-There are also other militants' groups, they mainly use 107mm and Grad rockets.. expect for some cases that I'll mention it below :

..Pictures of other rockets that were not possible to ID due to lack of info, most of them were manufactured by Al-Aqsa Brigades :
1/2 ImageImageImageImage
2/2 ImageImageImageImage
Finally, I was sourced by Palestinian sources, documentaries, interviews, etc..
Latest estimation of the Rocket numbers in Gaza was from back 2014, were it was said that Al-Qassam & Al-Quds Brigades alone had around 20k.. I would imagine that the number might have doubled.
Any feedback is always welcomed.

Here's 2 charts for most of Al-Qassam and Al-Quds Brigades' rocket arsenal by @fab_hinz ImageImage
Just a small corrections :
-Fajir-5 rocket :
Length = 6.48m not 10m (length of the launcher =10m )
Caliber = 333mm not 240mm

-M-75 rocket :
Length = 2-2.5m not 5m

#Thread on domestically made weaponry in #Gaza strip.

1) "Al-Banna" Anti-Armor Rocket launcher, developed in 2002 under the direction of Adnan Al-Ghoul & Mohamed Al-Deif.
An extensive amount of it was made & supplied to Al-Qassam's operatives & others factions' operatives. ImageImageImageImage
2) "Al-Battar" Anti-Armor unguided Missile Launcher, a simple but relatively affective launcher that consists of a 1m launch tube supported by a tripod with a missile that carries 4kg of high explosive materials produced by Al-Qassam Brigades and introduced in 2003. ImageImage
"Al-Battar" launcher would be installed in a certain direction while the rear of the missile would be connected to a wire so it can be launched from distance. ImageImage
