Hamas rockets can hit targets north of Tel Aviv

By their actions, it appears they do not care for a peace treaty with Israel.

Israeli report: Hamas rockets can hit targets north of Tel Aviv

Published August 31st, 2010 - 14:18 GMT

Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper reported on Tuesday that Hamas has carried out in the last few days a series of tests for an advanced "Fajr" rocket. Its range can reach 80 kilometers. According to the report, this means Hamas will start within several months to start the production phase in the Gaza Strip. The new rocket can hit targets north of Tel Aviv.
The newspaper said that the progress achieved by Hamas in the missile production field during the last decade is of great concern the Israeli leadership. According to Yediot Ahrono, when Hamas strted to produce Qassam rocket some ten years ago, its range did not exceed 1.5 kilometers. LINK

Israel is now effectively covered by rockets archers, between Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas every inch of Israel could be hit long distance.

Hmm. I'd like to see a pic of this "Fajr" rocket.

They seem to be saying Hamas is constructing a Fajr-5/Khalibar-1 variant.

But Israeli claims of Hamas capabilities have been so grossly inflated in the past, we really need to see credible evidence for this latest claim.

Please post pics if and when available.

Let's see, a couple of years ago during cast lead they hit 20 km south of Tel-Aviv on a regular basis while being engaged on the ground and from the air, I think it's more then safe to assume they were able to bridge those extra km...

Golani,

You are implying here that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza strip is a failure in improving Israel safety, that's a big progress on your part, congratulations!

Can any implied failure be attributed to the Israeli blockade? Or maybe it's just that the terrorists are so motivated and well supplied that these weapons still get through?

It's quite simple, I'll try to translate the phrase I know in Hebrew into English-
"The line of contact will forever be breeched".
That's why we should use depth as part of our defensive posture (but can't achieve it since we withdrew Gaza and sense or "blockade" is very lied back).

Of course that's without mentioning the passivity of action against tunnels and smuggles.

Bottom line- a blockade (even if it was a harsh and effective one) can only deprive 100%-X of the enemy supplies.

Gaza mortar round narrowly misses Israel kindergarten
* September 08, 2010 5:28PM

LINK

PALESTINIAN militants fired a mortar round from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday narrowly missing a kindergarten in a kibbutz in southern Israel, the military said, as Jews prepared to mark their New Year.

There were no casualties or damage from the mortar fire against the collective settlement several kilometres from Gaza's northeastern border with Israel.

"A mortar shell fired from the Gaza Strip fell near a nursery school in a kibbutz in the Shaar HaNegev region," a spokeswoman said.

"There were no injuries or damage."

It was the third such incident of rocket fire in as many days and came as Israel imposed a precautionary closure on the Palestinian territories ahead of celebrations for Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashanah, which starts at sundown.

Israel frequently closes the main transit points into the West Bank during major holidays, although Gaza, which was seized by the radical Islamist Hamas movement in 2007, is under a permanent blockade.


This part below is good news. Let's see if these arrests lead anywhere or if the charges will be dropped.

Quote:
Earlier today, the Palestinian Authority said it had arrested an unspecified number of Hamas activists believed to be responsible for two shooting attacks in the West Bank last week, one of which left four Jewish settlers dead.

Even after israel continuing to oppose their enemies, they remained enemies. What a shock.
