Islamic Jihad: Israeli aggression on Gaza dangerous escalation
The Islamic Jihad Movement condemned on Thursday an Israeli onslaught on the blockaded Gaza Strip, saying it rather aims to divert public attention from the horrendous crime committed by Israeli terrorists in Qasra, south of Nablus, earlier in the day.
Islamic Jihad spokesman Daoud Shehab said the Israeli strike comes to “mix up the cards.”
He added that the Palestinian resistance has the right to respond to such a “dangerous escalation” by the Israeli occupation.
48-year-old Mahmoud Oudeh was shot and killed by extremist Israeli settlers on Thursday in Nablus’s southern town of Qasra at around noontime after Israeli terrorists targeted Palestinian farmers with randomly-discharged gunfire.
A few hours later, three Palestinians were left injured after the Israeli occupation army struck Palestinian resistance sites in the blockaded Gaza Strip.
