Hamas denies responsibility for rockets fired into Israel

GAZA (Reuters) – The Gaza Strip’s dominant Hamas Islamists denied responsibility on Thursday for rockets fired into Israel, saying the attack took place as it held truce talks with Egyptian mediators.

The Hamas armed wing said in a statement it was “not responsible for the firing of the rockets tonight toward the enemy. They were fired as a meeting was underway between the leadership of the Hamas movement and the Egyptian security delegation over the understandings regarding the Gaza Strip.”
