The Islamic Jihad, who on Tuesday morning fired for the first time a Katyusha rocket into Israel from the Gaza Strip, announced Wednesday that it has many more of those rockets, Army Radio reported. The Katyusha rocket has twice the range of the primitive Kassam rocket, is more accurate and can carry more explosives. An IDF officer called the use of Katyushas, "an escalation on the Gaza battlefield."
