I beleive I read reports coming out of Hamas saying they have workshops to make long range rockets. This contradicts that report.
Al Qassam: M75 missile,M stands for Maqadma, former Hamas founder assassinated by Israel in 2003, 75 stands for the range it reaches 75-80km

Any feeds from the Israeli side or are the RT and Reuters feeds the only ones?

'2:30 P.M. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Qatar's Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, and Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi are holding a meeting in Cairo (Avi Issacharoff)'
Good or bad news?
Qatar is an Israeli/US puppet, Turkey is neutral, and Egypt for the Palestinians so these talks are probably an attempt at some mediation from regional players.
I am always suspicious of Qatar, while Turkey is hard to read, and Egypt is very transparent in my opinion so this meeting can be considered a good or a bad thing depending what your outlook is.

What are we to be seeing in the RT feed?
For some reason it has been moved down to the lobby level, a lot of "suits" up and down the stairs that are being monitored by a well dressed man (employee, management I assume). No one appears aware of the camera though.
Just switched back to a very large blast that occurred while we were watching the stairs.
Iron Dome (Hebrew: כִּיפַּת בַּרְזֶל, kipat barzel) is a mobile all-weather air defense system developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. It was designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4 to 70 kilometers away and whose trajectory would take them to a populated area. The system, created as a defensive countermeasure to the rocket threat against Israel's civilian population on its northern and southern borders, uses technology first employed in Rafael's SPYDER system. Iron Dome was declared operational and initially deployed on 27 March 2011 near Beersheba. On 7 April 2011, the system successfully intercepted a Grad rocket launched from Gaza for the first time. On 10 March 2012, The Jerusalem Post reported that the system shot down 90% of rockets launched from Gaza it fired at (rockets which will land in unpopulated areas are ignored). By April 2012, it had intercepted 93 rockets.
