GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Palestinian resistance groups continued to lob missiles and homemade projectiles towards Israeli cities southward and northward.
Some groups released statements claiming responsibility for rocket attacks, while others didn’t.
The military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, the al-Nasser Salah Addin Brigades, said in a statement that its fighters fired six projectiles at the Israeli settlement of Zekeim.
Similarly, the National Resistance Brigades, a military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and the al-Asifa Army, an offshoot of Fatah’s al-Aqsa Brigades, said in a joint statement that their fighters fired two Grad missiles at Eshkol regional council.
The fighters were targeted by Israeli warplanes, but they survived, according to the statement.
In a separate statement, the National Resistance Brigades said four homemade projectiles were fired at Ashkelon.
The groups said in their statements that the shelling was in retaliation to the Israeli aggression on the Palestinian people.
