PFLP military wing not part of Gaza ceasefire

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The military wing of the PFLP, the Abu Ali Mustafa brigades, said Monday that they were not part of the ceasefire agreement between Palestinian factions and Israel.

The group claimed responsibility for firing two projectiles at southern Israel on Monday night, a statement from the group said.

“We will continue with resistance using all means to retaliate to all crimes the enemy commits against the Palestinian people.”

The group called on Palestinian factions and political parties to close ranks and maintain national unity in order to be able to face the occupation’s threats and crimes.

“Unity is our road to victory, liberation, and conquering occupiers,” the statement concluded.

Hamas spokesman Taher An-Nunu said Monday that factions in Gaza had committed to a truce with Israel.

On Sunday night, the Hamas-run security forces were "instructed to stop the shooting" against Israel, with police checking cars in the border area, and checkpoints set up at the entrance to every town in Gaza.

In the four days following the Eilat attacks, Israeli air strikes killed 14 Palestinians while more than 50 people were wounded.

Over the same period, militants fired more than 100 rockets and mortars at Israeli towns and cities in the south, killing one man and injuring more than 20, one critically.
