Nov 13 2017 by Desiree Burns
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday that the country would respond harshly to any attack against it no matter where it comes from.
"There are those who still amuse themselves these days by trying to renew attacks against Israel", Netanyahu told Israel's weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.
"I say this to every entity, rogue faction, organization - every one". "In any event, we see Hamas responsible to any attack launched or organized from the Gaza Strip against us".
"Threats to target the movement's leadership is a declaration of war, which we will confront", Islamic Jihad said Sunday, according to Palestine Today. "We reaffirm our right to respond to any aggression, including our right to respond to the crime of aggression on the resistance tunnel".
The Arabic video posted by Mordechai said: "We're aware of the plot that Palestinian Islamic Jihad is concocting against Israel". The same for Jihad leaders in Damascus (mentioning their names).
Salvation Army kicks of its holiday season on Monday
Zanesville, Ohio- Yesterday, members of The Salvation Army gathered together to host their annual Red Kettle holiday fundraiser. The stations will be set up at more than 35 businesses throughout the Green Bay area this year.
The moves came after the Islamic Jihad vowed to avenge the death of at least 12 of its fighters in a tunnel that Israel blew up on October 30.
The IDF estimates that the Islamic Jihad is planning an attack on the Jewish State following the IDF's demolition of a terror tunnel some two weeks ago.
Islamic Jihad, on their part, has sent instructions to their followers to commit a major terrorist attack against Israel as soon as possible.
In remarks to Asharq Al-Awsat, Political Analyst Mustafa Ibrahim said that Israel was seeking to distort the Palestinian reconciliation and accuse Hamas and the Islamic Jihad of working for Iranian interests.
