Jund Ansar Allah, the military wing of the Al-Ahrar movement in Gaza, has accepted responsibility for five mortars fired in the direction of the Kerem Shalom border crossing. None of the mortars managed to reach Israel.
Earlier, an explosion was reported near a military outpost belonging to the Popular Resistance Committees near the Rafah border. Apparently the explosion was a result of premature explosion by a rocket attempting to be launched. (Elior Ley)
