(JNS.org) Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is amassing M-75 rockets with a range 43 miles and the capability to reach the Tel Aviv Metropolitan area. While the number of such rockets currently in the group’s possession is still small, Hamas is rapidly working to grow the arsenal. The group does currently have hundreds of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles.

Although many of the tunnels connecting Gaza and Egypt were destroyed or shut down by the Egyptian army, many of those used to smuggle arms have been damaged less, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday. However, due to the Egyptian closure of some tunnels, Hamas is losing $230 million a month from the revenue it was earning by taxing smuggled goods a senior official in the terrorist organization said Monday according to AFP.
