JNS.org – The Hamas terrorist group’s “military wing” on Wednesday claimed that it has rebuilt and is making use of an Israeli Skylark drone that crashed in the Gaza Strip last month.

“The Zionist enemy must know we are lying in wait and we will surprise it every day with a new achievement,” a Hamas statement said, adding, “A special unit of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades took control of a drone of the Zionist enemy and managed to make its services operational.”

Skylarks, which are manufactured by Elbit Systems, weigh only 15 pounds and are hand-launched by Israeli soldiers in the field. The drones are able to “see” as far as nine miles and can remain airborne for about two and a half hours.

    I wonder why would your news paper describe Hamas being “terrorists”, on what definition did the newspaper justify its use of terms. Did Hamas ever target civilians? Did Hamas ever ethnically cleanse a piece of land? Media should stay neutral and not act as a propaganda instrument serving the interests of one side presenting this as trustworthy news.
