The Palestinian armed group Islamic Jihad said that it had developed missiles capable of recahing Jerusalem al-Quds, Tel Aviv, Netanya and other targets deep inside Israeli-controlled territory, according to comments shown in a documentary released by Iran’s Arabic-language al-Alam news channel.
In the documentary, a senior member of the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, al-Quds Brigades, claimed that Islamic Jihad is now in possession of more precise missiles. The documentary also shows drills of al-Quds Brigades, in which the unit stimulated a storm of Israeli military facility.
“The Zionist enemy has no place on the land of Palestine, it must either retreat from this blessed land, or it will receive painful blows one by one,” Abu Hamza said.
A new round of the saber-rattling between Palestinian armed groups and Israel comes amid the continued tensions on the contact line between the Gaza Strip and the Israeli-controlled area. The situation is further complicated by the ongoing election campaign in Israel. Many hawkish Israeli politicians use the situation to promote a more agressive approach towards the Gaza conflict.
