The Hamas-affiliated Al-Ayyash Battalion on Tuesday claimed to have fired another rocket from the Jenin area towards the Jewish community of Shaked in northern Samaria.

The group published video purporting to show the rocket before launch with a note in Arabic attached to it.

The alleged rocket launch follows others in recent months in Judea and Samaria, including one on July 27 when Palestinian terrorists fired a rocket from the Jenin area towards the Israeli moshav of Ram-On in the Gilboa region.

Hamas’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades earlier claimed that it fired a rocket in response “to the aggression of the occupation and settlers on Al-Aqsa.”

The Al-Ayyash Battalion on July 10 said that it fired two rockets from the Jenin area towards Shaked. The Israel Defense Forces subsequently located two rocket launchers and two makeshift projectiles near the village.
