(Worthy News) - The Iranian-backed Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad has committed to spark an escalation on the southern front if Israel enters a military conflict with Lebanon’s Hezbollah on the north, said the Palestinian faction's leader, Ziad Nakhala, in an interview to the state-owned Iranian TV channel Al-Alam.
Islamic Jihad is the second largest military organization in Gaza. Although the group normally works in coordination with Hamas, it has recently subjugated itself almost completely to Iran, despite being a Sunni organization, and was the one that initiated a round of fighting on the southern border last October.
"In the next confrontation with the occupation, the axis of resistance will operate from the north in Lebanon to the south in Gaza," said Nakhala. [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]
