Islamic Jihad Leader Detained By IDF In West Bank

The IDF arrested an Islamic Jihad leader in the West Bank on November 13 morning, an IDF spokesperson said in a statement.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the person in question is Tariq Qa’adan, arrested for his “activities” in Islamic Jihad.

“This unjust arrest of the leader Qa’adan is a part of the occupation’s latest escalation against Islamic Jihad and our people,” Islamic Jihad said in statement, according to Palestine Today.

This arrest follows the statement by Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major Gen. Yoav (Poli) Mordechai issued on November 11, in which he warned Islamic Jihad against escalating the situation.

“We are aware of the plot being waged by Palestinian Islamic Jihad against Israel. They are playing with fire with the residents of the Gaza Strip and at the expense of Palestinian reconciliation and the entire region,” said Mordechai.

The Islamic Jihad responded to the threats to their leadership a “declaration of war”.

On October 30th, the IDF blew up a tunnel via a series of airstrikes near the border of the Gaza Strip, an act the Palestinian Islamic Jihad claimed killed 12 members of the group.

    Another Israeli disinformation to harass Palestinians.

    • Yeah Right, always the Jews, very convenient. Tell ur pals the Palestinians to lay down their arms and be good citizens, is that too much to ask people who reportedly have lost all wars they caused?

      • The only one who took arms against innocent people and caused all these wars were Israelis since they ethnically cleansed Palestinians (who were living peacefully in their OWN fuckin country) and took over their homes.

      • Rob

        Palestinians cannot win by stones, knives and ka-47. Palestinians need proper weapons to kick out all global Israeli terrorists from their land.

      • Garga

        Yes, I personally told them times an again: “Why do you resist so much? So Israelis occupied your land, destroyed your homes, killed your women and children, sprayed your remaining homes with sewer, burned your orchards, puts you in a large open-air prison, so what? Be a good citizen and bend so Israelis do whatever they want to you. Don’t resist it, try to enjoy…

        But they don’t listen. They’re being utterly unreasonable over such insignificant matters. Right?

  • What about IDF’s support for Al Nusra in Syria?

  • Serious Dude

    There is no such thing as “Palestinian”! Palestinian means Israeli!

    • How’s the weather at Tel Aviv?

      • Serious Dude

        I don’t know but I don’t see virgins flying in Gaza.

    • Garga

      Sure.
      Remains the tiny problem of the name of this piece of land: Always been Palestine. It’s inhabitant? Palestinians. This is the historic part.
      Notice these historic maps from 5th century AD to 1947

      Like it or not, Palestine IS a country, recognized by many. This is political part.
      I posted this for you a couple of times before, but seems you easily forget what you don’t like.

      • Serious Dude

        Ancient Palestinians were Greek. Modern “Palestinians” live in a false identity, that’s why many Druzes and Bedouins didn’t accept this identity and fought for Israel!

        • Garga

          Take good and deep look at the above map and think about your wishful thinking.

          Here’s another map, the countries who recognize only Palestine, only Israel and both:

          I’m sure in a short time you’ll repeat this nonsense again. Perhaps I’ll post the same reply then!

          3, 2, 1: cue argument for the sake of arguing

          • Serious Dude

            The same thing that happens about “Macedonia”.

          • Serious Dude

            The countries that don’t recognize Israel are the Islamic and the communist ones!

          • Rob

            America and few European countries recognize Israel and ISIS states because Israel and ISIS have put their feet on their tails.

            But in near future no one will recognize these disgusting global terrorist Israel state and ISIS state.

          • Serious Dude

            You are on a hallucination.

          • Rob

            Israeli terrorist always spreading so much disinformations that whole world communities make confuse.

    • Rob

      Palestine is an Arab Muslim land and Israel is a global terrorist state. For me there is no difference between ISIS state and Israeli state, both are disgusting fake terrorist states and both needs to be vanished for ever.

      • Serious Dude

        Palestine has never been 100% Arab. ISIS supports Palestinian terrorists.

        • Rob

          OK Israel support ISIS and then ISIS support Palestine. No sense. No logic.

          • Serious Dude

            Israel is against ISIS.

          • Rob

            Israel support Mujahideen, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, SDF, YPG, FSA and so on. I am not saying but MSM.

        • Rob

          Arab mean native residents of Palestine and speak Arabic language. Israel are injected from whole world to Palestine and they are not Arab native people. Israel are refugees in Palestine and they have no right in Palestine. Israeli refugees total number is not more than 5% in whole land of Palestine including Israel. That is why Israel is a fake state like ISIS.

          • Serious Dude

            Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Aramaics, Jews, Persians have all passed from Palestine but Arabs want everything on their own.

          • Rob

            Have you seen any other race around Palestine except arab? No because that is land of Arab. I am not saying but thousands years history says. It is like somebody fixe a tiny piece of carpet in the short or a donkey in the flock of thousands of sheeps.
