At the same time, Hamas expanded its arsenal with new, more deadly rockets, worrying the Israeli military.
Saudi Arabia’s air defense systems shot down a ballistic missile flying toward Israel, while Hamas acquired new powerful missiles.
Saudi Arabia Shot Down Missile
More specifically and according to new reports, Israeli media reported that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile launched from Yemen towards Israel last night.
Israeli researcher Guy Bekhor pointed out that despite Saudi Arabia’s recent announcements of “temporary pause” in the negotiations to normalize relations with Israel, positive developments have been achieved on this issue in the last two days.
The new events come as Reuters reports that Saudi Arabia has suppressed American plans to normalize relations with Israel. The famous news agency cited people with knowledge of the matter.
In video footage obtained by journalists from the Russian news portal Avia-pro, you can see the operation of a Saudi air defense system. So far the exact location of the interception of this missile remains unknownwhich was most likely intercepted by the arsenal of Yemen’s Houthi rebels.

Deadlier Rockets for Hamas
In other news, the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal covered in a recent publication the strengthening of Hamas’ armed forces, stressing that the organization that rules Gaza now has a more lethal arsenal of systems.
Israel must prepare for one constant and exhausting waraccording to a former Jewish state intelligence officer.
It was noted that Hamas continues to develop and adopt new types of weapons, which continuously and significantly increases the threat posed by the organization to Israel.
The situation in the Gaza Strip remains tense as the strip’s armed groups, including Hamas, simultaneously build up their arsenals in response to Israel’s ground invasion and shelling across the Palestinian enclave.
A day earlier it became known that the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah used pressure missiles Burkan and Ayash-250, which are the most powerful missiles used against Israel so far. These weapons are said to exhibit a long impact range.
