The Mystical Gaza Chinese Rocket
Simple Google searches seem to suggest the reason very few media outlets have made the Chinese connection is because this is somewhat dubious:
– According to Wikipedia the Soviet designed Grad rockts have been profliferated to over 50 counntries, with over a dozon countries manufacturing them.
– None of China’s 122mm Grad rockets were ever exported according to SinoDefense.com: 1) Type 81-90 rockets were never successfuly exported and was decommissioned in the 1990’s; 2) Closest spec’ed WS rocket, WS-1E, never entered production.
So it is a mystery how did Hamas ever get their hands on supposed Chinese-made rocked when it doesn’t exist.
