Report: Hamas fired Chinese-made rockets into IsraelWS-1E rockets during the most recent operation (Hat Tip: Sunlight).
These and various types of Iranian-made Qassem rockets were identified as the main types that were fired from Gaza, according to the German magazine Der Spiegel.
The WS-1E (Weishi-1E or the Guardian-1E) artillery rockets are 122-mm in diameter and have a 45-pound warhead.
They have a range of 45 kilometers, or 28 miles.
Because launch vehicle is bulky, Israeli defense officials were intrigued as to how the weapons were transported into the highly monitored Gaza.They were probably transported in parts via the smuggling tunnels, unless, of course, the Egyptians let them in.
