Islamic Jihad warned on Thursday that it has the capability to launch more than 1,000 rockets a day into Israel for months”.

Speaking to Hezbollah affiliated TV channel Al-Manar on Thursday, Islamic Jihad leader Ziad al-Nakhal said “we operated with little military capability (in the latest round of fighting in Gaza). I do not exaggerate when I say that we can launch more than 1,000 rockets a day into Israel for months. The resistance has the ability to harm any target within the Israeli entity.”

Al-Nakhal also stressed that the West Bank “is an integral part of the Palestinian resistance plan, and in the future there will be surprises in its territory – the attacks against Israel will take a new turn.”

US President Donald Trump’s peace deal was “born dead”, al-Nakhal said, echoing the Palestinian Authority, which is boycotting the US-led economic conference in Bahrain next month.

“The Palestinian people are ready for a prolonged confrontation with the Israeli occupation. Not everything that they hope for in the framework of the ‘Deal of the Century’ will be carried out. The ‘Deal of the Century’ was born dead and has no value as long as the Palestinians oppose it,” he said.
