The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the terrorist organization Hamas, have claimed responsibility for today's shelling of Qiryat Shemona and its surrounding area.

In their statement, Hamas militants asserted that 40 Grad rockets were fired from southern Lebanon into Israeli territory on the morning of February 28.

They purportedly targeted the headquarters of the 769th Hiram Brigade and the Beit Hillel airbase.
