Gaza Strip

(Worthy News)-- A jihadist group with Islamic State ties claimed responsibility for a Friday mortar attack at a Hamas base in the Gaza Strip, the Jerusalem Post reported.

According to AFP, witnesses at the scene said they heard explosions at the base, close to Khan Yunis. Information of any damage or injuries was not reported.

The group, which calls itself "Supporters of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in Jerusalem," said in an online statement that the rockets it fired were aimed at a base occupied by Hamas's armed wing, Izzadin Kassam

The attack comes amid mounting tensions between Hamas and Islamic State supporters in the Gaza Strip. Hamas arrested dozens of Salafi-jihadists who are affiliated with Islamic State, sources in the Gaza Strip said on Thursday. They said the arrests came following a series of bombings, which were reportedly carried out by the Salafi-jihadists in recent weeks. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/ISIS-linked-group-claims-responsibility-for-mortar-attack-on-Hamas-base-in-Gaza-402504" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
