IDF deploys Iron Dome for fear of Islamic Jihad retaliation

If it holds, the deal will allow the Fatah-led Palestinian government in Ramallah to assume political and administrative responsibility for the Gaza Strip.

"Let it be clear: Any attack by Islamic Jihad will be met with a harsh and determined Israeli response".

"We are aware of the plot that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group is planning against Israel", said Mordechai, whose defence ministry unit is known as COGAT.

"We advise Islamic Jihad's leadership in Damascus to exercise caution and keep things under control".

A member of Palestinian security forces loyal to Hamas gestures while searching for missing or dead militants after Israel blew up a cross-border tunnel, in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip November 3, 2017.

Israel and the Egyptian military have launched a campaign to destroy the tunnels, preventing the people in Gaza from bringing most of their basic goods like construction materials, food, and fuel into the coastal enclave.

The PIJ threat was issued after Israel's Maj. Two fighters belonging to the Palestinian resistance group Hamas were also killed.

Israel has said it is holding the bodies of five militants retrieved from the tunnel and implied it would try to use them as bargaining chips to retrieve the remains of two Israeli soldiers believed held by Hamas.

Amid the ongoing implementation of a reconciliation agreement between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Hamas would be held responsible for any attack carried from Gaza.
