A Salafi terrorist group associated with Islamic State claimed responsibility for the volley of rockets fired at southern Israel on Friday night.

“We take responsibility for the rocket bombardment on the Sderot settlement at 11:07 p.m. Friday night. Praised God, we allowed for Jewish blood [to flow] and we turned their night to day. We activated alarms in all of southern occupied Palestine,” read a statement allegedly issued by group Ajnad Bayt al-Maqdis.

Five rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel on Friday night, with two of the projectiles landing in Israeli territory. Three other rockets landed near the security fence inside the coastal Palestinian enclave.
