IRIB: "Qods Brigades able to hit Israel"

Start out the week with some good news:
Abu Hamze, Spokesman of the Qods Brigades, the military branch of Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement announced Saturday that these brigades have a caches of advanced missiles which can target Zionist-settled occupied cities near Gaza Strip.

Abu Hamze said the missiles can hit the Zionist settled areas for more than one year ten rockets a day.

According to DPA in Gaza, Abu Hamze said in a statement that the movement has great caches of Qods medium-range, Qods 3, two-phase Qods and Katiusha missiles.

The Zionist Haaretz newspaper claimed today that the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas has given some weapons to the Islamic Jihad Movement.
That refers to this: "Security sources: Hamas is arming Islamic Jihad with Qassams":
Security sources on Thursday said Hamas is supporting Islamic Jihad's rocket attacks against Israel with behind-the-scenes activities that include arming the organization's militants with Qassam rockets.

They said Hamas is emerging as the lynchpin of Palestinian terrorist activities against Israel.

While Hamas is maintaining a front of abiding by the cease-fire with Israel in the Gaza Strip, it is providing Qassam rockets to Islamic Jihad militants who are targeting Israeli towns in the south, the security sources said.


Meanwhile, for the first time on Thursday, Hamas extremists openly demonstrated against the leadership of the group.

A group of nearly 200 gunmen from the military wing of Hamas and the Executive Force demonstrated in the Jabalya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip against the unity government and declared that they will only abide by orders from the former foreign and interior ministers, Mahmoud Al-Zahar and Said Sayam.

Another reason for the mutiny revolves around disputes over the identity of the Palestinian prisoners on a list provided to Israel recently, for a possible exchange for the release of abducted IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.

Some of the demonstrators argued that the list of prisoners was prepared by those prisoners' relatives.

A meeting scheduled Wednesday between Nizar Riyan, a senior figure in the political leadership of Hamas, and members of the "rebels" ended with an exchange of gunfire near Riyan's home.

According to security sources, Hamas has adopted a strategy of duality, which will be maintained under all circumstances, including a situation of a general cease-fire. On the basis of this strategy, a Palestinian organization will continue violent activities against Israel notwithstanding a cease-fire. [...]
A Kos Diary today refers to Hamas's "willingness to accept a two-state solution" and "ability to sell it to the various armed Palestinian factions." Oh well.
