The Ahmed Abul Reesh Brigades, an offshoot of the Fatah Movement in Palestine, fired eight shells at the Israeli Negev towns of Sderot and Majdal, and towards an Israeli military outpost in central Gaza over the past 24 hours.

In a statement the armed wing said that on Thursday it launched three shells at Majdal city.

In another statement the same armed wing said that it hit an Israeli military outpost east of Bureij refugee camp, midnight Wednesday, with three missiles, and indicated that the post was used to protect a military airport close to the area.

In a third statement the same Brigades declared that one of its groups hit Sderot settlement late last night with two shells.

The armed wing clarified that those attacks were in retaliation to constant Israeli aggressions in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Israeli forces have fired over 2,500 artillery shells and missiles into Gaza this month, killing 27 Palestinians, inlcuding three children.
