The head of the IDF intelligence research department, Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz, said Sunday that Hamas was smuggling advanced anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles into the Gaza Strip. The development meant that the army had to prepare for a new reality in Gaza that would likely include stiffer resistance to IDF raids. The new weapons could also increase the danger for aircraft flying missions over Gaza, Baidatz said. Baidatz added that weapons smuggling from Syria to Lebanon was continuing, in contravention of the UN ceasefire resolution.
