The Al Aqsa martyrs brigades, the armed wing of Fatah, claimed responsibility for firing a homemade shell at the Natif Etzra Settlement and another into Sderot, an Israeli town near the Gaza strip, Monday morning.

In their press release, the group confirmed that the attack comes as a response to the Israeli killing of a Palestinian fighter from Al Quds brigades on Monday morning and the assassination attempt that was targeted the leader of Al Aqsa martyrs brigades on Sunday night.
