Ziad Al-Nakhala, the leader of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, spoke with the families of those who were killed in IDF air strikes in the Gaza Strip last week, including senior commanders of the Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front and the Mujahideen Brigades organizations.

Al-Nakhala noted that “the blood of the shaheeds will continue to be the fuel of the Palestinian resistance against Zionist terrorism", and added that it strengthens the determination "to continue on the path of jihad and fighting until the liberation of Palestine and the return of the refugees."

Meanwhile, Ahmed Al-Mudallal, a member of the political bureau of the Islamic Jihad, said that the Al-Quds Brigades, the military arm of the Islamic Jihad, and the other Palestinian Arab organizations still have the military ability to strike deep within Israel.

In an interview with Al-Quds Al-Youm TV, Al-Mudallal said that Israel understands that the elimination of a senior commander in the organization leads to the promotion of another, more competent and sophisticated commander.

He claimed that the most recent campaign, which the Palestinian Arabs titled the "Revenge of the Free People", established a new equation in the rules of the game with Israel, which believed that it could focus the fighting on the Islamic Jihad only, but it encountered a united Palestinian Arab line and the bombing of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and many other towns.

Al-Mudallal pointed out that the last round of fighting advanced the Palestinian Arabs on the way to victory over the "Zionist enemy and its removal from the occupied land".

"The Prime Minister of the occupation Benjamin Netanyahu did not estimate that there would be five days of hell," Al-Mudallal claimed, adding that Netanyahu "surrendered to the conditions of the Islamic Jihad."
