The weapons used by Hamas murderers to massacre 1,400 civilians
The tools of terror that slaughtered Israelis in their homes: Thermobaric bombs, rocket launchers and knives were used by Hamas murderers to massacre 1,400 civilians in sickening October 7 attack – as IDF reveal arsenal of weapons
- The tools included RPG 7 rocket launchers, mortars, AK 47s, knive and mines
A frightening arsenal of weapons has been displayed by the Israeli Defence Forces – including thermobaric bombs that were used by Hamas terrorists to torch families alive in their homes.
The tools of terror included RPG 7 rocket launchers, mortars, AK 47s, knives, mines, a drone and hundreds of rounds of ammunition – some hidden in humanitarian rice bags.
Toyota pick-up trucks and a bulldozer were also displayed at the military base on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, where the Daily Mail was also shown a drone that had been recovered from inside Gaza.
Inside the box carrying it was an A4 sheet of paper that detailed parts and along the top was the name of the Hamas military wing – the Al Qassam Brigades.
Also recovered were flags and headbands from Islamic Jihad and deadly Draganov sniper rifles, as well everyday hose pipes that had been stuffed with explosives and a charge.

To take down fence posts, Hamas terrorists had made metal sophisticated frames that snapped around the concrete pillars, filled with TNT and then detonated.
Three motorcycles which were used to bring terrorists in and then ferry hostages back to Gaza were also on show in what was described as just a ‘tiny fraction’ of what had been seized.
Lt Col Idan Sharon-Kettler told the Daily Mail:’ This was not put together by some militia that targeted military objects, this was a vast amount of weapons and explosives designed for use against civilians and families in their own houses, not soldiers.

‘This wasn’t cooked up in some back yard, this was all stockpiled over a long period of time and took an immense amount of planning and money with military grade intelligence.
‘The intention here was the massacre of Israeli civilians – we have evidence that thermobaric bombs were sued in attacks on homes and on cars.
‘They are designed to take out tanks – you don’t need to tell me what they will do to a house or a car.’
A thermobaric bomb uses oxygen from the surrounding air to generate a high-temperature explosion, making it more deadly than a conventional weapon, creating a 3000’c fireball.
The initial charge punches a hole through the wall or metal and then a second charge detonates a powerful explosion burning everything.
Lt Col Sharon-Kettler said:’ This type of weapon was fired at houses and cars – they are designed to be use don tanks, when they explode, they incinerate everything around them.

‘We found evidence they had been used on houses to get into safe rooms and on cars – we found people who had burnt to death inside their homes and vehicles.
Lt Col Sharon-Kettler explained the weapons were originally from North Korea, Russia and Iran although the route they took to enter Gaza was unclear.
He highlighted how ammunition had been hidden in hessian sacks marked rice and said ‘this how they use the humanitarian aid’ in Gaza.
He went on:’ There is talk about Gaza being an open-air prison but these weapons can’t be found in a prison. This is the result of organised smuggling of weapons into Gaza from many different countries.
‘There’s a lot of money that went into his operation, someone was funding and planning it for a long time.
‘They wanted the fight to carry on in Israel and the result they wanted was the massacre of civilians.’
