Iran Orders Islamic Jihad to Block Any Long-Term Calm for Gaza

Via Ynet News: With the latest round of rocket fire, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) is seeking to prevent any long-term agreement between Hamas and Israel. In addition to seeking to conduct a holy war to destroy Israel, PIJ is also motivated by its need for financial assistance from its Iranian sponsors.
Tehran has instructed the PIJ and other Iranian proxies to increase their terror activity in the wake of the killing of Revolutionary Guards Gen. Qasem Soleimani by the U.S. in January. Hamas understands that Islamic Jihad is intent on disrupting any agreement that will lead to calm but is unable to stop it.
