Hamas military wing says still manufacturing M75 rockets

Aug. 14, 2014 12:47 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 14, 2014 12:47 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas' military wing is continuing to produce M75 missiles in the besieged coastal enclave, the group said Thursday.

The Hamas-affiliated al-Aqsa TV channel aired footage Wednesday showing a workshop manufacturing rockets in the Gaza Strip.

"Your futile leadership claimed they destroyed our missile potency, but our manufacturers continue to produce missiles and send them to the field," a member of the manufacturing crew says in the footage.

M75 rockets are locally produced in Gaza by Hamas engineers and have a range of roughly 80 kilometers.

They were fired at Tel Aviv for the first time during Israel's 2012 military assault on Gaza.
