Hamas has rockets that can hit Tel Aviv?

Why yes, yes they can.

This according to Bloomberg:

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- The Islamic Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip can now launch rockets capable of reaching the Israeli metropolitan area of Tel Aviv, Deputy Foreign Minister :S:d1" onmouseover="return escape( popwSearchNews( this ))">Danny Ayalon said at a Jerusalem briefing.

“We know they have tried to, and have obtained missiles that reach 60 kilometers (37 miles),” Ayalon said today. “Tel Aviv and its vicinity are now under the range of Hamas.”

During Israel’s military operation against Hamas in Gaza, which ended in January, the farthest rocket strike was some 40 kilometers into Israel, endangering southern cities such as Ashdod and Beersheba.

Since the three-week operation, Hamas has been able to replenish its stock of military equipment and explosives as well as upgrade its rocket capability, Ayalon said. Hamas is receiving support from Iran, which is using the Islamic movement to increase its influence in the region, he said.

Hamas recently successfully tested a rocket with a 60- kilometer range, Major General :S:d1" onmouseover="return escape( popwSearchNews( this ))">Amos Yadlin, chief of military intelligence, told a parliamentary committee in Jerusalem today, according to the YNet news Web site.

When reached for comment, Abu Obaida, spokesman for Hamas’s military wing, said: “We are not interested in responding to the Zionist intelligence reports. They can say whatever they want.”

2 Yep I am in touch with Lital.  She has been busy with classes again.  She is now essentially a Junior. 

She even posted a clip on youtube.

She still has that yearning to travel and I told her the same thing I told her a couple of years ago. Anytime she wants to come to the US she has a standing ticket. 

I had sent her a B-day present - so far I dont know if she got it, yet.
