Palestinian Islamic Jihad, one of the armed groups working in Gaza, said it fired the rockets in revenge for Israel’s killing of four Palestinian protesters on Friday.
Israel’s answer answered tens of goals in the Gaza Strip on Saturday.
A spokesman for the militants said an Egyptian mediated violence had been achieved.
“Following contacts between the Islamic Jihad leadership and the brothers in Egypt, it was agreed that a major weapon start will begin immediately, spokesman Daoud Shehab said.” Islamic jihad will follow the violent crimes if the occupation (Israel) does the same. “
Egyptian security officers have spoken separately for Israeli and Palestinian leaders in an attempt to restore peace along the border.
An Israeli military spokesman refuted views on Shehab’s comments and there was no immediate response from other Israeli officials. Israel rarely acknowledges that
Previously, Israel’s military spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus, Syria and Iran accused of joining the rocket attack.
“Arrangements and incentives were given from Damascus with a clear commitment from the Iranian revolutionary profession Al Quds’s strength, “said Conricus to reporters. “Our response is not limited geographically.”
Israel regularly accuses Iran of helping Gaza militants, but rarely levels the fee in connection with a particular rocket attack.
Shehab dismissed the claim as “an Israeli attempt to escape her responsibility” for Friday’s protest death.
No cases were reported from the heavy exchange of fire in either Israel or Gaza, ruled by the Islamist Hamas group.
The Israeli military said it held Hamas responsible for the events in Gaza. It said that its air force met more than 80 targets, including one used by Hamas as its headquarters, in response to more than 30 rockets launched in Israel. There was no immediate comment from Hamas.
The upturn began after the four Palestinians were killed on Friday during weekly protests. Israel said its forces were attacked with explosive devices and some protesters broke the border.
The Palestinians have protested along the border since March 30, requiring the end of an Israeli blockade and the right to return to countries they fled or driven from when Israel was founded in 1948.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, 213 Gazans have been killed by Israeli forces during protests. An Israeli soldier was killed by a Palestinian sniper.
About two million Palestinians are packed into the Gaza Strip, which is in a deep economic crisis. Israel says it holds a naval blocked and tight control of the country’s intersections with the enclave for security reasons.
Israel has hit many times in Syria during the seven-year civil war there, as it said, Iranian targets or Tehran weapons transfers to Hezbollah warriors.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a rare visit to Oman on Friday. Israel and some Gulf States share interest in limiting Iran’s influence in the region.
