The armed wing of the Gaza- ruling Islamic Hamas movement said on Monday it has bolstered its missile capabilities which can now hit distant targets within Israel.

A spokesman for Izz al-Deen al-Qassam Brigades told reporters in Gaza city on condition of anonymity that his group has the ability to hit targets in Israel, “especially after knowing its weakness points.” He did not elaborate.

“We have moved the battle into the enemy’s field after developing our missile arsenal,” he added.
