The al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad's military wing, claimed
responsibility Tuesday evening for the rocket fired at Sderot, which wounded
two youths. One youth sustained critical wounds and the other was moderately
to severly injured.
The organization said that the attack came in response to "the Israeli violations of the ceasefire.
Abu Abdallah, a spokesman for the al-Quds Brigades, told Ynet that the attack was done in the framework of a response to a series of ongoing
breaches of the ceasefire by Israel .
"As far as we are concerned, the calm has collapsed since Israel has
continued to arrest Palestinian activists, including head of the Islamic
Jihad in Jenin Sheikh Muhammad Saidi, who was arrested Tuesday morning."
According to him, "The Israelis have not stopped their breaches, and since
the ceasefire has taken effect, they wounded eight residents of northern
Gaza and several fishermen in the southern Strip, so there is no calm."
'Israel arresting, Killing Palestinians in West Bank'
Abu Abdallah added that his organization has already announced that it will
not differentiate between the Gaza Strip and the west Bank.
"They talk about calm in Gaza, but continue to arrest and kill Palestinians
in the West Bank. We do not accept this separation and any Israeli breach in
the West Bank will be met with a similar response of more and more Qassam
fire which our fighters are continuing to improve."
He also said that the organization is working on a series of suicide attacks
in Israel and does not settle for rocket fire.
On Tuesday morning it was cleared for publication that in early November a
joint Shin Bet and IDF force apprehended a senior al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades
member who later admitted to killing Israeli Maryk Gavrielov in Ramallah six
Muhammad Saidi, a resident of the al-Amari refugee camp near Ramallah, said
during his interrogation that he and Atzam Faruah, an al-Aqsa member jailed
in Israel since 2003, killed Gavrielov in October 2000.
