Hamas military wing captures Israeli drone

Al-Qassam Brigades announced yesterday that it captured an Israeli drone on 22 July, rebuilt it and made it operational, the Anadolu Agency reported.

In a statement, Al-Qassam said: "A special unit took over an Israeli Skylark 1 drone and was able to make it operational."

"Security checks were conducted and the systems and technologies installed in the drone were examined, and then the unit rebuilt the drone and put it to use for the service of Al-Qassam Brigades."

Al-Qassam posted a video of the drone on its official websites. "The enemy must know that we will surprise it every day with a new achievement it would not expect."

"A group of young and creative minds of its members are responsible for this qualitative achievement. This achievement is dedicated to the Palestinian youth."

During last year's Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, which resulted in the death of more than 2,260 Palestinians and wounded over 11,000, Al-Qassam surprised Israel with the manufacture of its own drones which it used during the offensive.
