Palestinian rocketeers using silos


Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip are using underground silos to fire rockets into Israel.

The Israeli military released footage over the weekend showing two shafts buried in a sand dune that had been discovered during a raid on the Gaza frontier. The 6-foot-deep holes had metal railings designed to accommodate rockets during launches that would likely not be spotted in advance by Israeli aerial surveillance.

It was not immediately clear which Palestinian terrorist group is using the silos, which Israeli experts said  show the growing influence of Hezbollah on Palestinian tactics.

During the 2006 war, the Lebanese guerrilla group sent remote-fired rockets into Israel from pre-built bunkers.
