Hamas Claims It Downed Israeli Drone in Gaza

Hamas claimed its operatives shot down an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV, also known as a drone) over the Shejjaiya section of Gaza City sometime on Monday.

If that’s true, it’s the second one caught by the enemy in a week.

Last week the Iranians also captured an Israeli drone, that one heading for the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.

One Response to “Hamas Claims It Downed Israeli Drone in Gaza”

  1. I know everyone prefers to say that they’re lying but it’s quite possible they did shoot it down. After spending years listening to Bibi threaten attacks on it, they put in some very sophisticated Russian and French Anti-Air capabilities around that sight. I’m sure there’s another IAF drone already over it to help figure out the how of it to prevent a similar shoot down in the future. Welcome to the great game, my friends.
