Israeli official: Hamas's arsenal has presented us with unprecedented challenges

Head of Production Department tanks and armored personnel carriers of the Israeli Ministry of National Security, Oren Geber said that the Hamas arsenal in the Gaza Strip presented the Israeli army with unprecedented challenges.

The official noted that they were very surprised by the number weapons and ammunition in the possession of the Palestinian faction in the Gaza Strip.



In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Calcalist, Geber stressed that the number of shells fired at Israeli forces was unprecedented for the army.

The Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas's military wing, uses munitions they have developed or modified to make them more lethal to military equipment, according to an Israeli official. This presented the IDF with problems it had not faced in any previous military operation.

The unimaginable number of anti-tank shells fired at our forces, compared to any war we have witnessed in the past, indicates the degree to which Hamas is prepared for this war

- said Geber.

As for the main means by which Hamas is trying to attack in the Gaza Strip, according to Gaber, these are rockets and RPGs of various forms and manufacturers.

He added that most of these munitions have been modified for Hamas purposes: they contain dual warheads and their own operating mechanisms for launching missiles, allowing them to target and hit targets from much shorter ranges.

An Israeli Ministry of National Security spokesman declined to say the number of Israeli soldiers killed in military vehicles since the start of the ground operation in Gaza, citing that they are "still at war."

    the slippers put “God’s chosen” before a challenge
    what would happen if the slipper manufacturers had a couple of thousand Chinese drones, and the missiles weren’t welded from pipes (the pipes apparently ran out, by the way)
    well, they could use a little more land

      God's chosen ones are chosen by God to be able to compose fairy tales, and this war will end in legends as the military moneylenders again defeated the world.

      There were drones, there were even workshops for their production. Electronic warfare, new anti-drone sights, etc. - everything was used.
      As for “God’s chosen ones” - well, you should honor the Old Testament, it’s all there)

        Don’t bore us with hints - tell me, what is there in the Old Testament about God’s chosenness?

          They also write a lot on the fences, but here the Jews themselves wrote that they are “...the chosen ones.” How was it necessary to “inherit” in history that they were spread rot for centuries for their vile cunning and greed? It’s not for me to judge, especially the will of God, but all this is reminiscent of the “flogging of a naughty person” for centuries. Who prevented the Jews from implementing the UN decision on two states, Israel and Palestine? Was the toad crushed? They themselves chose the path of the invader, instead of good neighborliness, and therefore - “what goes around comes around.”

    In short, the most relevant (albeit homemade and outdated) means.

      All in a row, including the most relevant ones now in Ukraine, the Nazis from the armed forces would have dismantled the terrorists from the IDF for firewood.

        Trapp1st:
        1. There are no handicrafts in Ukraine. And without the West, there wouldn’t be anything outdated. And if there was anything, it was sold.
        2. I don’t know about the dismantling, but a raven won’t peck out a crow’s eye.

          Handicrafts are all over the place in Ukraine; the drones alone are worth it.

    And some visitors to this site, foaming at the mouth, insist that in Israel all losses are immediately officially announced. Apparently this time the losses are much greater than before.

      They are announced. There is a clear list of names. The country is small, trying to hide the death toll is unrealistic. The complex contours of combat operations - yes. RPGs were mainly used because the distances are short and light, while ATGMs require more space.

      Don't kill yourself, you won't kill yourself like that. Since the beginning of the operation, just over 200 military personnel have died in 12000 Hamas-Islamic Jihad.

            Well, these won't lie. As Chesterton wrote:

          They count based on the surviving population. For Satan's chosen people, this is in the order of things. For attributing themselves to the “chosen people of God” - self-promotion, they will rake until they completely disappear. According to the books they wrote, this is not the first time they have lost statehood and wandered around the world.
          Someone may be indignant... but could Satan offer Jesus power over the world without having it? Aren't there too many of these "chosen ones" out there?

    Tolley, moreover, will be with the Israeli Armed Forces if the British MI-6 took up the matter.... Israel did not understand how Britain decided to “nullify” it with the help of Hamas, thereby showing it to Europe and, above all, to its “pupil” - USA, “who’s the boss”, by definition... With this well-orchestrated operation, Britain “put the US on the splits” so competently that any of their (US) “body movements” would “change their position”, in the Middle East, is fraught with receiving a sensitive blow to the “casual place”... Hamas itself is slightly puzzled by its successes in this war... Israel has been in a state of the most terrible mortal sin for many years - pride... For which our Creator is punishing it... .
