Islamic Jihad leader Ahmad al-Mudallal said that his group was committed to a cease-fire with Israel but would retaliate to any IDF attacks on Gaza, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported Thursday.
The cease-fire, which was brokered by Egypt, came into effect at 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning following four days of rocket attacks on southern Israel by Palestinian terrorists and IDF strikes on Gaza terror cells.
