Death's Workshop

Via Death's Workshop:

Abu Abdullah has almost finished assembling another rocket at a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) hideout in Gaza's Khan Yunis refugee camp. His is merely one of a dozen or so armed groups that are operating in Gaza. Most, if not all, have rockets. According to the Israeli government, 640 rocket attacks have been launched from Gaza since July, with about 530 landing inside Israel. The Gaza militants say they've made big improvements, packing in more explosives and adding a second engine; some groups have begun upgrading to military-grade explosives, smuggled in from Egypt. And years of experience have sharpened their aim until they can count on striking within a quarter mile of a chosen target.
