Gazan terrorists say rocket volley just ‘initial response’ to inmate death

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The so-called “Joint Operations Room” of various Palestinian terror factions in the Gaza Strip takes responsibility for the rocket fire on southern Israel.

In a statement, the collective, which includes both the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups, says the attack comes as a response to the death of Khader Adnan, a hunger-striking member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad who died in an Israeli jail overnight.

The Joint Operations Room add that the rocket barrage was just “an initial response to this heinous crime,” while calling the death of Adnan a “Zionist assassination.”
