The Islamic Jihad is willing to stop firing rockets at Israel if Israel stops its attacks in Gaza, Al-Quds Brigades spokesman Abu Hamza said Monday. In an interview to the Palestinian Ramatan news agency, Abu Hamza stressed that if there were a "national Palestinian consensus" that it refrain from targeting Israel, the group would abide by it. "We are willing to stop shooting rockets if all the Palestinian factions reach an agreement [to do so], and if Israel promises to stop its attacks against Palestinian citizens." According to Abu Hamza, the Islamic Jihad was considering a proposal made by another Palestinian faction - which he did not identify - that it stop rocket attacks in return for the aforementioned demand.
