BETHLEHEM (Ma\'an) -- The military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees said it fired 15 rockets into southern Israel on Tuesday in response to Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.
Abu Mujahed, spokesman of the Nasser Salah ad-Din Brigades, said Israel had started the escalation in fighting. Israel has killed six Palestinians since Monday in a series of airstrikes and tank shelling.
Abu Mujahed said the brigades fired 12 rockets across the border on Tuesday evening. The Palestinian resistance will not stand idle while Israel attacks the Palestinian people, he said in a statement.
