Islamic Jihad: We will not give in

Islamic Jihad, the second largest armed group in the Gaza Strip after Hamas, responded to the escalation between Israel and Hamas in Gaza on Friday, which included the killing of an IDF soldier on the Gaza border.

"We underline our right to protect ourselves and to respond to the terrorist aggression," the Islamic statement said, according to Israel‘s Channel ten news.

"The Israeli terror leadership should know that we will not give in to its policies," Islamic Jihad added.
