North Korean weapons linked to Hamas attack on Israel

October 17, 2023 - South Korea’s military has said that attacks on Israel by the Palestinian militant group Hamas may have used weapons supplied by North Korea.

The weapons include F-7s, a type of high-explosive fragmentation rocket produced in North Korea, as well as 122mm artillery shells with markings similar to North Korean ones.

Pyongyang has denied allegations that its weapons were used by Hamas in the attack against Israel as “a groundless and false rumour,” saying the claim was part of Washington’s bid to divert the blame for the conflict from itself.
