Benghazi missiles turn up in Gaza


IHS Jane’s reported on their website Sept 24 that the Hamas al-Qassam Brigades displayed SA-7 Strela shoulder launched surface to air missiles (SAM) during a military in Gaza City on Sept 14. This is the first confirmation by a defense oriented news media outlet of the presence of such weapons in Gaza.

In the nearly one year since the attack on the CIA Annex and US Consulate in Benghazi Libya, it has emerged during testimony before Congress that up to 400 SA-7 SAM’s went missing subsequent to the attack on the Annex.

The fact that these weapons are turning up just after Iran has announced it is once again supporting Hamas logistically is likely not a coincidence.
