TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_The Islamic Jihad on Wednesday offered its own terms for the Egyptian-mediated Gaza ceasefire with the Israeli regime, whose airstrikes killed 20 more Palestinians on the second day of renewed escalation.
The Islamic Jihad’s leader Zeyad al-Nakhala laid out the group’s conditions including Israel ending targeted killings and lethal response to Gaza border protests, as well as enacting measures to ease its blockade on the Palestinian enclave.
In an interview with al-Mayadeen TV, Nakhala warned that if a truce is not agreed, the group could continue its cross-border attacks on Israel indefinitely. Nakhala said he is waiting to hear Israel's response via Cairo within hours.
Should a truce not be agreed, he said, "the (Islamic Jihad armed wing) Jerusalem Brigades is able to manage the battle, and for a long time".
