Israelis live under the constant threat of terrorism. And recently, Israel’s Army Radio reported that Hamas has begun developing a new high-powered rocket that is very similar to rockets used by Hezbollah. As Hamas increases its rocket capabilities, Israeli authorities say they will continue to protect innocent civilians from harm.

The Jewish New Service reports:

The report described the new Hamas rocket as being “completely different than any weaponry we know from the direction of the [Gaza] Strip—as concerns the weight of the explosive carried in the head of the rocket.”

In response to the IDF-affiliated radio network’s report, Ashkelon Coast Regional Council head Yair Farjoun, whose home city shares a border with Gaza, stated, “We are prepared for every scenario and if we need to evacuate, we will evacuate. Civilians do not need to be on the front lines.”
