Israel warns Gaza militants against carrying out attacks

The IDF arrested Islamic Jihad leader Tariq Qa'adan Monday morning, and when asked if Qa'adan was involved in militant activities, a security source said "Islamic Jihad is a terrorist organization and any action within the framework of the organization is forbidden".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is warning Gaza militants against attacking Israel after the Islamic Jihad group vowed revenge for the demolition of one of its attack tunnels.

Tension has increased between Israel and PIJ after the IDF destroyed a tunnel in Israeli territory which had been dug by the PIJ.

Senior Islamic Jihad leader Khaled al-Batsh said Sunday that the deaths of its fighters "would not go unpunished".

"We are aware of the plot that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group plans against Israel".

Islamic Jihad responded by saying that "the Zionist enemy's threats to harm the organization's leadership are a declaration of war".

More, importantly it shows that the English Premier League have plenty of good players waiting in the ranks for their chance. Joe Hart will start reclaim the goalkeeper's jersey at the expense of Jordan Pickford while Eric Dier continues as captain.

"We reaffirm our right to respond to any aggression, including our right to respond to the crime of aggression on the resistance tunnel", the terror group's statement said. He has previously served time in Israeli prisons for terror offenses.

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. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.

"It is playing with fire on the backs of residents of the Gaza Strip, and at the expense of the internal Palestinian reconciliation and the entire region", it added.

"There are those who are still manipulating the idea of launching new attacks on Israel". "We will take a very firm stance against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any area".

"Our account with them will not be closed except with a response", he said.
