Overnight, the Israeli military reported the firing of a projectile from Gaza into the western Negev, with no injuries reported.

The Al-Aqsa Brigades, a Palestinian armed group, claimed the launch of the projectile.

In a statement the brigades said they worked in conjunction with the Imad Mughniyeh Brigades, another armed group, to fire two homemade projectiles eastward from the Strip, and a third towards the Kissufim military base.

The statement said the fire was a "response to the Israeli crimes against the Freedom Flotilla".
