According to reports, Hamas has now produced several dozen short-range rockets that can carry a relatively heavy explosive load and is putting Israel on High-Alert! The report described the rocket as “completely different than any weaponry we know from the direction of the Gaza Strip; this was regarding the weight of the explosive payload.” The reason there is a concern being raised from this report is the fact that in the event of a future conflict between Israel and Hamas, the new rocket would have the most effect on the Israeli communities bordering the Gaza Strip.
Excerpt From Jerusalem Post:
Weapons smuggling into the Hamas-run enclave from the Sinai Peninsula has decreased due to the group’s efforts to improve ties with Egypt, leading Hamas to invest in producing its own rockets. Hamas has boasted of its growing arsenal, testing its stockpile on an almost regular basis since the conclusion of 2014’s Operation Protective Edge.
