GAZA, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Palestinian militants said they fired several al-Qassam rockets at Israel and Jewish settlements in Gaza Tuesday, but no casualties were reported.

Hamas' military wing, al-Qassam Brigades, said three rockets were fired at the Israeli city of Sederot early Tuesday and others were aimed at Jewish settlements in north Gaza.

Other militant groups, including Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades, Fatah's al-Aqsa Brigades and the Brigades of Abou Ali Mustafa, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, also said they fired Nasser-3 rockets at the settlements of Nitzarim and Ghosh Katif.
