Islamic Jihad 'will respond' to Israeli ceasefire violations

Jan. 18, 2013 5:32 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 20, 2013 4:25 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Islamic Jihad's military wing warned Friday that it would respond if Israel continued to violate a ceasefire deal agreed in November.

In remarks published on Islamic Jihad-affiliated media, Al-Quds Brigades spokesman Abu Ahmad said the group never expected Israel to adhere to the agreement, signed on Nov. 21 to end an eight-day war that left 170 Palestinians and six Israelis dead.

"We are observing what is happening on the ground, however we want to give the Egyptians an opportunity to maintain what has been agreed on," Abu Ahmad.

"We have our own calculations and evaluations, and eventually we will deal with these violations if they continue," he added.

Israel agreed to refrain from targeting individuals in border areas of the Gaza Strip, but Israeli forces have shot dead at least three Palestinians and frequently breached the border since the ceasefire was signed.
