Khaled Al-Batash, one of the senior leaders of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group in Gaza, reiterated on Saturday that the organization is determined to retaliate for Israel blowing up a terror tunnel which led from Gaza into Israel, resulting in the deaths of 17 terrorists, most of them members of the Islamic Jihad.
The bodies of 12 of the terrorists were recovered by the Palestinian Authority (PA), while Israel recovered and is holding the bodies of the remaining five.
In an interview with the Palestinian Arab Quds Press news agency, Batash said, "We are not discussing with anyone our right to respond to the killing of 12 Palestinian fighters inside the tunnel and we will not give up this right.
Batash added that the response to the tunnel bombing by Israel is "a right that is not subject to discussion or concession."
Asked about Egyptian and Israeli pressure on the Islamic Jihad to refrain from retaliating, Batash said that "Israel does not frighten us and the response to the killing of our martyrs and our people by the Zionists will be determined by the Al-Quds Brigades (the Islamic Jihads armed wing ed.) which decides on the response and its implementation at the appropriate moment.
Earlier this month, Khader Habib, a senior Islamic Jihad operative in Gaza, said his organization reserved the "right" to respond to the "crime" committed by the "enemy", a reference to the blowing up of the terror tunnel.

On Nos! The Israelites destwoyed the Hamas widdle tonnos dey used to bwing WMDs into israel?
If the bodies were recoverable, they’re not
doing it right.
Muslims have got to be the only people who think they need to ‘retaliate’ when they are prevented from killing civilians.
No better definition of insanity than what was printed in this article.
Kill all terrorists.
Hee, hee, hee.
You go, Israel.
Stomp a mudhole in 'em, then walk it dry.
Say what you will about Israel and any internal problems they may have...they do take care of business when it comes to jihadi scum.
And...methinks Mr. Al Potash-brush, or whatever the hell his name is, now has a target on his jihadi back!
Angry muzzies planning to hurt humans? Big surprise.
“How DARE you kill us when we’re trying to kill you!”
Most of the 17 killed were child laborers ...
Them, and maybe Democrats!
The Israeli’s need to kill many more. They haven’t gotten the message yet.
Trump should force the 57 muslim nations to accept these people as citizens. Scatter them across the area. Then level every structure, then salt the earth
“Instead of really trying to kill you, we will now really, really try to kill you.”
Muslims need to prove Islam is peace. Not the book of lies called Koran.
“Most of the 17 killed were child laborers ...”
Pali children wielding AK-47s are a common sight in Gaza.
“Trump should force the 57 muslim nations to accept these people as citizens. Scatter them across the area. Then level every structure, then salt the earth”
No scatter them, then repatriate Gaza and the West Bank to Israel. It was their land in the first place.

I absolutely hate it when people are too lazy to look up things on their own instead demanding sources - do your own home work. Stop relying on others to do it for you.
