Mon Aug 4, 2014 18:06:51

The military wing of the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas has released a video footage, unveiling a giant indigenous sniper called Ghoul, as Israel continues its relentless aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to the al-Qassam Brigades’ statement, the marksman rifle uses 14.5 millimeter rounds and has an effective firing range of 2 kilometers.

The marksman rifle is named after Adnan al-Ghoul, a renowned engineer of Qassam Brigades, who was assassinated in a targeted killing by Israel in 2004.

Qassam Brigades earlier warned the Israeli regime that its continued occupation of the besieged Gaza Strip would put all its cities "within the targets" of its retaliatory rocket strikes.

More than 1,800 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza and another 9,400 wounded since the start of the Israeli aggression on July 8.
