IDF: Gaza Terrorists Have Hundreds of Rockets Aimed at Tel Aviv

(Ha'aretz) Gili Cohen - Terrorist organizations in Gaza have hundreds of rockets with a range of 80 km., enough to hit Tel Aviv and the surrounding area, Brig. Gen. Itai Brun, head of the IDF Military Intelligence Research Department, told the Herzliya Conference on Monday. He said that altogether, some 170,000 missiles and rockets are currently aimed at Israel from Lebanon, Syria and Gaza, with 10,000 being medium- or long-range missiles. Terrorist organizations are also working to make their missiles more accurate by attaching GPS-based guidance systems. "Iran is the principle source of know-how" for these efforts, he said. "The force-building efforts of both [Hamas and Islamic Jihad] are focused on developing locally produced rockets with a range of 80 kilometers, as well as tunnels" for use in cross-border attacks, he added.
