Aerial Strike on Weapon Research and Development Center

IDF Spokesperson Dec 29th, 2008

Aerial Strike on Weapon Research and Development Center

The Israeli Air Force attacked a number of Hamas targets during the night,
including Hamas outposts, weapon manufacturing facilities and a center for
weapon research and development.

The center, located in the Rimel neighborhood of Gaza City, was targeted in
a combined IDF and the ISA operation, the IAF struck buildings that were
used as meeting places for senior leaders of Hamas.

One of the structures struck housed explosives laboratories that were an
inseparable part of Hamas' research and development program, as well as
places that served as storage facilities for the organization. The
development of these weapons took place under the auspices of senior
lecturers who are activists in Hamas.

Among the weapons that have been developed and manufactured at this site are
Qassam rockets. Hamas has been working tirelessly to extend the range of the
rockets, as has been shown during the past few days.

In February 2007 the Fattah Presidential Guard raided the facility and
uncovered many weapons including approximately 100 Qassam rockets, 250 RPG
launchers, hundreds of assault rifles, lathes, and materials used for rocket
manufacturing.
