GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The militant wings of four Palestinian political groups claimed responsibility for rocket fire at southern Israel overnight Sunday.

The National Resistance Brigades, the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said that its fighters fired four "107 missiles" at the Negev on Monday.

Fatah's military wing, the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, said that fighters from the al-Asifa army have fired 35 rockets at southern Israel since Sunday.

An independent military wing, the al-Mujahadin Brigades, claimed to have fired three rockets, while the PRC's military wing, the al-Nasser Saladin Brigades, said it fired two rockets late Sunday.

The Israeli army said it had "targeted nine terror sites and concealed rocket launchers across the Gaza Strip," noting in a statement its attacks came after militants had fired over 25 mortars and rockets at Israel on Sunday.
