A spokesperson from Al-Quds Brigades warned early Saturday morning that armed Palestinian groups would not hesitate to confront Israel if strikes on the Gaza Strip continue. Speaking to the Palestinian Ma'an news agency, Abu Ahmad said, "Israel's escalation in Gaza is part of an ongoing effort by the occupation forces to provoke us into renewed violence." The spokesman from Islamic Jihad's armed wing also commented on successful tests of the Iron Dome missile defense system, saying that Israel "can't cope with our rockets." The comments came hours after Palestinian terrorists fired three Kassam rockets, into the western Negev. No casualties or damage were reported in the attack. On Thursday night, the Israeli Air Force struck four targets in the Gaza Strip in response to the firing of a Katyusha rocket which landed near Ashkelon earlier in the night. The air force targeted several smuggling tunnels, as well as a tunnel which the army said was intended for infiltration of terrorists into Israel. A weapons manufacturing facility was also bombed.
