(JERUSALEM) The IDF today shot down over the Mediterranean a UAV controlled by the Gaza Strip's Islamist rulers Hamas. The drone fell into the sea without entering Israeli territory .
Hamas, like other Islamic terrorist groups loves to parrot the line they develop all their own equipment. The simple fact remains they procure the vast majority of their arms and armament from outside their borders. So it is with UAVs, in July 2014, Hamas showed off a video of a so called indigenous UAV flying over Israel. The thing is, it looked very similar to the Iranian Ababil. Whilst the type of UAV hasn't been released yet, the odds are its a ababil.
