GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Islamic Jihad Fighters Becoming "We are not an army and will not interfere in any international conflict," said a Tehran-backed leader Khaled al-Batsh said when asked whether the group would fire missiles on Israel at the direction of Iran.

"Our main task is to liberate our country, liberate our people. We are not part of an international conflict, "he added during an interview in Gaza City earlier this week.

Any conflict would take place "between two large countries, and I do not believe that there will be war between Iran and America. He added that he did not know how much help Iran provided to his group.
