Saraya Al Quds, the armed resistance wing of the Islamic Jihad party, claimed responsbility today for the bombing of the southern Israeli town of Sderot..

Members of the group told PNN that the three homemade projectiles fell on the town early Thursday morning.

The Israeli army has announced that several citizens of Sderot were injured, and that a great deal of infrastructure was damaged. In addition, the army specified that the attacks created a sense of panic among the residents. While the people of Sderot are used to attacks from the Gaza Strip, due to their proximity, the homemade projectiles rarely do any damage.

Saya Al Quds issued a statement after the attack that emphasized that the bombing comes in response to the Israeli warcrimes being committed in the Gaza Stirp and Lebanon. Members stressed that resistance is now the only option for the Palestinian people.
