Islamic Jihad says Gaza rocket fire a response to Israeli strike in Damascus

Islamic Jihad’s military wing claims responsibility for the recent rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

“We, in the al-Quds Brigades, declare that we are responsible for the bombardment of the usurped lands with rocket barrages this afternoon in response to the crime of targeting Damascus and assassinating the two martyrs, Ziad Mansour and Salim Salim,” it says in a statement.

It adds: “We, in the al-Quds Brigades, are ready to confront any aggression. The enemy should know that if it continues [to carry out aggression], we will respond with force and efficiency.”
