The Islamic Jihad vowed to respond with counter-attack after Israel demolished the tunnel in October, killing 12 militants.

"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.

These new threats come as calm prevails in the Gaza Strip due to the role assumed by Egypt in preventing the deterioration of the situation for the sake of the success of the Palestinian reconciliation.

"I mean all parties, whether factions or organizations, and we will hold (Hamas) responsible for any attack launched against us from the Gaza Strip", he added.

Later Monday, Israeli media said the army had raised its level of alert adjacent to the border with Gaza as a precaution against possible Islamic Jihad retaliation for the tunnel blast.

The Israeli army said on Monday that it arrested overnight what it called the "senior operative" in Arraba near the city of Jenin in the northern part of the occupied West Bank. Islamic Jihad also stressed that "Israel's threats don't scare us".

The group condemned the arrest, calling it the "latest escalation" by occupation forces against its members and the Palestinian people.

Israel said that the tunnel, which ran from the besieged Palestinian enclave into Israeli territory, was a "terror tunnel" aimed to attack Israelis.

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to "take a very firm stance against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any area".

The remarks echoed an earlier warning issued by a high-ranking Israeli military commander.
