Hamas Tests Long-Range Missiles

Hamas has tested long-range missiles by firing them out to sea, according to Arab media reports quoted Sunday in Yisrael Hayom. The missiles in question have a range of dozens of kilometers, similar to the range of the rockets that the terrorist organization fired at Jerusalem and central Israel in November.

The alleged missile tests reportedly took place at Hamas training bases set up in what was once Gush Katif. When Israel destroyed its Gaza communities in 2005, Hamas took over much of the territory to be used for military purposes.
