Hamas has ‘homemade’ sniper rifle — report

The Palestinian news agency Ma’an reports on Hamas claims that its fighters are using a “new model of sniper rifle manufactured in the Gaza Strip.”

The “homemade rifle” reportedly “uses 14.5 mm cartridges and has a maximum effective range of two kilometers, the [Sunday night] al-Qassam Brigades statement said. The rifle is named ‘Ghoul’ after the Brigades’ late military leader Adnan al-Ghoul.”

Ma’an notes that the Qassam rocket itself is a “homemade” weapon developed by Hamas in Gaza.
