The Gaza based Islamic Jihad organization denied that it was behind Thursday's rocket attack against Israel which originated from Syria.

"This is an attempt to distract from the interest surrounding Muhammad Allan," the organization said, referring to the Palestinian hunger striker and Islamic Jihad member who ended his strike on Thursday after 66 days.
