Anonymous officials in Israel: Hamas's rockets can reach Tel Aviv now

It feels like we've heard this before. Perhaps, it's just worth repeating considering other flow of news-bits regarding an upcoming new war.

Intelligence official: Hamas rockets can reach Tel Aviv
A senior intelligence official warned Sunday that Hamas in the Gaza Strip have rockets that can travel 80 kilometers (50 miles) — a longer range than previously reported, which would put Tel Aviv within range of its launchers.

The official blamed Egypt, saying it was not doing enough to stem smuggling through a network of tunnels along the relatively short border between its Sinai desert and the Palestinian territory. An Egyptian security official reached for comment maintained that Egypt was combating the smuggling successfully.
