JNS.org – The Palestinian terror group Hamas reportedly test-fired at least one long-range rocket into the Mediterranean Sea on Monday.

Residents of southern Israel reported hearing a loud explosion following the test, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

Hamas frequently launches rockets into the Mediterranean as it seeks to improve its capabilities ahead of any possible future conflict with Israel. In June, Hamas test-fired dozens of short-range rockets inside the Gaza Strip.

Earlier this month, Islamic State-affiliated Salafi jihadist groups in Gaza fired a rocket on the southern Israeli city of Sderot that narrowly missed Israeli homes. The Israel Air Force retaliated by striking several targets inside Gaza.
