Group: Explosive device hits Israeli jeep in southern Gaza Strip

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The military wing of the Democratic Front of the Liberation of Palestine claimed responsibility for an attack targeting an Israeli military jeep near the Kissufim military base east of the Gaza Strip on Saturday.

The National Resistance Brigades said in a statement that "the military site Kissufim was also targeted with three mortar shells in response to the ongoing Israeli attacks on unarmed Palestinians."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that "there was alarm in the area overnight," and an explosion was heard, but she said that Israeli forces were still searching the area.

On Friday, five Palestinian medics suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation after Israeli forces fired a tear gas canister at their ambulance in the northern Gaza Strip, a day after Israeli forces shot four Palestinians in two incidents near the border fence.
