The radical Salafist jihadi group the Mujahideen Shura Council of Jerusalem (MSC), a relatively new consolidation of extremist Sunni Islamists operating in the Gaza Strip and in Sinai, claimed responsibility on Sunday for many of the rockets fired from Gaza in the recent round of violence.

The group, which shares an ideology with al-Qaida, has issued several statements calling for jihad against Israel and has previously claimed responsibility for several rocket attacks, including the June 18 attack that killed an Israeli civilian.

Late on Sunday, the MSC published several statements on jihadist forums claiming responsibility for rocket fire on a number of towns, including Netivot and Sderot.
