Netanyahu to Palestinian Terror Groups: Don't Try Us, We Will Respond Harshly
Israel deployed anti-rocket systems and raised its security alert on Monday, fearing a retaliatory attack from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group, in response to the deadly bombing of Palestinian tunnels in Gaza last month.
Referring to the Israeli operation on October 30, he said that Israel "destroyed a terror tunnel in Israeli sovereign territory", which resulted in the death of 12 Palestinian militants from Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
The demolition killed 14 fighters from al-Quds Brigades, which is the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, and the Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas resistance movement.
On Saturday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major Gen. Yoav (Poli) Mordechai publicly warned Islamic Jihad that it was "playing with fire" by threatening Israel.
The Israeli army said on Monday that it arrested overnight what it called the "senior operative" in Arraba near the city of Jenin in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
"We advise Islamic Jihad's leadership in Damascus to exercise caution and keep things under control". But Palestinians say tunnels are used to ease the crippling siege on Gaza imposed by Israel and Egypt.
Two Israeli civilians, said to be mentally unstable, are also believed to have entered Gaza and to be held by Hamas. Ten members of the group died in the tunnel.
The PIJ threat was issued after Israel's Maj.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at Israel's weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, "We will take a very firm stance against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any area", and that Hamas would be held responsible for any attack launched from Gaza.
