Palestine’s Islamic Jihad Movement issued late Sunday a statement to welcome the Egyptian mediation aimed at reaching a ceasefire in Gaza.
In this context, the statement mentioned that the Movement will be committed to the ceasefire which is set to take into effect at 23:30.
Islamic Jihad added that it asserts its right to respond to any Zionist aggression on Gaza despite the ceasefire.
The statement greeted the martyrs, fighters, the prisoners and Gaza locals, expressing pride of the wounded.
On Friday, August 5, the Zionist enemy assassinated the Islamic Jihad senior military commander, Tayseer Jabari, and a number of his brethren in Gaza. The Israeli warplanes also started raiding the residential areas in the blockaded Strip, claiming around 43 martyrs and 311 injuries.
In response, the Islamic Jihad Resistance Movements in cooperation with other resistance factions, fired around 1000 missiles at the occupied territories in Gaza vicinity as well as the central cities, including Al-Quds and Tel Aviv.
