CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - The Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), an Islamic terror group based in the Gaza Strip, invited reporters to the unveiling of the newest rocket in its arsenal.
Blindfolded journalists from CNN and other news agencies were taken to a location in Gaza to inspect the Nasser-4, an upgrade of the Nasser-3 rocket, which PRC officials say can travel 26 kilometers [more than 16 miles], bringing the Israeli coastal cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod within range.
The day's public relations efforts included a tour of a training ground, where their gunmen are preparing for a large-scale incursion by the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), which they believe is imminent.
"We have been under siege for the last two years, senior PRC commander Ibrahim Dahman told CNN reporters, who were treated to a tour of the group's rocket manufacturing facility.
"The only thing left is for them to invade and kill us," Dahman said.
Last week, PRC announced that the two-month-old Egyptian-brokered tadhiyeh (temporary calm) would end before the start of the Islamic month of Ramadan in three weeks if Israel doesn't open all the border crossings by then.
PRC terrorists helped their Hamas counterparts in the June 25, 2006 cross-border attack on an Israeli military outpost near the Kerem Shalom crossing with the Gaza Strip, killing two soldiers, wounding three, and kidnapping Corporal Gilad Shalit.
