Israel issues strong warning against Hamas and Islamic Jihad

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

The military confirmed on Monday the anti-missile systems were installed in "central Israel", but would not specify their location. "They are playing with fire at the expense of all of Gaza's residents" said Major General Yoav Mordechai, head of the Israeli military authority in the occupied Palestinian territories in an Arabic message on Saturday night.

The arrest came a day after Islamic Jihad called Israeli threats against its leadership "a declaration of war, which we will confront".

The Iron Dome system, which is created to shoot down short-range rockets and, in some cases, mortars, was deployed to counter the threats made by Islamic Jihad, which has vowed to avenge its members killed in the tunnel blast and its aftermath.

The bodies of five terrorists who were working on the tunnel inside Israeli territory were recovered by the IDF, the army said.

Almost two weeks after the Israeli army blew up a tunnel that ran between the southern Gaza Strip and Israel, killing 12 Palestinian fighters from the Islamic Jihad and Hamas movements, Israel has continued to exchange threats with the groups, saying that it will "respond with force" to any retaliation from Gaza.

Jason Greenblatt, US President Donald Trump's special representative for worldwide negotiations, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that "extremist statements & provocation vs. Israel by Islamic Jihad significantly harm the people of Gaza & are very unsafe". Ten PIJ operatives, including two senior commanders, were killed during Israel's operation to destroy the tunnel. "When they kill men of the resistance, and especially from Islamic Jihad, we have no other choice but to punish the occupier, and continue to strengthen the buildup of forces from a conflict", al-Batash reportedly said.

Senior defense officials have reason to believe that Islamic Jihad is planning a revenge attack.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu added his own warning addressed to those contemplating an attack.

"I say this to every entity, rogue faction, organization - everyone".
