Palestinian terror organizations in Gaza have yet to display their actual missile capabilities, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan told the semi-official Iranian news agency Fars on Saturday.
He warned that "the operational power of the Resistance against the Zionist regime is a thousand times more than what it was before."

The army killed the three terrorists on Tuesday after they were firing mortar shells at IDF troops on the ground.
On Wednesday alone, more than 60 rockets have reached communities in southern Israel near the Gaza border.
The army attacked dozens of terror targets in response, leading Islamic Jihad to announce on an Egyptian-mediated truce with Israel based on the ceasefire mediated at the end of the November 2012 Operation Pillar of Defense.
Israel has denied reaching such a truce with Islamic Jihad, and announced that "calm will be met with calm."
