Israel issues strong warning against Hamas and Islamic Jihad

The arrest came a day after Islamic Jihad called Israeli threats against its leadership "a declaration of war, which we will confront".

Israel's October 30 blowing up of the tunnel resulted in the deaths of 12 Palestinian fighters from Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Israel has been targeting the Islamic Jihad movement following the Israeli-led attack on the Gaza Strip's cross-border tunnel, fearing revenge by the movement.

The U.N. also voiced its concern about the threat of an imminent attack by the Islamic Jihad and the potential repercussions, in particular on an ongoing reconciliation process between the leading Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas to bring Gaza back under the control of the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority. The freedom tunnel is not the only tunnel owned by the Islamic Jihad.

"It should be clear", Mordechai added, "that for every Islamic Jihad response, Israel will respond with force and determination, not only to [Islamic] Jihad but also to Hamas".

The batteries are one of several measures taken by the army to raise its alert level and response capabilities amid heightened tensions with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad organization since the army demolished the terrorist group's border-crossing attack tunnel last month.

Jason Greenblatt, US President Donald Trump's special representative for global negotiations, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that "extremist statements & provocation vs. Israel by Islamic Jihad significantly harm the people of Gaza & are very risky".

The Iron Dome system, which is created to shoot down short-range rockets and, in some cases, mortars, was deployed to counter the threats made by Islamic Jihad, which has vowed to avenge its members killed in the tunnel blast and its aftermath.

In what amounted to an admission that the city of Tel Aviv was vulnerable to attack by Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the IDF revealed on Tuesday that it has deployed an Iron Dome missile defense battery in the Dan region - otherwise known as Tel Aviv and the surrounding suburbs.
