The Islamic Jihad will launch rockets further than Beersheba and Ashdod if Israel continues its "escalation in the Gaza Strip, targeting our children," a senior official of the group said in the London-based  Arabic language daily Al Hayat on Sunday.

"The Israelis must feel similar pain to the harm they caused us," the official stated.

The group is not interested in going to war, and rockets fired on Israel came in response to IDF operations in Gaza which killed eight innocent bystanders including four children, the official said, speaking in Cairo.

"If Israel stops the escalation, we will abide by the truce...but we cannot be asked for calm at a time when Israel is killing our children in cold blood," the official stated.
