GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An armed group in the Gaza Strip claimed Tuesday that it launched missiles toward Israeli targets.

The missiles targeted the "Nirim settlement" east of Khan Younis at 7:50 p.m., a statement from the "Tawhid and Jihad" group said.

Nirim is an Israeli kibbutz near the border with southern Gaza.

The group said in the statement that its attack came as a response to Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.

An Israeli army official said the military had no knowledge of such an event, the Israeli news site Ynet reported late Tuesday. The group which claimed the attack is associated with Al-Qaeda, Ynet said.
