IDF captures Hamas drone launched from Gaza

The IDF thwarted another attempt by Hamas to breach Israel’s air space.

An IDF unit on Saturday captured a multicopter that took off from Gaza and landed in Israeli territory.

The multicopter was taken for “further inquiry,” the IDF stated.

The Hamas terror organization, which rules the Gaza Strip, has attempted to penetrate Israeli airspace in the past with drones, most recently in February.

In June 2015, a Hamas drone crashed inside Israel.

In July 2014, a UAV flying from Gaza was shot down over Ashdod by a Patriot missile battery during Operation Protective Edge.

Hamas has been working for over a decade to develop aircraft that could be used for surveillance or attack missions.
