Gaza, Oct 9: The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a militant group that operates in Palestinian territories, has announced that it has taken custody of 30 Israelis.

In a televised speech on Sunday, Ziad al-Nakhalah, the PIJ secretary-general, said the Israelis would not be released unless Palestinian prisoners were freed from Israeli jails, the media reported.

The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) on Saturday launched a surprise attack on Israeli towns adjacent to the Gaza Strip, prompting Israel to launch retaliatory strikes on Gaza.
