The military wing of Islamic Jihad announced Sunday that it completed a watch tower next to the border with Israel.

The al-Quds Brigade said the watch tower, in Khuza'a in the eastern part of the Gaza Strip, is eight meters tall and was intentionally built directly across from an IDF structure 500 meters away from the border. From the the tower, as seen in the pictures the group provided, IDF structures were visible, as well as an IDF jeep patrolling the border.



Abu Ahmad, a senior member of the brigades said that "the struggle in the name of the Arab people has already begun."
