On Sunday evening, the al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for firing four mortars at Israeli soldiers who invaded al-Qarara.

A statement made by the Brigades claimed its fighters spotted an Israeli military force accompanied by armored vehicles invading an area east of al-Qarara and exchanged fire with them; no injuries were reported.
