A Palestinian official tells the Kan public broadcaster that Palestinian Islamic Jihad has been significantly pressuring Hamas to join their military front against Israel following the IDF’s airstrikes earlier today.

Thus far, Hamas seems to have avoided going all-in with PIJ, issuing statements expressing solidarity with those killed while also avoiding clear declarations regarding their intentions to actively join or lead the fight against Israel from Gaza.
