GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas' military wing said in a statement late Sunday that its fighters had been using a new model of sniper rifle manufactured in the Gaza Strip.

The homemade rifle uses 14.5 mm cartridges and has a maximum effective range of two kilometers, the al-Qassam Brigades statement said.

The rifle is named "Ghoul" after the Brigades' late military leader Adnan al-Ghoul.

Palestinian militant groups in Gaza have long developed homemade weapons, most notably the Qassam rocket used by Hamas fighters.
