Exclusive: PIJ delegation, led by Al-Nakhalah to visit Cairo Thursday
An Islamic Jihad Movement delegation led by its Secretary-General Ziyad Al-Nakhalah is heading to Cairo, Egypt, on Thursday, to discuss the escalation with the Israeli occupation.
Al Mayadeen sources revealed an upcoming visit by the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), Ziad Al-Nakhalah, to Cairo, upon an Egyptian invitation.
The delegation will include all five members of the Political Bureau in Gaza and others from abroad, accompanied by the Secretary-General, the sources stated.
Based on the sources' information, the delegation will head to Cairo tomorrow, Thursday, and meetings with Egyptian officials will begin early next week and will include discussions of the escalation, especially under the new Israeli government.
A week ago, sources told Al Mayadeen about contacts the Islamic Jihad leadership had with regional and international parties, during which the movement blamed "Israel" for the repercussions of the crime in Jenin.
The same sources added that the Islamic Jihad Movement warned that if the occupation crimes in Jenin continue, the situation would lead to a major explosion.
A few days ago, the PIJ movement called for an escalation in the face of the Israeli occupation and unification of the resistance's front against "Tel Aviv".
The PIJ stressed that the Israeli occupation's criminality would increase the Palestinian people's strength and resilience in confronting the IOF in all arenas.
The movement also underlined that the new crime, which saw the IOF murdering 10 Palestinians and injuring dozens - so far - would not go unresponded, noting that the freedom fighters would retaliate against the condemned crime. "The enemy's terrorism will cause all hell to break loose against it."
The visit comes days after the Israeli occupation forces raided the Jenin camp in occupied Palestine's West Bank, leaving residents and popular resistance groups with no choice but to defend themselves and confront the occupation forces.
