QUDS, Aug. 14 (Saba) -Since the start of the many-day aggression on Gaza, Israeli media has been boasting about the strikes which killed commanders of the Islamic Jihad resistance group.
Picturing the Gaza-based movement as ‘weak’ and ‘defeated’, Israeli media focused on the “blows” occupation military had dealt by killing the group’s northern and southern command chiefs.
More than 1100 rockets have been launched by the Palestinian resistance at the occupied territories in less than 60 hours, Palestinian and Israeli media reported. Rockets were launched at Gaza border settlements, Tel Aviv and Al-Quds (Jerusalem).
“Rockets launched on Sunday at Al-Quds were precision, and caused great damage,” Palestine Today quoted an Israeli official as saying.
Talking about the Islamic Jihad’s arsenal, Rai said that the group is “already winning in the firepower stakes,” and it is in possession of some 8,000 short-range rockets including some anti-tank missiles.
“Most of its weapons are now locally produced in Gaza, and in recent years it has developed an arsenal that includes some longer-range rockets capable of striking Tel Aviv.”
