A publicity video posted today (Wednesday) by Hamas during the cease-fire this week shows terrorists manufacturing M-75 medium range rockets that can reach Tel Aviv, and circumstantial evidence indicates the work may have taken place during the truce.
A television screen in the background shows an Al Jazeera report of terror tunnels that was broadcast on the first day of last week’s ceasefire, Channel 2 television reported Wednesday night.
The video, in Arabic, was posted on Hamas Al Aksa television network and shows how terrorists put together the rocket.
The speaker in the video praised terrorists for succeeding in striking the “enemy” in Tel Aviv and Lod, meaning the Ben Gurion Airport.
“Your leaders, the losers, claimed during the war that they destroyed our rocket capability,” one of the Hamas workers said,. “Despite the aggression, the manufacturing continues, form the factory straight to the field of battle.”
Hamas spokesman Sami Zuhri said that “the continuation of rocket manufacturing during the war is a message to our friends and to the enemy,” but the TV screen in the video indicates that he made the statement during the truce and not during the war.
The video as shown on Channel 2 can be seen here.
