The arrest of the senior Islamic Jihad figure, who the group identified as 47-year-old Tareq Qa'adan, came after Israel threatened it would respond to an attack it believed the group was planning in response to Israel destroying one of its cross-border tunnels two weeks ago, killing 10 group fighters and two belonging to Hamas. "In any case, we see Hamas as responsible for every attack that emanates from, or is planned against us in the Gaza Strip", he said.
Work on Israel's new underground barrier with Gaza has also been affected by the increased tension.

Ten PIJ operatives, including two senior commanders, were killed during Israel's operation to destroy the tunnel.
