Israel Arrests Palestinian Islamic Jihad Commander, Warns Terror Group against Escalation

Israel arrested a leader of Palestinian group Islamic Jihad in the occupied West Bank on Monday, its military said as tension between the two sides continue to rise.

"Threats to target the movement's leadership is a declaration of war, which we will confront", Islamic Jihad said Sunday, according to Palestine Today.

Islamic Jihad, on their part, has sent instructions to their followers to commit a major terrorist attack against Israel as soon as possible.

The United States considers Islamic Jihad to be a terrorist organization as well.

"We are aware of the plot that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group plans against Israel". Ten members of the group died in the tunnel.
