The Abdul Qader al-Husseini brigades on Thursday claimed responsibility for an attack launched from Syria on the Golan Heights.

The military wing of the Free Palestine Movement said in a statement it was “avenging all our martyrs that we lost in our war with the Zionist enemy.”

The brigades said that militants fired projectiles at dawn on Wednesday to mark the anniversary of what Palestinians term the Nakba — or catastrophe — of Israel’s founding in 1948.

The terror group said it had received permission from Syria to launch the attack, following recent Israeli airstrikes on Syria.

Israel’s military said several rockets fired from Syria landed in the Golan Heights on Wednesday.

“Around 6 a.m. several rockets landed in the Hermon area on the Syria-Israel border,” an Israeli army spokeswoman told the PA controlled Ma’an news agency. The tourist destination was subsequently closed to visitors.
