On May 19, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) released footage of recent guided missile strikes against a number of multiple launch rocket systems (MRLS) and its bases in Gaza.

The footage shows nine attacks carried out by Spike NLOS (Non-Line-Of-Sight) missiles. Some of the targets seen in the footage were multi rocket launchers used by Palestinian factions. Other targets, as you can see, were facilities.

The Spike NLOS missile is an anti-tank missile with a range of up to 25 km. It is equipped with an electro-optical, infrared (EO-IR/CCD) seeker and a secure data line, which enable “man-in-the-loop guidance”.

The missile can be launched from ground vehicles or attack helicopters. Earlier, the Israeli Air Force released photos of an AH-64 Safra attack helicopter armed with three Spike NLOS anti-tank missiles.

The Israeli army also released a video showing an air strike on long-range rocket launchers. 

Despite heavy bombardment by the Israeli Air Force (IAF), Palestinian factions continue to launch hundreds of rockets from the Gaza Strip every day.

Palestinian factions have fired more than 4,000 rockets into southern and central Israel since May 10. The Israeli military claims that 60% of the missiles failed to engage their target, while the remaining were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defence system at a success rate of 90%.
