Al Quds brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad Movement, claimed  responsibility for shooting an Israeli soldier who was repairing the border fence near the Israeli town of Khuza’a, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, Thursday morning.

In a press release the brigades stated that the shooting was a response to the killing of the two resistance fighters east of Dair Al Balah Thursday morning and the ongoing invasions and arrests that the Israeli army has been conducting every day in the West Bank.
