Hamas rockets have not hit an Israeli natural gas field, the IDF stated Wednesday, after the terror group's "military wing" boasted two false hits about 30 kilometer (19 miles) from Gaza.
Hamas's Al-Qassam Brigades claimed on its website that two rockets struck the Noa gas installation, which is owned by Nobly Energy and Delek.
Israeli authorities denied the claim, however, in statements from both military and corporate sources.
"The gas is flowing, business as usual," a spokeswoman for Nobel said in an email to Reuters. Delek has not yet commented on the claims. According to the daily, Noa, in Yam Tethys, rests in a largely depleted gas field.
The claim, while false, marks yet another attempt by Hamas to win in the economic and PR war against Israel.

I am always surprised that none of those poorly-guided missles fired from Gaza ever falls on the “Dome of the Rock” in Jerusalem.
Buildings like that are quite fragile, and so just one or two direct hits would basically clear the site. Then, just a few passes with a D-9 and survyers could start laying out the new “Third Temple”.
