The military spokesman reported.

In the Israeli rear, the state of alert has been raised.

More details will be provided later, the spokesperson added.

"The situation in southern Israel is tense. We are not looking for a conflict, but we will not hesitate to defend our citizens, if necessary": this is the message addressed today by Defense Minister Benny Gantz to the leaders of Gaza, after repeated threats. in recent days by Islamic Jihad to conduct attacks on Israel.

"To our enemies, especially the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, I want to say that time is up. This threat will be removed, one way or another."

The escalation on the border between Israel and Gaza came four days ago following the capture of Bassam a-Saadi, the head of Islamic Jihad in the West Bank.

The military wing of his organization has decreed a state of maximum alert among the militiamen and has threatened attacks.

Israel fears in particular anti-tank rocket attacks from Gaza against Israeli vehicles passing along the edge of the Strip and has closed several arteries and a section of the railway to traffic.

Gantz also accused Hamas and Islamic Jihad of "holding hostage" the people of the Strip and of being the cause of their suffering, due to the prolonged closure of the crossings between Gaza and Israel.

In an attempt to avoid an escalation, Egypt has mediated between Israel and Islamic Jihad.

A UN exponent, according to the media,

he also visited a-Saadi's family to reassure them about the health of his relative after news of his being injured during his capture.

Addressing the international community, especially those who have tried to calm the tensions, Gantz assured that "Israel behaves in a responsible and controlled manner".
