“The Israeli military said Thursday it is sending additional forces to the area around the Gaza Strip as it braces for possible attacks after the arrest of a senior militant in the West Bank this week. Authorities closed roads and other areas around Gaza after a raid Monday night, in which troops arrested a senior member of the Islamic Jihad militant group in the occupied West Bank town of Jenin. A Palestinian teenager, who Islamic Jihad claimed as a member, was killed during clashes with the Israeli forces. Islamic Jihad, which rejects Israel’s existence and has carried out scores of deadly attacks over the years, said it was going ‘on alert’ and raising its readiness in response.” (08/04/22)
