Israel shoots down homemade Hamas drone (VIDEO)


Israel shot down a homemade Hamas drone that was flying in their airspace Monday.

The homemade surveillance drone was buzzing over the Israel’s southern coast when the country’s military launched a Patriot missile and shot it out of the sky, the ABC-affiliate reports.

Hamas said the drone had flown “three missions over Israeli military bases” before it was destroyed, and even offered video proof to back up their claim. However, as the drone in the footage is armed, it may not the same one.

According to a senior Israeli military intelligence official, Hamas likely launched the drone to garner media attention.
