Shin Bet: Hamas has rockets that can hit the city of Ashdod

July 23, 2008 10:08 P.M. (Updated: July 23, 2008 10:08 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - The head of the Israeli Shin Bet (General Security Service) Yuval Dickson said during a meeting of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and Security at the Knesset on Wednesday that Hamas has rockets that can hit Kiryat Gat and even the city of Ashdod.

Dickson claimed that the Palestinian organizations smuggled the rockets into the Gaza Strip after the Israeli withdrawal in 2005. He said that they have 222 tons of explosive materials in addition to ten million rifles and various types of anti-tank missiles.

He further accused Hamas of making use of the truce to smuggle in weapons. Even if Hamas is just silent for the sake of the truce, he continued, they are simply using the time to develop their forces in the Gaza Strip.
