The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is an Islamist terrorist organization, based in Damascus, Syria and very active in Gaza and beyond.

The radical Islamic extremist organization was established by Palestinian students in Egypt[1] in 1979 prominantly by Fathi Shkaki and other former members of the Muslim Brotherhood[2] who were admirers of the Iranian Revolution and the Muslim Brotherhood ideology.[1]

Since the death of Shkaki it is led by Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah.[2]

It concentrates on spectacular attacks against Israeli civilians and military forces, sometimes using women and children as suicide bombers.

Its most deadly attacks include the October 2003 suicide bombing at the Maxim restaurant in Haifa, killing 22 and wounding 60; the June 2002 suicide bombing at Meggido junction, killing 17 and wounding 50; and the March 1996 suicide bombing of the Dizengoff shopping mall in Tel Aviv, killing 13 and injuring 75. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the July 12, 2005 suicide attack on a Netanya shopping mall, killing 5 and wounding 90 and at the Netanya mall on December 5, 2005, killing 5 and wounding 50. The group claimed responsibility (along with the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade) for the April 17, 2006 bombing of the old central bus station in Tel Aviv, killing 11 and wounding 70 and the January 29, 2007 attack on a bakery in Eilat, which killed three.[1]

One of its most notable terrorist attack was committed at the Beit Lid Junction in 1995 which resulted in the death of eight Israeli soldiers. It is funded by the governments of Iran and Syria and has established an alliance with Hamas.[2] Since 1987 it is cooperating with Hezbollah and receives training from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.[3]


It made headlines at an escape of 6 terrorists, five of them members of this Islamic-terror group have escaped prison in Sep/2021.[4][5] The architect of that prison break actually stated that they were very well treated in Israeli prison.[6][7][8]


Like Hamas, its stated goal is the destruction of Israel.[1] The creation of an Islamic state in "Palestine" in its place as well as the belief that Islamic law should be forced on the Arab and Muslim states and then on the rest of the world. It is recognized as an terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, Australia and Israel.[2]

Like Hezbollah and Hamas, it systematically uses its civilian population (Human shields by terrorists). In July 2021, its depo in Gaza at a civilian area, exploded and caused injuries and deaths.[9][10]

Racism

On Aug 10, 2006, Ashraf Hanisha stabbed to death Italian student peace activist mistakenly thinking he is a Jew.[11][12]

Like Hamas and Hezbollah, it is oart of Islamic Republic of Iran's triangle proxies.[13]

    Mahmoud Arda is the architect of the escape from Gilboa Prison. He planned and led the tunnel excavation for no less than 9 months. Arda was the last to get out of the tunnel - and the first to get caught. Here are some excerpts from his police investigations:...

    I have known for 15 years that under the showers, in all the cells the floor is weak, and it is possible to dig a tunnel - but I did nothing, because our situation was good, there were universities, good food, visits and cell phones...

    An Israeli military court sentenced a Palestinian to life imprisonment Thursday for the 2006 killing of an Italian tourist near Jerusalem's old city. Angelo Frammartino, from the town of Monte Rotondo near Rome, was fatally stabbed last August in what the military described as an ambush near the Herod's Gate entrance to the walled city. He was 24 when he died. Ashraf Hanaisha was arrested within days of the stabbing and confessed, the military said. He pleaded guilty at the opening of his trial and was convicted of murder.  At the time of Hanaisha's arrest, the army said he had told interrogators he had intended to kill a Jew, and the murder of the Italian tourist was a mistake.
