Israel’s Ynet News reports that a terror group in Gaza called “Islamic Jihad” is attempting to carry out a “significant” attack on Israelis in the coming hours or days.
Israeli security officials noticed unusual activity by the terror group in several locations along Israel’s border with Gaza Monday. According to Ynet, the activity could be an attempt to launch a missile, place explosives along the border fence, or breach the barrier.
On Monday, the Islamic Jihad group denied claims suggesting they were trying to carry out an attack.
“There is no truth to these reports. From time to time Israel tries to create confusion in the Palestinian arena, but these attempts will fail,” the group said in a statement.
An attack could sabotage an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire between Israelis and Palestinians following repeated clashes with Gaza in recent weeks.
Islamic Jihad is believed to be responsible for several rockets fired at Israeli communities along the Gaza border Sunday morning.
