Islamic Jihad Secretary-General Ziad al-Najala said Friday that Israel should not expect a truce from the Palestinian resistance.
“This is the day of victory, and the enemy must not wait for a truce. Today is a test of Palestinian resistance in the face of this aggression,” al-Najala said, according to Al Mayadeen.
For its part, the Lebanese Shiite militia party Hezbollah has offered its condolences to Islamic Jihad on the death of the organization’s number two and several commanders in the Gaza Strip, Tayseer al Jabari.
Hezbollah also praised “the solidarity of all factions of the Palestinian resistance,” while emphasizing unity to defeat the enemy and showing its “permanent and firm support for the oppressed Palestinian people and their courageous resistance to liberate their land and their prisoners and achieve their legitimate goals,” in a statement collected by the Maan agency.
In addition, Hezbollah has indicated that Palestine is making “the most precious sacrifices” that will allow it to “continue until it achieves victory”, in the face of the “heinous and treacherous Israeli crime”.
Following the death of the commander of Islamic Jihad and following several bombings by the Israeli Forces of the Gaza Strip, the terrorist organization has launched in retaliation an undefined number of missiles, which have been intercepted by the Israeli ‘Iron Dome’ system and which have raised tension in the area.
According to the latest report by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, ten people, including a 5-year-old boy, were killed by Israeli missiles and 65 people were injured.
