Photos are from today's Al Jazeera segment regarding the Qassam Brigades. Shows they are making effort to arm and upgrade their capabilities despite the land , sea and air siege. Also due to Egyptian efforts to make buffer zone on the border with Gaza which is making it more difficult to procure arms.

They are showing a technical ability to manufacture some of their arms and work with what they have. They have improved communications and revised strategy.

However, even with that, it is difficult to procure arms they need and pose a bigger threat to central Israel and strategic targets in Israel. It is hard to move larger rockets around and load them due to limited space in Gaza and due to 24/7 Israeli surveillance. And it is hard to protect these military assets in the event of a wider conflict.

So they will always be under these constraints due to Gaza small landmass, the siege, and general geography of Gaza which isn't in their favor and Hezbollah will have greater edge compared to Hamas due to larger landmass in Lebanon, no siege and space/equipment to move around and conceal such weapons.

PS: Part of the segment shows they used ordinance from sunken WW1 British warships off the coast of Gaza and converted them into more rockets or material used for producing rockets.

arent those the fajr 5 iranian weapons?
The second to last picture are indeed disassembled Fajr 5 rockets. They look like newer generation ones to me but I could be wrong.

Part of Hamas training exercises:
Empty show off
Can they do that in real?
Why every time Hamas launch many rockets without any kill or important damage but then Israel destroy a building with a bomb
If they love Palestinians they must think before act that can they win?

One cell aligned itself behind a Merkava Mark III tank, another behind a concrete watchtower, and another behind an armored personnel carrier. The militants simultaneously opened fire on their targets. The militants that attacked the tank blew open its rear door with an RPG. The tank's gunner, Corporal Gilad Shalit, was wounded by the RPG blast, suffering a broken left hand and a light shoulder wound.[19] Two of the militants then approached the tank. The RPG hit caused the tank to go up in flames, and its fire extinguisher system was activated. However, the engine stopped working and the ventilation system failed to work as a result, creating suffocating conditions inside. The tank's commander and driver climbed out to escape, and were gunned down by the militants. A militant then climbed onto the tank's turret and threw grenades into the tank, wounding another crew member.

Palestinian fighters look to be more well equipped however they should try to get more sophisticated anti tank weapons along with Man pads to challenge Israeli military significantly.

They have but manpads only use is to keep Israeli helicopters from crossing the border. It can be used to target jets too to disrupt them but near impossible to shoot down. A big accomplishment for them would be to shoot down an Israeli chopper but the Israeli AF is the best trained in the whole region and they don't make it easy at all.

For anti-tank missiles they have, but Israeli tanks use trophy system to intercept the missile and the Palestinians need a way around this. Their budget is very constrained though and so is their access to quality weapons.

Sadly but Hamas can't do anything with Israeli nukes

Very nice pics

i have one questions why do Palestinians fighters launch rockets from crowded or near public places like schools in Gaza.I have seen NDTV documentary which give Israelis an excuse to airstrike?
What an idiotic question. They are cornered in Gaza and surrounded on all sides. Where do you expect them to defend themselves? Israelis were doing airstrikes on Palestinians even before the Palestinians had rockets.

Not sure what Pakistan is playing at, why aren't Palestinians showing off Pakistani weapons we should be pumping huge amounts in retaliation for Israel supplying weapons to India.

Pretty much everything, they are not able to get quality weapons into Gaza even things like quality rifles make a difference. Their budget is too small. It's difficult for them to move weapons around during a war due to lack of air defense and need to be as stealthy as possible, which can't be done well with larger weapons.

They need much better offensive weapons and need a solution to the Israeli drones.

Has hamas requested heavy weaponry from Iran ? Or are they refraining doing so?

I think Israel relies more on its fighter jets rather than its choppers or drones. Take out their aerial superiority and they are done.

I'm sure they relay their needs but I wouldn't know to what extent Iran is willing to arm them. It's difficult to deliver arms to Gaza and they have been captured by Israeli, Egypt and even ISIS in Sinai before.

The drones are trouble as they are heavily utilized during ground invasions and enable them to quickly identify targets and strike them. If Hamas can shoot those down they can put up a better defense. Also understand during a war, Israel will put together a ground invasion very quickly to cut up Gaza into many pieces and isolate each region. This is to make it harder to move weapons around but also to hinder Palestinian firepower and ability to provide reinforcements and what not. Obviously Hamas has adjusted to this but they can only do so much.

Israel also uses their Navy to shell Gaza from the coast. So Hamas could use anti-ship missiles and longer range mortars or even guided mortars if possible to strike Israeli artillery units near the land border. Israeli utilizes artillery very heavily during ground invasions and it is a big problem.

Here is an example, in Al Shajiayeah, a Hamas force was fending off a ground invasion by the IDF. They managed to kill 13 soldiers in the initial parts of the invasion and afterwards the IDF began shelling the whole city like crazy and tried forcing everyone to evacuate it. Here is real footage of some shelling residents had to deal with:


...
...

Once the ground forces come in, they try to take over areas near the border and this limits Hamas's ability to fire mortars at their infantry across the border and artillery teams. Even if they had them in their arsenal they will lose opportunity to use them and that's why Israel rushes the ground invasion usually. Mortars are very valuable for Hamas, the high quality 180mm ones that is, as they are not too affected by the Iron Dome and are more effective against Israeli infantry than imprecise rockets.

They also are having trouble with Israeli tanks due to the trophy system successfully intercepting anti-tank munitions.

So they and Hezbollah are dealing with an army that is going to use excessive firepower but now figured out ways to limit damage to themselves and their infantry. Hezbollah gonna be able to cope better with that and they definitely study Hamas's experiences to analyze IDF tactics and how to break down their new strategies.
Take out their aerial superiority and they are done.
True, and it's quite difficult for either Hamas or Hezbollah to acquire sophisticated radars and expensive missile defense systems.
