On May 16th, the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, unveiled a new heavy improvised rocket-assisted munition (IRAM) dubbed “al-Qassim”.
The faction, that is the second largest armed formation in the Gaza Strip, revealed that the al-Qassim IRAM was used in an strike on a gathering of Israeli troops to the east of Khan Yunis on May 15th. The faction claimed that the attack resulted in human losses. This is yet to be verified.
Al-Qassim IRAM is armed with a 400 kg high-explosives warhead. The munition’s rocket booster has a diameter of 350 mm.
The design of the munition is identical to several IRAMs, which were spotted with the Syrian Arab Army, Hezbollah in Syria and Iranian-backed forces in Iraq. The Islamic Jihad is a key ally of both Damascus and Tehran, which may have assisted the group in the development of the IRAM.
Similar heavy IRAMs, which typically have a very short range, are used against troops gatherings, fortifications as well as hardened buildings.
Since the outbreak of the battle in Gaza, the al-Quds Brigades fired hundreds of rockets at southern and central Israel. In the last few hours, the group targeted the settlement of Nir Yitzhak as well as military positions in Nahal Oz, Amitai and Kosovim.

When all this is over a lot of these Al Qassam Brigade guys are going to work for SpaceX.
My feeling after reading the article and watching the video is that this IRAM is Jewish disinfo.
These guys are more serious than Hamas, attack troops gatherings and military installations instead of doing light show over Tel Aviv
Iron Dildo working fine for Gal Gadot!!!
Haha, look at that. Non wonder that the Jews are laughing at those Arabs ^^
“Non wonder” indeed, do you really talk like that or what?
Black men and Arabs have been killing each other with knives and swords for hundreds of years. An intelligent white man calculated by selling modern weapons to the illiterate, they would kill each other faster. My heart beats faster in pure joy at seeing the madness and killings that illiterate worshipers commit in the name of God.
Damn, I thought they would fire the 400kg but it didn’t or maybe they did, inshallah! Go ahead Quds defend what is your, defend your freedom from zionists Jewish operssion.
