Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine: Palestinian Islamist terror organization
The Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, known in the West as simply Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), is a Damascus-based Palestinian Islamist terrorist organization formed in 1981. PIJ together with Hamas and six other factions are members of the Alliance of Palestinian Forces, which rejects the Oslo Accords and whose objective is the destruction of the State of Israel and the establishment of a sovereign, Islamic Palestinian state. Neither PIJ nor Hamas are members of PLO. PIJ has been labelled a terrorist organisation by the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel.
