New Palestinian military groups surface in Gaza

April 10, 2011 11:27 A.M. (Updated: April 12, 2011 12:53 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – New Palestinian military groups in the Gaza Strip have claimed responsibility, for the first time, for firing missiles at Israeli targets bordering the strip.

The "Abdullah Azzam Brigades - Marwan Haddad division - in the Levant" claimed responsibility Sunday for firing a Grad missile at the Israeli city of Ashkelon and two homemade projectiles at the Zekeim military base.

“The shelling is part of ongoing retaliation to the crimes committed by the Zionists who were known for killing prophets. This will continue until the Palestinian land is liberated and Tawhid flag is raised,” a statement by the new group read.

Another group, identified as the "At-Tawhid and Al-Jihad - Beit Al-Maqdis," claimed responsibility for launching a homemade projectile at the Nahal Oz military base.

For its part, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, the An-Nasser Salah Ad-din Brigades, said in a statement its fighters fired three mortar shells towards Nahal Oz.

The group claimed responsibility for another attack on the "Al-Ein settlement" east of Khan Younis firing one homemade projectile, a third on Netivot firing two projectiles and a fourth on Kibutz Ra’eim firing one homemade projectile.

Meanwhile, Islamic Jihad’s Al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility for launching four mortar shells at the Kerem Shalom area in the early morning Sunday.
