BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Factions in Gaza said they fired over 19 rockets into Israel on Saturday in response to Israel's shelling of Gaza City, which killed four people and injured over 30.

Islamic Jihad's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, said it fired 13 rockets towards the city of Ashkelon. The PFLP's Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades said it fired three rockets into the western Negev, while the Al-Mujahideen brigades claimed responsibility for 2 rockets.

Earlier, the Popular Resistance Committee said it had fired four rockets at communities close to the border and the towns of Sderot and Netivot in southern Israel, in what it called "the revenge invoice" for Israeli tank attacks on Gaza.

"We reaffirm the option of confrontation and resistance to the occupation, and we will continue our resistance and our military responses as long as the occupation continues," the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades said in a statement.

An Israeli army spokesman said 19 rockets were fired into southern Israel, with an additional projectile being shot down by Israel's Iron Dome system.

Earlier, Israeli tanks fired shells into Gaza City, killing four people and injuring at least 30. Israel's army said it was responding to a missile attack on an Israeli jeep which had injured four Israeli soldiers.

More war crimes from Gaza. Or simply more war from Gaza. Make your mind up, Gazans. Do you want war or peace? What do you think, you can shoot across the border into Israel and nothing will happen? You picked Hamas as your leaders, and they are very clear that they do not want peace. So stop complaining when people die during a war, because war is what you want and war is what you are getting.
