An unknown Palestinian group, the Abdul Qader al-Husseini brigades, on Thursday claimed responsibility for firing rockets on Wednesday at an Israeli observation point in the Golan Heights to mark Nakba Day.

The group apparently referred to the mortar shells which landed in the Mount Hermon area for the first time.

"We are avenging all our martyrs that we lost in our war with the Zionist enemy," the brigades said in a statement. The group posted a video online showing what it says is footage of the attack.

The Jerusalem Post is unable to verify the content of the footage.
