The IDF arrested a Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist in the West Bank on Sunday night after the continued threats by the terror group in response to the strike on the terror tunnel in October.

Two of the dead belonged to the military wing of Hamas, with the other ten from Islamic Jihad.

The Israel Defense Forces blew up the tunnel, which originated in the Gazan city of Khan Younis and crossed into Israeli territory, near Kibbutz Kissufim, on October 30.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday warned Palestinian groups in Gaza against carrying out attacks in revenge for the operation.

In a message in Arabic published on Saturday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) head Maj. "I mean anyone - rebel factions, organisations, anyone", he said in an apparent reference to Islamic Jihad.

Islamic Jihad, on their part, has sent instructions to their followers to commit a major terrorist attack against Israel as soon as possible. "In any event, we see Hamas responsible for any attack launched or organized from the Gaza Strip against us".

The PA president also said the "precise implementation" of the Egyptian-brokered deal between Hamas and Fatah to advance reconciliation efforts would alleviate the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

The "threats to target the movement's leadership is a declaration of war, which we will confront", the terror group said in statement disseminated by its media affiliate, the Palestine Today news agency.

Israel is building in settlements around the West Bank, where the Palestinians want to establish a state.

Israel has said it is holding the bodies of five militants retrieved from the tunnel and implied it would try to use them as bargaining chips to retrieve the remains of two Israeli soldiers believed to be held by Hamas.
