Palestine’s Islamic Jihad says that the fragile truce with Israel in Gaza is in its final stages and is likely to collapse.
Islamic Jihad’s military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, issued a statement saying it will respond to Israel’s assassination of its members. The statement was made in response to the killing of three Islamic Jihad activists in an Israeli assassination drone attack on Tuesday near Rafah in southern Gaza. Earlier this month, another Israeli airstrike in the north of the besieged enclave left two Palestinians dead and two injured. The Egyptian-brokered truce ended Israel’s Eight-Day War on Gaza in November 2012.
