GAZA, (PIC)– The Islamic Jihad Movement has warned that the Palestinian resistance will not stand idly by watching Israel’s escalation of its aggression against the Gaza Strip. “The resistance is closely and carefully monitoring the development of events”, spokesman for the Movement Dawoud Shihab stated on Wednesday. Shihab, however, stressed that “the resistance is committed to defending and protecting the Palestinian people.” “The resistance in Gaza will not allow the occupation to impose a new fait accompli through attacking the Strip, and the Palestinian people will not allow it to impose the policy of coexistence on Gaza,” the spokesman said. “The resistance is in a constant state of preparation for response to the occupation’s crimes,” he added. He pointed out that “Israel has tightened its blockade on Gaza and stopped the wheel of reconstruction that was moving very slowly because of its measures, while its persistent attacks have reached a serious level of escalation in Gaza, Jerusalem and the West Bank.” Since last Tuesday, tension has been mounting across the border fence, including an exchange of shells east of Gaza city and around Israel’s Nahal Oz military base as well as in areas east of Rafah. The tension started after the Israeli army carried out several incursions into Gaza at the pretext of looking for tunnels.

GAZA, (PIC)– An exhibition for national products was held by the Islamic University in the blockaded Gaza Strip as part of a national and international campaign to boycott Israeli products. The exhibition, bearing the slogan “Gaza: Resistance and Boycott,” has been held to boost consumption of local Palestinian products. Head of the Islamic University, Dr. Adel Awad, said during the inauguration: “Today the academic field and the economic sector have joined forces to support national products.” “The Islamic University is trying its best to work out industrial problems through applied scientific research,” said Awad. “Gaza is not a dumping ground for Israeli products. Palestinians should have access to good-quality national products.” Chairman of the International Relations and Boycott Campaign Committee, Dr. Basem Naim, said boosting consumption of national products is an efficient means to minimize consumption of Israeli products. “Despite the Israeli siege and tough circumstances, the national manufacturer is able to survive thanks to his/her top-quality products,” citizen Tamer Abu Shamam said as he exposed samples of solar energy systems, power adapters, battery chargers, and lighting devices manufactured by a local company. Hamza al-Sharfa, who presented samples of Palestinian perfumes, expressed his pride and delight over the exhibition, saying supporting national products is a sign of economic resistance and a challenge to the tough siege.
