Photos: Hamas Weaponry and Tactics

Vodpod videos no longer available.

View our new Flickr album, a collection of photos of Hamas weaponry and tactics from 2005-2011.

Since Israel’s 2005 disengagement from the Gaza Strip, the Hamas terrorist organization has turned Gaza into a central hub of terror activity.

Over the last decade, Hamas and other terror organizations under its jurisdiction have launched thousands of rockets into major Israeli population centers in southern Israel, populated by one million Israeli civilians. Hamas is also responsible for orchestrating a long series of suicide bombings during the Second Intifada, killing hundreds of Israeli civilians.

The above Flickr album covers Hamas’ weaponry and tactics. Active in smuggling weapons, the terrorist organization Hamas uses the sea and underground tunnels to import weaponry into the Gaza Strip. Tunnels are a means for weapons smuggling and kidnapping Israeli soldiers; dummies are designed to trick Israeli soldiers into entering booby-trapped areas; religious centers are desecrated as weaponry hideouts and Palestinian civilians are cynically exploited–Hamas and its state sponsors will stop at nothing to destroy the state of Israel.
