Islamic Jihad To Respond To Israel’s Recent Attacks: Spokesman

The Palestinian resistance movement of the Islamic Jihad says that Israel’s recent attacks against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip will be reciprocated with the movement’s unexpected response.

Abu Ahmed, the spokesman for the Quds Brigades (the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad), said on Tuesday that the movement would take the recent threats of the Tel Aviv regime seriously.

Abu Ahmed stated that the recent attacks came after the Israeli regime’s defeat at the hands of the resistance movement and the challenges it faced in the region.

Earlier in the day, Israeli warplanes bombed a motorbike near the Shati refugee camp in northwestern Gaza City, killing one Palestinian and injured another.

Thousands of Palestinians marched through the streets of Gaza City, carrying the body of Haitham al-Meshal, 29.

On April 28, Israeli warplanes launched airstrikes on areas in the southern town of Khan Younis and near the town of Rafah in southern Gaza.

In early April, Tel Aviv also conducted airstrikes on Gaza for the first time since a truce ended an eight-day Israeli war on the Palestinian territory in November 2012.

Some 177 Palestinians were killed and about 1,200 others injured in the Israeli war from November 14 to 21.
