Israeli intelligence satellites have spied the loading of rockets and other material in Iran believed to be destined for the Gaza Strip, the UK-based Sunday Times reported, citing Israeli officials.
According to the report, Iran began preparing the weapons shipment around the same time Israel and Hamas negotiated a cease-fire late last week.
The shipment is said to include Iranianmade Fajr-5 medium-range rockets, the same model that was fired toward Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during Operation Pillar of Defense, the Sunday Times reported.

Ah, well, it looks like that 500 million he sent to The Palestinians last week went to good use.
Beat me to it
Tick, tock... 0bama and his minions lighting the fuse..
They better hurry or Dear Leader will beat them to it!
With Gaza now blockaded from the EGYPTIAN side as well, how is the stuff getting in? Is it being funneled via the Sinai anyways?
Getting ready for the next round in a series that never ends but the Israelis will be asked to, “exercise maximum restraint” in the face of 30,000 rockets.
Same old, same old...
"...Iranian made Fajr-5 medium-range rockets..."
Let's hope that's all they are (as if that isn't bad enough!)and that the Iranians aren't further ahead on another little side project than everybody thinks.
One to watch,thanks again.
Sunni Hamas is currently fighting Iran’s Shi’ite Hezbollah inside Syria.
The idea of Iran arming its enemy, Hamas, is pathological.
If Iran does arm Hamas...it will be after Hamas bows out of Syria.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
It’s happened before....(from the link)
Iranian officials on Wednesday acknowledged providing military assistance, including missile technology, to the Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
Iranian-engineered Fajr-5 missiles struck near Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during the conflict this week, and Israeli officials said that Iran supplied the longer-range missiles to Hamas.
A senior Iranian official disputed that accusation, but acknowledged that his country has shared its Fajr-5 missile technology with the militant group that controls Gaza.
The Fajr-5 missiles have not been shipped from Iran. Its technology has been transferred, and [the missiles are] being produced quickly, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, the head of Irans Revolutionary Guard, was quoted as saying by Irans semi-official ISNA news agency.
Yes Iran would never arm HAMAS because after all the Ayatollahs are not pathological, as everyone knows.
You didn’t understand what I posted.
There are signs that Hamas is now trying to mend its relations with Iran. This week Hamas joined other groups at a meeting in an Islamic Jihad office in Gaza to help plan activities for International Quds Day, a day of solidarity with Jerusalem that Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini instituted when he came to power in Iran in 1979 and which falls on the last Friday of Ramadan. In recent years only Islamic Jihad observed the event, with small demonstrations in Gaza. - nytimes.com
Hamas is in trouble because of Morsi’s downfall in Egypt so they are running to the Ayatollahs for help.
Sigh... Read the *last* sentence of post #8.
Have a sip of coffee.
That sentence has implications for the fight.
Yeah the Ayatollahs are just so smart and awesome that they would never do anything stupid.
