Hamas is now ready for a renewed military conflict with Israel, defense officials believe. The terror group already resumed limited rocket production activities, Haaretz daily reports.

The current Hamas rocket arsenal is large enough for another round of fighting, the IDF estimates.

Hamas is planning to rebuild its military capabilities for a new clash against Israel, the Jerusalem Center warned earlier. The terror group is not interested in securing a long-term truce, the report said.

Another conflict in Gaza is only a matter of time, a defense official told military journalist Tal Lev-Ram. The IDF is taking limited action against terror groups so far while preparing for major operations in case fresh fighting erupts.
