Islamic Jihad: 1,400 Gaza ceasefire violations since 2012

Dec. 25, 2013 11:55 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2013 10:40 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel has violated a November ceasefire with Gaza over 1,400 times since December 2012, a spokesman for the military wing of Islamic Jihad said Wednesday.

Al-Quds Brigades spokesman Abu Ahmad told Ma’an that the killing of a child on Tuesday marked the biggest violation of a truce since Egypt brokered an agreement to end a week-long assault on Gaza last year.

Abu Ahmad said that the militant group did not want to end the ceasefire because "it benefits our people" under present regional circumstances "but we will not keep it forever."

He added that the ceasefire must be reciprocal and mutual but he accused Israel of wanting to end it.

"Every drop of blood that have falls must be countered, but the nature of the field determines how," he added.

The spokesman's remarks came a day after Israel launched airstrikes across the Gaza Strip that killed a 3-year-old Palestinian child and injured her mother and brother.

Israel's army said it was responding to a Palestinian attack that killed an Israeli worker at the border in the northern Gaza Strip earlier in the afternoon.
