Israel warns Gaza militants against carrying out attacks

The IDF arrested a Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist in the West Bank on Sunday night after the continued threats by the terror group in response to the strike on the terror tunnel in October.

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.

A handful of MPs have vowed to ignore the public's will and vote against the bill anyway, but they are few and far between. After months of fierce debate on both sides, supporters of marriage equality are expected to emerge victorious.


On Saturday, Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, who runs the Defense Ministry's chief liaison office with the Palestinians, publicly warned Islamic Jihad in a video posted to YouTube.

Two weeks after the tunnel was destroyed, the IDF understands that Islamic Jihad intends to respond, and it is likely that it will prefer to carry out an attack on the border - and perhaps even fire at sovereign Israel.

The Iron Dome system, which is created to shoot down short-range rockets and, in some cases, mortars was deployed to counter the threats made by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, which has vowed to avenge its members killed in the tunnel blast and its aftermath. Twelve Hamas and PIJ fighters, including senior military commanders, were killed in the subsequent explosions in the tunnel.

Enloe Medical Centre spokeswoman Nicole Johansson said the hospital was treating four people this morning, including three minors. Police said they were aware of a "domestic violence incident" that had taken place at some point involving the alleged shooter .


Islamic Jihad responded by saying that "the Zionist enemy's threats to harm the organization's leadership are a declaration of war".

The U.N. also voiced its concern about the threat of an imminent attack by the Islamic Jihad and the potential repercussions, in particular on an ongoing reconciliation process between the leading Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas to bring Gaza back under the control of the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority.

"The [Palestinian] Islamic Jihad will have a hard time holding back", said the unnamed senior official.

The Broncos do not seem to out-coach anyone, or at least they haven't since they played the Dallas Cowboys back in week two. To give him the benefit of the doubt on this one, maybe he was just being honest about his feelings after being released.
