The "al-Ayyash Brigades" terrorist group claimed to have again fired a rocket toward Israeli territory on Thursday morning, with the IDF stating later that it had found rocket shrapnel in Palestinian territory
The IDF stressed that the rocket did not pose a danger to Israelis.
The Gilboa Regional Council announced on Thursday that the launch site of the rocket was found as well in Palestinian territory near the town of Ram-On.
The Brigades stated that they had launched what they called a "Qassam 1" rocket, adding that "We say to this stupid enemy that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line that we will not allow to be crossed."
While the al-Ayyash Brigades claims that it is linked to Hamas's al-Qassam Brigades, the Jenin branch of the al-Qassam Brigades has in the past denied in connection to the group and has denied any responsibility for the rocket fire.
This is at least the third rocket fire attempt reported by the al-Ayyash Brigades in the past two months, with at least two additional attempts announced since June.
Israeli forces thwarted attempts by PIJ to produce rockets earlier this year
In May, Shin Bet head Ronen Bar revealed that Israeli security forces had thwarted an attempt by a Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist cell to produce rockets and a launcher in the Jenin refugee camp.
Tareq Ezzaldin, a spokesperson for the PIJ who was assassinated by the IDF in the Gaza Strip during Operation Shield and Arrow, had been coordinating attempts to produce rockets in the West Bank, according to Bar.
