A video aired Wednesday on Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV showed terrorists from the group's Izz a-Din al-Kassam Brigades producing home-grown rockets to be used in attacks on Israel.

The footage translated by the media monitoring NGO MEMRI depicts Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida claiming that Gaza's ruling Islamist faction had replenished its supply of projectiles despite the dozens of strikes carried out on Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv and Haifa, during the IDF's operation against terror operatives in the Palestinian enclave.

"Your defeatist leadership claimed to have destroyed our rocket capability. However, despite the aggression, our production continues - from the workshop to the battlefield," a Hamas member says in the clip.

Israel has remained firm in its call for the demilitarization of Gaza as a condition to a lasting cease-fire agreement with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
