New Delhi: Israel and Palestine are locked in a fierce battle in Gaza strip for almost a week. The recent confrontation started after Israel Defence forces targeted Hamas top military commander, Ahmed Jabari, killing him in an airstrike that was broadcasted live on Israel Defence forces Twitter account.

In response, Hamas hit Israel with rockets reaching as far as the capital of Israel, Tel Aviv. The fighting has claimed many lives, with Gaza suffering the maximum number of deaths. The death toll has crossed 100 with over 700 injured.

Both the sides are unevenly matched in terms of military powers. Israel has time and again stressed its need to defend itself from the sporadic and deadly strikes originating from across the border.

Hamas’- the Palestinian political party that governs the Gaza Strip- military power is feeble in front of the massive armoury of Israel. Hamas has a military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades.

Since its establishment in December 1987, the military capability of the brigades has increased markedly, from rifles to Qassam rockets and more.

The brigades have a substantial weapons inventory of light automatic weapons and grenades, improvised rockets, mortars, bombs, suicide belts and explosives. The Brigades fire Qassam rockets and mortar shells into Israel on a regular basis. The group engages in military style training, including training which take place in Iran and Syria on a range of weapons.

Hamas commands a strike capability within 75 kms radius, with mortar and rockets.
