In a statement released on the 6th anniversary of Israel’s military operation against the Gaza Strip, the Islamic Jihad said the Palestinian nation is united, would increase its power continuously, and will diversify the instruments and methods to fight against the Zionist enemy.
The movement also vowed that the Palestinian resistance will never allow the enemy to continue acts of aggression against people of Palestine or occupy a tiny part of the Palestinian territory.
The Palestinian resistance will press on with plans to strengthen its power to defend the Palestinian nation, territories and sanctities, the statement added, warning the Zionist regime not to take any criminal action against Palestinians, because “the resistance is prepared for decisive response to any crime.”
The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli blockade since June 2007. The blockade has caused a decline in the standard of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.
Israel carries out regular attacks on Palestinians in Gaza under the pretext of hitting Hamas targets. It has also launched several wars on the enclave, the last of which began in early July 2014 and ended in late August the same year. The Israeli military aggression killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians and injured over 11,100 others.
