Group holds rally after rocket fired from Gaza Strip lands in Sderot
The spokesman of Hamas’s military branch threatens Israel that calm from Gaza will cease if the blockade of the Strip continues.
Speaking at a military show in the town of Rafah in southern Gaza, Abu Obieda, spokesperson for Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, says, “The siege will not prevent the Qassam Brigades from developing its abilities, and shall not serve the the continuance of the state of calm.”
“Whoever plants the anger will reap a volcano,” the Hamas spokesperson warns.
Gaza-based Salafi group Aknaf Beit al-Maqdis claims responsibility for a rocket fire from the Gaza Strip earlier today which landed in the southern Israeli city of Sderot.
The rocket, the first fired from the Strip since early July, caused no injuries or damage, police said.
In response, the IDF struck two “Hamas terror bases” in the northern Gaza strip. Two Palestinian men were lightly injured by shrapnel, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.
