Last night (Monday), US President Donald Trump’s Assistant and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt harshly criticized the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ): “Extremist statements and provocation vs. Israel by Islamic Jihad significantly harm the people of Gaza and are very dangerous.”

“The PA must resume full responsibility in Gaza,” Greenblatt tweeted. “US is working with the PA, Israel, Egypt and others to try to improve the situation. Gaza deserves better.” As reported yesterday by JOL, the IDF has deployed Iron Dome batteries throughout central Israel amid the rising tensions with the PIJ in Gaza following the recent terror tunnel explosion.

The PIJ responded to the IDF Spokesperson Unit’s threats: “The threats of the occupation do not scare us, and they express the fear of the response of the Jihad and the resistance. They are a declaration of war and we will act against it.”
