If the Gaza blockade keeps up, Hamas won't have even $100 to build missiles with. They are being completely cut off by the entire region (which is why they are reduced to using such crude weapons in the first place)

Unfortunately the blockade will also hurt innocent civilians in Gaza because they can't get resources like medical supplies, food, and equipment. As has been the case since the beginning, no simple solution.

Except that there's no blockade on medical supplies or food or most of anything else. As for the rest, like weapons, they're smuggled through tunnels from Egypt.
