Islamic Jihad warns Gaza ceasefire could come to end

Nov. 21, 2013 12:13 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 22, 2013 9:48 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Islamic Jihad's military wing, the Al-Quds Brigades, on Thursday warned that the ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian factions in Gaza could come to an end in light of ongoing Israeli violations.

Abu Ahmad, a spokesman for the group, said in a statement that Israeli incursions into Gaza and airstrikes against civilian and military sites could mark the beginning of the end of the ceasefire agreement.

"Palestinian resistance has the right to confront Israeli incursions by all possible means," the statement added.

An Egyptian mediated ceasefire agreement was reached last November between Palestinian factions and Israel to end over a week of fighting which left over 170 Palestinians dead and thousands injured.

Since the agreement, Israel has opened fire and injured dozens of Gazans in border areas, carried out airstrikes and killed at least 20 Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

There have also been dozens of incursions into the Gaza Strip by Israeli military forces.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe blockade imposed by the State of Israel since 2006.
