Islamic Jihad vows harsh response to IAF strike

"What happened today is a brutal massacre committed against innocent civilians and fighters from our group," said Kader Abib, an Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza speaking to protesters outside a hospital morgue following an IAF strike in which two of the group's operatives were killed. "The Zionist enemy insists on shedding Palestinian blood and we insist on going ahead with our Jihad and resistance. God willing the resistance groups ... will have a harsh response. All options are open for us."
