Hamas said on Tuesday that it would neither confirm nor deny reports about the new long-range missile. Abu Obaidah, spokesman for the armed wing of Hamas, said: "We refuse to comment on such claims. The goal of these claims is to incite against the Palestinian resistance and the Gaza Strip." Israel, he said, "can say whatever it wants. But in the end it's all speculation and there are many questions hovering over this matter." "The armed wing of Hamas, Izaddin al-Kassam, has no comment on this report. We neither confirm nor deny it."
