Israel’s National Security Adviser, Tzachi Hanegbi, has disclosed a staggering revelation about the rocket capabilities of Palestinian militant groups.
According to Reuters, Hanegbi revealed on Saturday that Islamic Jihad possesses approximately 6,000 rockets in its arsenal, while the Islamist Hamas organization surpasses that number with a daunting four times the quantity.
The revelation sheds light on the heightened threat faced by Israel, as these militant groups possess significant firepower that poses a direct challenge to regional security.
Hanegbi’s disclosure underscores the urgency of the situation, highlighting the need for a swift and effective response.
In the midst of the ongoing cross-border fighting that erupted on Tuesday, Hanegbi emphasized that Israel’s current focus lies primarily on neutralizing the militant threat emanating from Gaza.
The priority at this moment is countering the aggressive actions of Gaza militants rather than pursuing an immediate ceasefire.
