Founded in the late 1970s, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) is one of the most violent Palestinian terrorist groups. The PIJ maintains that armed struggle by the Palestinian people, in tandem with active support from the Arab and Muslim worlds, is the only viable strategy for achieving its objectives - the destruction of Israel and the complete liberation of Palestine. The PIJ was among the first to use suicide bomb attacks against Israel. In 1995, two PIJ suicide bombers executed a coordinated attack at a bus stop in Beit Lid, killing 19 people and wounding 61. PIJ claimed responsibility for the October 3, 2015, knife attack in Jerusalem which killed 2 Israeli men and wounded the wife and child of one of the deceased. On February 23, 2020, rockets were fired toward southern Israel after Israel said it had killed a Palestinian militant who tried to place a bomb along the Israel-Gaza barrier fence. PIJ launched several rockets at Israel by the time the ceasefire was announced.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad is an extremist organisation that fuses Sunni Islamic and Palestinian national objectives. It is committed to the destruction of Israel and the creation of an Islamic state that includes the Palestinian Territories and Israel.
