A senior Israeli intelligence official says Hamas has rockets with a range of 80 kilometers (50 miles), putting the coastal metropolis of Tel Aviv within range of its launchers.

The official blames Egypt, saying it is not doing enough to stem smuggling through a network of tunnels along the relatively short border between its Sinai desert and the Gaza Strip. “Egypt can stop all this smuggling of weapons within 24 hours if they want to do it,” the official said Sunday.
