Hamas claims responsibility for anti-tank missile attack; mortars fired from Gaza at border area

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's religions and Diaspora affairs correspondent.

The Hamas terror group has taken responsibility for the anti-tank guided missile attack that left two critically wounded and one person in serious condition.

“The Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’s military wing) targeted a Zionist enclave with a guided missile in the northern Gaza Strip,” the group says in a statement.

Immediately following the attack, terrorists in the Strip fire mortar shells throughout the area.

This is apparently an effort to keep medical teams away from the area.
