Shallah boasted that this is the first time that the Palestinian resistance forced a new type of truce on Israel. He threatened that the Islamic Jihad's military wing will extend its rocket fire deeper into Israel, in response to Israel's threats to increase the scope of its attacks on Gaza. "They (the Israelis) know where they (the rockets) can reach," Shallah said.

He added that the Islamic Jihad will not accept any agreement that does not include an end to the targeted killings policy. "Despite the occupation, the destruction and isolation attempts, the resistance can defend itself and can introduce panic and disrupt the daily routine of many Israelis," he boasted.
Earlier on Tuesday, senior Israeli defense officials expressed concern that an Iran-backed terrorist group will try to carry out a massive attack, unrelated to the firing of rockets.
