GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The Palestinian Hamas movement, which runs the Gaza Strip, arrested on Nov. 6 two people allegedly affiliated with a Salafist group over their alleged involvement in firing four empty rockets toward Israel on Nov. 3, an unidentified Hamas security source revealed to Agence France-Presse on Nov. 6.

“The Palestinian factions have nothing to do with these rockets, which are aimed at giving the occupation an excuse for continuing the aggression,” the source said.
