Islamic Jihad: There Is No Ceasefire

Islamic Jihad’s Gaza head, Ramadan Abdallah Salah, announced Tuesday evening that the organization he heads has not agreed to a ceasefire. There will be no ceasefire unless Israel commits not to assassinate terrorists, he reiterated.

The lull in rocket attacks means the current round of battle has ended, but not that Islamic Jihad is done waging war on Israel, he said. Salah expressed satisfaction with the results of the massive bombardment of the past several days, saying, “We created a new balance of deterrence.”
