The Izz Ad-Din Al-Kassam Brigades, the "military wing" of the Hamas terror organization, announced, Monday, that it was behind Sunday evening's launch of 15 rockets at Israeli targets. The group's statement claimed the attacks were in response to what it called continued Israeli aggression in Gaza.

Israeli aircraft had attacked sites in northern and southern Gaza in response to previous rocket launches.
