Senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad Official Says All of Israel Now in Range of Rockets
Just one year after Israel’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in Gaza, a senior commander for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group claimed that all of Israel was now within range of their rockets, Israel’s Channel 2 reported on Tuesday.
The senior official, who went by the nom de guerre Abu Mujahid, claimed that his organization had learned from last summer’s war and other armed conflicts with Israel.
“All of Israel’s cities are currently within the range of our rockets,” he said, adding that during the past year Palestinian Islamic Jihad had improved its arsenal.
“We have many surprises [for Israel] that we will keep secret,” he said, also claiming that it was the Gazans who had started the war last summer in response to Israeli “provocation.”
