Hamas says video shows 'Fajr' missiles being launched

Nov. 15, 2012 1:42 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 15, 2012 1:42 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hamas' military wing released footage on Thursday that it said showed "Fajr" missiles being launched toward Tel Aviv, after the Israeli military claimed to have destroyed most of them.

The footage distributed by the al-Qassam Brigades followed the release by Israel's army of a video it said showed its air force destroying Fajr missiles in Gaza.

A day earlier Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told reporters that most of Hamas' Fajr missiles were destroyed in the first hour of the Israeli army's assault on Gaza.

"Israel does not want war, but Hamas' provocations -- the firing on the south, the explosives tunnel and the anti-tank missile fire on a jeep -- all these obligated us to act with intensity," he said.
