The mortar shells fired by Palestinian resistance during the "The Sword of Jerusalem" battle in Gaza constituted a major concern for Israeli occupation forces and made a big difference in the confrontation along with other means, such as long-range missiles and combat drones. .
"Although Israel has a highly advanced military radar system, this simple weapon of few ranges continued to fall on the army’s positions minutes before the announcement of the ceasefire between the resistance and the occupation on May 21, without the latter being able to detect its positions or intercept its falling shells.
