An IDF officer reported that a number of Hamas terrorists in Gaza were hyped up on psychoactive drugs, according to a report on Rotter.net.
Soldiers noticed that some of the Hamas terrorists they captured in Gaza were acting very “weird”.
Examinations indicated that they had been given drugs to make them “not afraid” to fight the IDF.
The report claims that a side effect of the drug is that it made it easier for the IDF to interrogate them.
In the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, it was reported a number of times that Hamas terrorists ran away as soon as the IDF approached.
The Hamas leadership may have given their fighters the drugs to stop that rational behavior.
