Mortars fired into Israel from Gaza

Four mortar shells fired from Gaza hit southern Israel, damaging a car and an irrigation hose.

The al-Quds Brigade, the military wing of the terrorist group Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attacks.

No one was injured by the mortars.

This week’s attacks come on the heels of three long-range Grad-style missiles being fired into Israel a week ago, one narrowly missing a wedding reception in the southern city of Netivot.
