Al-Quds Brigades threatens 'battle of ghosts' with Israel

Nov. 13, 2013 9:13 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2013 7:56 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A spokesman for a Palestinian militant group Wednesday warned Israel of an upcoming "battle of ghosts."

Following a military parade in Gaza conducted by al-Quds Brigades - the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad movement - a spokesman for the group condemned peace negotiations as an impossible method for liberating Palestine and its people.

The only appropriate place to meet with Israel is on the battlefield, the spokesman said.

"Nightmares will become a reality in Gaza and inside (Israel's) cities," he said. "The next battle will be a ghost battle."

"The balance of power leans towards the enemy because of Western support and Arab collusion," he said. "That will not hold us back - our goal will remain to free Palestine, all of Palestine."

Additionally, the spokesman demanded that the Palestinian Authority stop targeting Islamic Jihad members in the West Bank.

Some 2,000 armed men participated in the parade.

The al-Quds Brigades claims to have fired dozens of rockets into Israel during last November's Operation Pillar of Defense, an Israeli military offensive against the Strip which left 170 Palestinians and six Israelis dead.
