Islamic Jihad's military wing released a propaganda video against Israel Thursday in response to the IDF's destruction of one of the group's tunnels.

Nine were killed in the blast near the Israeli-Gaza border in Rafah Tuesday, including two senior figures of the group's military wing and a Hamas militant.

The tunnel was "meant to bring about the release of Palestinian prisoners from the Israeli prisons,” Khaled al-Batash, a senior Islamic Jihad official, said Tuesday.

In other words, it was meant to abduct Israeli soldiers.

The footage from the Al-Quds Brigades shows activists posing with rockets in tunnel openings, and conducting observations of the IDF's work near the border security fence on the Gaza Strip. At the end of the video, written in Hebrew, the message is clear: "Time is running out, Al Al-Quds."
