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.

"We don’t trust the occupation but we trust our steadfastness and resistance. We cannot be quiet during any aggression on the Palestinian people," the Islamic Jihad official told Ma'an.
