breaking israel news gaza

(Worthy News) - Israeli defense officials on Monday warned that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad appeared to be planning to conduct a large-scale terror attack on the Gaza border in order to derail ongoing cease-fire negotiations between Israel and Hamas, according to two Hebrew media reports.

The unnamed officials told Palestinian affairs correspondents from the Ynet news site and Channel 12 television station that members of the Iran-backed group had been seen conducting “suspicious activities” near the security fence over the past day.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad is the second-most powerful terror group in the Gaza Strip, after the coastal enclave’s de facto rulers, Hamas, though it is believed to have a slightly larger arsenal of rockets and mortar shells, mostly locally manufactured varieties based on Iranian designs.
