neighborhood on Wednesday morning.

According to a statement sent by the group, Israeli soldiers entered the area to rescue the targeted patrol.

The attack came after a series of three Israeli airstrikes hit targets across the Gaza Strip, injuring 10, including three women and two children.

In their statement, the brigades said they would remain steadfast to the option of resistance and would continue to confront "the crimes of the Israeli occupation."

An Israeli military spokesman said he was not immediately familiar with the report, and a spokeswoman later confirmed that no such incident had been reported.
