Israel arrests 'Islamic Jihad' leader as threats traded

Since 2008, Israel has launched three offensives on the Gaza Strip.

Also on Tuesday, the army closed off a number of tourist attractions near the Gaza border, out of concerns that the terrorist group may carry out a sniper attack on visitors.

The group said it would not back down on its "right" to retaliate against Israel for the tunnel explosion, which led to the deaths of 12 of its members, including two commanders, as well as two members of Hamas's military wing.

Earlier on Monday, the IDF said that West Bank-based PIJ leader Tariq Qa'adan had been arrested, prompting outrage from the group, which said it was "part of the occupation's latest escalation against Islamic Jihad and our people", according to Palestine Today, a news site affiliated with the group.

"Our message to Israel: Your hands, drenched in the blood of our children, will not stop killing until they are cut off or expelled from our land and country", warned the statement.

Israel's October 30 blowing up of the tunnel resulted in the deaths of 12 Palestinian fighters from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The IDF wants to prepare a quick response in the event that the Islamic Jihad decides to act and also to enable the work on the barrier to continue. "We advise the Islamic Jihad leadership in Damascus to be careful and get things under control", he continued.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned of retaliation, saying any attack on Israel emanating from the Gaza Strip will be met with a harsh response.

USA special envoy Jason Greenblatt took to Twitter early Tuesday morning, saying PIJ provocations against Israel threaten Gaza's civilian population and are unsafe.

"The reckless actions and statements of militants in Gaza risk a unsafe escalation".

Greenblatt wrote that the Palestinian Authority must accept full responsibility in Gaza: "US is working with the PA, Israel, Egypt & others to try to improve the situation".
