Israel-Gaza violence: The strength and limitations of Hamas,
Although recent tensions between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have led to destruction and casualties on both sides, the two sides are not equal in this fight.
Israel is far more powerful. It has an air force, armed drones, intelligence gathering systems and can target the Gaza Strip at any time. Israel claims to target only those sites that are used for military purposes, but the dense population of the Palestinian territories makes it almost impossible for civilians to die.
Although Hamas and Islamic Jihad are weak parties to the conflict, they have the weapons to take action against Israel. Israeli forces recently shot down a drone that could have been armed. Israel also claims that an elite Hamas unit tried to enter Israel through a tunnel from the southern part of the Gaza Strip, but Israel had prior notice and destroyed the tunnel.
What weapons are being used in the Israel-Gaza conflict ,
The most important weapons possessed by Palestinian militant groups are surface-to-surface missiles. Some of these, such as the current-guided anti-tank missiles, are thought to have been brought from Egypt through tunnels.
But most of Hamas' and Islamic Jihad's weapons come from an armaments factory inside the Gaza Strip. The Israelis believe that Iranian experts were involved in the construction of the factory. Israel claims to target weapons production and storage facilities.
It is impossible to estimate how many weapons Hamas has. The Israeli military has its own estimates, but they are not released. His spokesman says only that Hamas could continue to do so for a long time. The Palestinians seem to be using a variety of rockets, but none of them are newer or more complex. But for the most part, the trend is that both the range and payload of weapons are increasing.
Lessons from Israel's Wars in Gaza | RAND,
There are many types of missile names and models, but Hamas has several short-range missiles, such as the Qassam (6 to 10 km range) or Al-Quds 101 (16 km range). There are also grade systems (55km range) and Siegel 55 (55km range). Also, mortar shells are used for the shortest range.
But Hamas also has long-range systems such as the M-75 (75km range), Al-Fajr (up to 100km), R-160 (up to 120km) and some M-302S that are 200km range. So it is clear that Hamas weapons could target Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, as well as the coastal areas of Israel, where most of the country's population and most important installations are located.
Israel bombing Gaza to stop Hamas rockets shows why its,
The Israeli military claims that of the nearly 1,000 rockets fired at it in the past three days, about 200 fell within the Gaza Strip, possibly in the process of making IEDs or assembling them in different locations. Reflects the problems that come with the cause.
The Israeli military says 90 percent of the rockets fired were intercepted by its Iron Dome system. But part of the Iron Dome, which was defending the city of Ashkelon, was offline in recent tensions due to a technical glitch. This is not a completely 100% successful anti-missile system...READMORE
