Islamic Jihad denies Israeli claims about 'significant' attack

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Islamic Jihad denied the Israeli army’s claims, suggesting the movement was attempting to carry out a “significant terror attack,” in order to sabotage ceasefire negotiations between Israel and Hamas, on Monday.

The Islamic Jihad said in a statement, "There is no truth to these reports. From time to time Israel tries to create confusion in the Palestinian arena, but these attempts will fail.”

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that the Israeli army claimed that the Islamic Jihad is attempting to carry out an “attack or a series of attacks” against Israel in the coming hours or days, apparently in attempt to sabotage the Egyptian mediation efforts between Israel and Hamas.

Sources said that the Israeli army’s claim came after “unusual activity” by members of the Islamic Jihad in several locations along the Israel-Gaza border fence.

Sources explained that the “unusual activity” could be an attempt to fire a missile towards Israel, place explosive charges along the border fence or attempt to cross the fence to carry out a “significant attack” in Israel.
