Israeli sources reported on Thursday that one Palestinian homemade shell was fired from the Gaza Strip at a Kibbutz in the Sha’r Ha-Negev Regional Council; no injuries were reported. So far, armed groups in Gaza have not issued any release claiming responsibility for the attack.

Meanwhile army sources said that sirens were sounded in the area and several settlements adjacent to the Gaza Strip.

The sources added that the shell landed in an open area in the Western Negev area, causing no damages or injuries.

This is the second time a homemade shell has been fired since the beginning of this week. A homemade shell was fired earlier this week by a group calling itself the Hawks, one of the armed groups of Fateh movement.

The truce was declared two weeks ago, it was achieved via Egyptian mediation between Hamas, which rules Gaza, and Israel.

Several armed groups in Gaza, especially the Al Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of Fateh, and the Al Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, were dissatisfied with the truce deal since it excluded the West Bank, as the army continued its invasions and assaults there.

The groups added that they will retaliate to the Israeli attacks against the Palestinian people, and that their retaliation will not be only in the Gaza Strip, but also in the West Bank.

In a press release published on its website, the Al Quds Brigades stated that Israel violated the truce 13 times this week.
