The IDF during November 2013 detected the launch of eleven M75 rockets from Gaza to the sea, testing the rocket which is capable of reaching Tel Aviv. Almost the same number of test launches was detected in October too.
IDF Colonel Amos Cohen, a Gaza district commander explains terrorists in Gaza are busy preparing for the next confrontation with IDF forces.
In the interim, Israel continues to permit the transport of building materials into Gaza, which includes metallic cylinders and other components of the M75 and other rockets. While the materials are intended for construction, terrorists continue taking what they wish to rearm and prepare for the next military confrontation with Israel. Colonel Cohen told Walla News the policy permitting importation of building materials is being reevaluated.
