10-Jan-10: Show and tell

Yesterday (Saturday) another three Qassam rockets crashed into Israel from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. They landed in Israel's Sha'ar Hanegev region. Fortunately there are no reports of injuries or damage. On Thursday night, for the first time since the Cast Lead campaign of a year ago, a Hamas Katyusha rocket was fired into the area of Ashkelon, landing just south of the city.

Saturday's volley of Qassam rockets came just after a Hamas announcement that it has managed to smuggle new types of weapons into Gaza despite Israel's and Egypt's blockade. JPost quotes an Izzadin al-Kassam Brigades spokesthug saying the group has "thousands of fighters and good weapons capable of harming Israel." Reinforcing just how ready these people are for more war, the Islamic terrorists published photographs of their new in-place weapons, including missiles with a double warhead, 107mm caliber missiles designed to penetrate fortified structures, and a new type of armor-piercing RPG missile.
