Israel issues strong warning against Hamas and Islamic Jihad
According to Palestinian media, Hamas encouraged Islamic Jihad to abstain from retaliating both in order to prevent further escalation with Israel and to prevent the reconciliation talks it has been conducting with the Palestinian Authority from falling apart. He was due to undergo two surgeries as a result of a health condition, the family noted.
Israel has been targeting the Islamic Jihad movement following the Israeli-led attack on the Gaza Strip's cross-border tunnel, fearing revenge by the movement.
According to Amos Yadlin, head of the Institute for National Security Studies think tank, "the messages and warnings that Israel has been sending to Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) over the last couple of days are not incidental, but actually indicate concrete intel according to which PIJ plans to respond to the destruction of his terror tunnel into Israel", Yadlin wrote on Twitter.
Other Iron Dome batteries were also reportedly moved to central Israel from the south of the country, where they normally protect against sporadic short-range rocket attacks.
Israel arrested a leader of Palestinian group Islamic Jihad in the occupied West Bank on Monday, its military said as tension between the two sides continue to rise.
The system, created to intercept short-range rockets, has defended against hundreds of rockets fired by Palestinian militants from Gaza during Israel's military campaign there in 2014.
Referring to the Israeli operation on October 30, he said that Israel "destroyed a terror tunnel in Israeli sovereign territory".
PIJ responded to the IDF's announcement that it was keeping the bodies of five terrorists found in the tunnel by saying that Israel "will not be able to bargain over our fighters". "It has many tunnels and many options", senior PIJ member Ahmad al-Mudalal warned.
"The Islamic Jihad will have a hard time holding back", said the unnamed senior official. "In any case, we see Hamas as responsible for every attack that emanates from, or is planned against us in, the Gaza Strip", he said.
