13-Nov-11: The Gazan terror rockets are back in action tonight

A Qassam rocket was fired from the northern part of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip into southern Israel this evening (Sunday), exploding in an open area inside the Sha'ar Hanegev region. Ynet says there are no reports of injury or damage so far, which was not the intention of the terrorists.Ynet quotes an IDF spokesperson saying the Gaza-based terrorists have been steadily expanding their already formidable arsenal, in part with weapons smuggled out of Libya.

There is little doubt their rockets are capable of striking Tel Aviv, Israel's cultural and business hub and the heartland of this tiny state. The Gazan terrorists, including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and smaller gangs, now possess sophisticated anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, according to the un-named IDF official:
"Many arms have flooded into Gaza in the wake of the Libyan revolution, with looted weapons making their way through Egypt's Sinai peninsula and into Gaza through the border tunnels.. The weapons have not changed militants' abilities, since armed groups already possessed these arms. But the amount of weapons has grown substantially."
