The Nasser Salah Addin Brigades, the military wing affiliated with the Popular Resistance Committees, have claimed that their fighters threw a flaming bottle at an Israeli patrol while the Israeli forces were combing the area east of the city of Beit Hanoun in the Gaza Strip, early on Monday morning.

In a statement, the Brigades said that this operation was in response to the Israeli crimes and aggressions, of which the last was the killing of five of the Brigades’ resisters this weekend in the As-Sabrah district.
