PRC armed wing claims attack on Israel 'airstrip'

Aug. 20, 2011 9:37 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 20, 2011 9:57 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees said its operatives launched a rocket attack on the Al-Maghazi airstrip east of Gaza early Saturday.

The An-Nasser Brigades said in a statement that the rocket was in retaliation for Israeli attacks that left dead the group's commander Abu Awad An-Nayrab and four others Thursday.

Israeli forces launched a series of strikes on targets across the Gaza Strip late Thursday, killing six people in Rafah in the south and a 13-year-old boy in Gaza City and injuring at least 18 others.

The operations came hours after a series of attacks killed eight Israelis near Eilat.

Earlier, the group said it fired shells at the Israeli cities of Beersheva and Ashkelon.
