JNS.org – Salafi terrorists in Gaza who have aligned with Islamic State on Thursday claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s launching of two rockets at Israel and vowed more attacks on the Jewish state. The Islamic State supporters are also in the midst of fighting Gaza-ruling Hamas.

On Wednesday evening, two rockets aimed at the Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Netivot were fired from Gaza. A new group of Salafi jihadists dubbed the Sheikh Omar Hadeed Brigade claimed responsibility for the rockets on Twitter, saying the attack on Israel was retaliation for Hamas killing a local Salafi leader in northern Gaza on Tuesday.

“Seeing as Hamas has chosen to rage war against the Salafi jihadis to appease outside foreign agendas against the Gaza citizens, we the Sheikh Omar Hadeed Brigade have chosen to keep our weapons pointed at the Israelis,” the group said in a statement.

Israel retaliated on Thursday by launching airstrikes on three terrorist training camps in Gaza belonging to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist groups. Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said that Israel holds Hamas accountable for all rocket attacks emanating from Gaza, even “if those doing the shooting are rogue gangs from global jihadi groups trying to challenge Hamas by shooting at us.”

    Jews were NOT responsible!
