GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Leaders of an armed faction calling itself "Imad Mughniyya Group" on Sunday denied involvement in the killing of five Israelis from the same family in Itamar settlement overnight Friday.

West Bank affiliates of the group issued a statement Saturday claiming responsibility for the attack. But the faction's leadership in Gaza said it the group was not responsible, and that the brigade's struggle was for "freedom and dignity not killing and bloodshed."

The resistance had abandoned many attacks in the past due to the presence of children, the group said in a statement Sunday.

Israeli authorities have dismissed statements from the group in the past, as it has claimed responsibility for other operations that may have been the work of others. It is believed to be linked to Fatah.

So far, no other faction has claimed the attack, and the perpetrators remain unidentified.
