During Operation Protective Edge, the Israeli military was able to put a dent in the terrorist capabilities of Hamas - specifically its stockpile of rockets. But now, reports The Times of Israel's Avi Issacharoff, the Gaza-based terror group has as many rockets as it did before the 2014 conflict:
At the start of the summer 2014 conflict, Hamas had approximately 12,000 rockets of various ranges, including long-range rockets. It fired approximately 4,600 rockets during the 50-day war, and roughly 4,000 more were hit from the air in Israeli bombardments. That left the terror group with about one-third of its original arsenal.
Since late August 2014, Hamas has worked intensively to regain its military capabilities — replenishing the rocket arsenals, and restoring its terror-tunnel network.
Israeli officials now assess that Hamas has roughly the number of rockets that it had in June 2014. A major difference, though, is that most of the rockets are relatively short range and of lower quality, the officials believe.
