Islamic Jihad's military wing, al-Quds Brigades, released a video on Tuesday documenting the preparations conducted by its tunnel fighters to avenge the blood of Palestinians "executed" by the IDF.
The two-minute long video, titled "Blood readiness," starts by showing an IDF soldier that while inspecting Palestinian cars at a West Bank checkpoint, orders a suspicious young Palestinian to step out of his family's car in order to question him.
Shortly afterward, the Israeli soldier violently pulls the Palestinian out of the car and shoots him, even though the latter raises his hand in a gesture of surrender.
After he is killed, drops of blood falling from the young Palestinian are seen slowly leaking underneath the road he is laid on, finally landing on a Quds Brigades fighter who is busy digging tunnels under the Gaza-Israel border. When he notices the blood drops falling on him, the fighter accelerates his digging pace to rapidly avenge the Palestinian blood.
The video ends with a message from Quds Brigades: "Our people in Jerusalem, when you die, you die as martyrs and when we are silent, we are busy preparing for war."
The video appears to be an attempt by Islamic Jihad to ride the wave of popular Palestinian outrage toward Israel following the "extrajudicial execution" of a Palestinian terrorist by an IDF soldier in Hebron on Thursday.
A video released by the NGO B'Tselem documented the soldier firing a shot to the head of an already wounded Palestinian terrorist, as he lay on his back in a Hebron street, near the Jewish Tel Rumeida neighborhood.
On March 16, the Quds Brigades released another propaganda video,
threatening attacks on the IDF from Gaza. The video presents four fighters in the Quds Brigades conducting observations on an IDF jeep stationed behind Israel's border with the Gaza Strip and preparing to launch advanced Sager rockets on the jeep.
