Islamic Jihad chief 'reconsiders Gaza visit after Israeli threat'

Dec. 6, 2012 8:09 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 8, 2012 7:37 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israel threatened to assassinate the leader of Islamic Jihad if he enters the Gaza Strip, causing the party to reconsider his upcoming visit, sources said Thursday.

Egyptian authorities told Islamic Jihad that Israel rejected the visit and would target leader Ramadan Shalah and his deputy Ziad Nakhla if they went into Gaza, sources close to the discussions told Ma'an.

Islamic Jihad leaders are considering whether to cancel the visit, set to take place on Friday ahead of Hamas' 25th anniversary celebrations which start the following day.

Jihad's leadership are in talks with the Egyptian authorities over the matter.
