Following the assassination of Hamas
military chief Ahmed Al-Jabari,
Palestinian factions in Gaza have threatened to "burn down Israeli towns." Indeed, Israel's south has been subjected to ceaseless
rocket attacks in recent days – but a video allegedly documenting the launch of a Fajr-5 missile toward Tel Aviv turned out to be false.
Hamas' military wing is trying to prove, mainly to Gazans, that it possesses the capability to launch long-range rockets. It therefore released on Wednesday and Thursday video clips that allegedly shows such rockets being launched toward Tel Aviv.

The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades have been trying to trip up the IDF's
Iron Dome by targeting regions they believe the aerial defense system is not protecting.
In other attempts at psychological warfare , Hamas has been releasing false reports – in various media affiliated with the group – claiming that Israel has approached Hamas seeking an armistice.
