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.

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.
