Israel warns Gaza against revenge attack

Israel issues strong warning against Hamas and Islamic Jihad

Greenblatt Islamic Jihad threats 'significantly harm the people of Gaza'

Tuesday the Dan region was named as the location of at least one of the batteries.

The U.N. also voiced its concern about the threat of an imminent attack by the Islamic Jihad and the potential repercussions, in particular on an ongoing reconciliation process between the leading Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas to bring Gaza back under the control of the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority.

The system, created to intercept short-range rockets, has defended against hundreds of rockets fired by Palestinian militants from Gaza during Israel's military campaign there in 2014.

Earlier on Monday, the IDF said that West Bank-based PIJ leader Tariq Qa'adan had been arrested, prompting outrage from the group, which said it was "part of the occupation's latest escalation against Islamic Jihad and our people", according to Palestine Today, a news site affiliated with the group.

Israel has said it is holding the bodies of five fighters retrieved from the tunnel, and implied it could use them as bargaining chips to retrieve the remains of two soldiers believed to be held by Hamas.


According to the army, the tunnel had been under surveillance the entire time that it was inside Israeli territory and did not pose a threat to civilians.

In his YouTube message, Mordechai referred to those reconciliation efforts, saying Islamic Jihad was "playing with fire" and potentially threatening the talks as well as the safety of Gaza Strip residents.

Also on Sunday, Khaled al-Batash, a senior Islamic Jihad official in Gaza, said the organization will "have no other choice to punish Israel for killing its members", Ynet said.

Israel has been targeting the Islamic Jihad movement following the Israeli-led attack on the Gaza Strip's cross-border tunnel, fearing revenge by the movement. Ten PIJ operatives, including two senior commanders, were killed during Israel's operation to destroy the tunnel. "We will take a very strong hand against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any theater". "In any case, we see Hamas as responsible for every attack that emanates from, or is planned against us in, the Gaza Strip", he said.
