Hamas video shows rockets fired into Israel

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION EDITORS NOTE: REUTERS CANNOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY THE CONTENT OF HAMAS HANDOUT VIDEO A new Hamas video shows rockets fired into Israel as it prepares for a fight along the Gaza border. Gaza militants fire rockets into Israel as Israeli aircraft bombed Hamas government buildings in Gaza on Saturday (November 17), including the prime minister's office, after Israel's cabinet authorised the mobilisation of up to 75,000 reservists, preparing for a possible ground invasion. Around 400 rockets have fallen in Israel since Wednesday (November 14) and around 240 were intercepted by the Iron Dome system. Palestinians have fired hundreds of rockets out of Gaza, including one at Jerusalem and three at Tel Aviv - Israel's commercial centre. Jerusalem had not been targeted in such a way since 1970, and Tel Aviv since 1991. Israel launched a massive air campaign on Wednesday with the declared aim of deterring Hamas from launching cross-border rocket salvoes that have plagued southern Israel for years. Hamas says it is committed to continued confrontation with Israel and is eager not to seem any less resolute than smaller, more radical groups that have emerged in Gaza in recent years. The Islamist Hamas has ruled Gaza since 2007. Israel pulled settlers out of Gaza in 2005 but has maintained a blockade of the territory.
