GAZA, (PIC)– Islamic Jihad movement on Sunday held the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) fully responsible for the consequences of its military escalation on the Gaza Strip.

The movement said in a press release that it was entitled to retaliate to the Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people.

The IOA claims of not being concerned with military escalation are “sheer lies” aimed at misleading the world’s public opinion and rallying it against the Palestinians, who are defending themselves with all means available to them, the statement underlined.

Israeli warplanes targeted a car in northern Gaza on Saturday morning killing two Islamic Jihad field commanders and seriously wounding a third.

“The treacherous crime came only hours after the Palestinian factions announced their agreement on not escalating resistance as long as the Zionist enemy stopped its aggression and violations”, Jihad said.

The movement charged that the attack proves that Israel was not committed to any calm and that it was planning a new war on the Strip.
