Israeli Arabs claim to have built their own rockets

This video from Ma'an shows what is supposed to be a rocket built by an Israeli Arab terror organization, the Ahrar Al-Jalil Brigades, who have claimed a number of attacks internally in Israel - some of which seem to have never occurred, others are dubious.

The video could easily be of a painted cardboard tube, but it is still something to be aware of.
The brigades said in a statement that accompanied the video that is "the first time in the history of the 1948 Arabs that they have produced a homemade projectile which is now set up in the Al-Jalil hills (Galilee) and is ready to be launched."

In the statement the brigades sent a message to the Israeli leadership that if the Al-Aqsa mosque is attacked, the brigades will attack the Israeli defense ministry in Tel Aviv.
