Israel warns Gaza militants against carrying out attacks

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have deployed Iron Dome missile defense systems in the central part of the country amid rising tensions with militants operating in the Gaza Strip, a spokesperson for the IDF told Sputnik Monday.

We are aware of ongoing efforts by the Palestine Islamic Jihad against Israel. That scenario could develop at any moment, and hence the deployment of the Iron Dome units, which will be used to deflect the Gaza missiles fired at Israeli population centers.

In late October, Israeli fighter jets destroyed a lifeline tunnel in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip, killing 10 members of the Gaza-based Islamic Jihad resistance movement and two other fighters with the fellow Hamas resistance group.

It has been released for publication today (Tuesday) that one of the Iron Dome batteries that were deployed across central Israel has been stationed in Gush Dan, also known as the Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.

There has not yet been an official statement from the Israeli army on the issue.

President Donald Trump's Special Representative for International Negotiations lashed out against the Islamic Jihad terror group for the threats they have recently made against Israel.

Daoud Shehab, an Islamic Jihad spokesman, called the comments by Netanyahu and Mordechai "a declaration of war".

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.

He said that there were those "who still amuse themselves these days by trying to renew attacks against Israel" and warned that such attacks would be dealt with harshly.

They, however, say the tunnels are needed to transfer essential supplies, including food and fuel, into the Palestinian territory, which has been under a crippling Israeli siege for over a decade.

And that has caused some concern for Israel, especially with a report by Al-Hayat stating PIJ have been watching the movements of IDF troops and civilians on the Gaza border using binoculars and other surveillance equipment. The group realizes that by taking action against Israel it was likely to elicit an Israeli response - which would, among other things, nearly certainly destroy the nascent reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah. "It is playing with fire at the expense of the citizens of Gaza, at the expense of Palestinian reconciliation and at the expense of the entire region". The IDF wants to prepare a quick response in the event that the Islamic Jihad decides to act and also to enable the work on the barrier to continue.
