GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Islamic Jihad's military wing is ready to respond to Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people, a spokesman said Sunday.

"Our group and the military wing of Hamas, the al-Qassam Brigades, are completely ready to respond to Israeli violations depending on the situation on the ground. We might have never been as ready as at this time," al-Quds Brigades spokesman Abu Ahmad told Ma'an.

After Israel bombed southern Gaza last Sunday, Islamic Jihad's military wing the al-Quds Brigades joined forces with Hamas' armed wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, to fire rockets at Israeli military sites.

Al-Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Ubeida said the joint operation demonstrated the "high level of coordination" between the factions.

Israeli airstrikes over the past 24 hours have killed five people in Gaza.
