GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel's air force said Monday that it shot down a drone over southern Israel, a statement said.

"This morning, IAF located and successfully intercepted an unmanned aerial vehicle which was identified along the Ashdod coast line.
IAF engaged the vehicle with a "Patriot" surface to air missile. The UAV was destroyed in mid flight."

Hamas' military wing claimed responsibility for the drone, saying that three reconnaissance flights were carried out Monday with multiple unmanned vehicles.

The al-Qassam Brigades said that it was not the first operation of its kind, and that the drones carried out "tasks" above the Israeli Ministry of Defense in Tel Aviv.

The statement highlighted that three types of unmanned Ababil drones have been produced, including reconnaissance drones, combat drones, and drones for suicide missions.

Was it confirm that they build them themselves?. Because they are very sophisticated flying machines. They all computerize and always there are some personnel on the ground that track the drone to its target. If it is true Hamas has them, how in the hell Israel with all their spying technology on Gaza miss them. Is Israel sure that Hamas don't have an underground military base, because if they build them in Gaza they must have one. They are not homemade.

Yes, Hamas technology is making progress. Some day, it may even figure out how to make bomb shelters for the people it should be protecting rather than the munitions it thinks will change the equation.
