Imported or homemade, Gaza’s rocket arsenals bedevil Israel (and costs Israel a fortune to counter)
Here is an article that shows the asymmetrical nature of Hamas’ missile attack against Israel’s counter-measures.
Even though in terms of human casualties, Palestinians are suffering more than Israelis, in terms of armaments and economics, the Israeli countermeasures are costing them much more than the effort from Hamas.
It reminds me of the Vietnam comparison where the USA bombed the Ho Chi Minh trail in the hopes of disrupting the supply networks of the communists but the cost of bombs vs the cost to maintain the road and mode of supply (cheap bikes) tolled against the American effort.

Though by the far the superior military power, Israel had been unable to stop the Palestinian rockets needling its southern towns over the past decade.
