Hamas Boosts Rocket Range, Reaching Deeper Into Israel

by Wochit 1:08 mins

Israeli officials and analysts say, the dramatically improved range of Hamas' rocket arsenal is allowing the militant group to reach deeper into Israel and expose a wider swath of the country to risk. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a spokesman for the Israeli Defense Force said, after its last major conflict with Israel in 2012, Hamas saw the advantage of building long-range rockets to target Israel's population and, "all investments after that was in long-range rockets." In the current conflict, one Hamas rocket reached the Israeli town of Hadera, traveling an estimated 68 miles. Israel believes the Syrian-made rockets were supplied by Iran. The Israelis raised concerns about the M-302 in March when they intercepted a shipment of the M-302 rockets, which they said were being smuggled by Iran into Gaza. The M-302 can reach up to 100 miles.
