Palestinian “Islamic Jihad” continues to negotiate with Egyptian mediators over the state of calm in Gaza following the latest round of hostilities with Israel.
According to Arutz Sheva, the terrorist group is concerned that Israel is “trying to violate certain provisions” that , according to Islamic Jihad, are part of the ceasefire agreement reached earlier.
As part of the ceasefire agreement, Egypt announced that it would seek the release of prisoner Khalil Awadeh, who has been on a hunger strike for more than 150 days , as well as the release of Basem al-Saadi, one of the leaders of the Islamic Jihad. It was his arrest that led to threats from Islamic Jihad. against Israel, in response to which the IDF launched Operation Dawn in Gaza.
Representatives of the “Islamic Jihad”
The group told the Al-Akhbar newspaper that Israel had held intensive talks with senior officials in Egypt over the issue in recent days.
. In “Islamic Jihad” believe that the extension of Al-Saadin's arrest for six days is an attempt on the part of Israel to evade its obligations.
“Islamic Jihad” threatens “military response” if the two prisoners are not released soon and if Awade dies as a result of his hunger strike.
