'Armed group' claims Gaza rocket attacks

Aug. 4, 2011 2:41 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 5, 2011 3:48 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A claim of responsibility has been issued for an attack Wednesday in which two rockets struck Israeli territory and prompted air raids early the next day.

The "Abdulla Azzam Brigades" said it fired Grad rockets toward Asheklon and Kiryat Gat.

In a statement, a spokesman explained that the attack was "a normal reaction to the occupation's crimes. Firing rockets will end when the occupation ends its attacks against the Gaza Strip."

Ma'an could not independently verify the group's claims.

Israeli aircraft fired on Gaza City early Thursday "in response to the rockets fired from Gaza at Israel's southern communities over the past few days," an army statement said.

Two air raids targeted military sites including one belonging to Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades, a Ma'an correspondent said. There were no reports of injury or damage following the attacks.
