While everyone is focusing on Israel’s North for the next war, most are ignoring Hamas’ expanding arsenal.
Experts and defense officials agree that the war to the North is not a matter of if, but when. However, the Northern war will be directly connected to a second front with Hamas in the South.
In the past, Hamas has created major issues for the IDF by way of terror tunnels, blankets of rockets, and fire balloons. However, now their arsenal has grown considerably.
Israeli Defense officials have reported that Hamas has 7,000 rockets, 300 anti-tank missiles, and 100 anti-aircraft missiles.
They also have a fleet of drones supplied by Iran, 30,000 well trained troops, 400 specially trained navy commandoes.
While it is not clear when the great Northern war will start, what is clear is that Hamas is preparing to join in the fray.
