GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian militant groups in Gaza on Tuesday claimed responsibility for a number of rockets fired into Israel over the course of the day.

Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, said in a statement that they will keep targeting Israeli sites and settlements with missiles and shells, and that they will continue defending Gaza.

The Brigades claimed responsibility for targeting Ashkelon with two grad rockets, as well as an Israeli military vehicle in eastern Khan Younis with five mortar shells.

The Hamas-affiliated al-Qassam Brigades, meanwhile, claimed responsibility for targeting soldiers in eastern area of al-Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City with three mortar shells.

They also claimed an attack on an armored troop carrier in Kisufim, inside Israel east of Khan Younis, with a cornet rocket, hitting it directly.
