Iran’s aid has increased Hamas’ missile power and has put Israel in a difficult position

Both sides claimed victory last week when Israel and the militant Islamic group Hamas agreed to a ceasefire and ended 11 days of airstrikes and missiles.

So is Iran.

Hamas could never have fired so many missiles at Israel during recent battles without Iranian technical assistance. The new skills of this militant Islamist group could force Israel to reconsider its strategy in Gaza.

Hossein Salami, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, has proudly turned the Palestinians from “stone-throwing protesters to rocket-propelled grenade launchers.”

For more than two decades, Hamas supporters in Tehran have been shepherding the radical Palestinian organization’s weapons program, first providing Iranian missiles, then providing technology and training on how to use them in the Gaza Strip. This week, they celebrated the recent battles, which was another testament to Hamas’ military capabilities.

Experts say Hamas fired more missiles at Israel at a much faster rate than in previous conflicts, and this may change Israel’s strategic calculations.

“They have shown the ability and willingness to escalate, which will definitely influence future decisions in Israel,” said Fabian Hines, an Iranian missile expert. “And I think that’s a victory in itself.”

“The reality is that a new Palestinian has emerged who is fighting not with stones but with missiles,” said Hossein Salami, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The unprecedented flood that Hamas and the smaller Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) fired at Israel is modeled on what Iran is trying to do by supporting Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Houthi rebels in Yemen, and militants in Iraq and Syria. Write all over the Middle East.
