Hamas, Islamic Jihad claim joint responsibility for anti-Israeli fire

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories, May 29, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Gaza’s
Islamist rulers Hamas and an allied militant group claimed joint
responsibility on Tuesday for dozens of mortar rounds fired at Israel
throughout the day.

The military wings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad announced in a rare joint
statement their “joint responsibility for the striking of military positions
and Zionist settlements surrounding the Gaza Strip,” saying it was in
response to Israeli attacks targeting their positions in recent days.
