Captain Obvious joins the jihad. “‘Truce means nothing to us,’ Islamic Jihad threatens,” from Kuwait News Agency, April 11 (thanks to Twostellas):
GAZA, April 11 (KUNA) — The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement warned Israel on Monday that it would retaliate for any offensive that might be waged on Gaza Strip.
They must not need to reload just now:
The group has not pleaded for a cease-fire “from any party and will not request that from any body,” the group spokesman in Gaza Daoud Shehab said in a statement. “If the war is dictated on us, we will fight and we have nothing to fear or cry for,” he added.
“The truce in our eyes means nothing, we do not trust the occupation or their pledges. What we are concerned about is the field condition. If there is calm, it will be appreciated but if an aggression is waged against our people, nothing will deter us from retaliating,” he warned.
