Hamas militants have learned lessons from the war in Ukraine and are using drones to drop grenades on Israeli Merkava main battle tanks.
Palestinian militants released footage that reportedly showed how its troops used weaponized drones to drop grenades on Israeli forces, including Merkava tanks.
The video shows a drone dropping a small gray object onto Israel’s Merkava IV tank and then the heavy combat vehicle going up in flames and being burnt out.
Hamas military commander Muhammad Al-Deif said earlier Saturday that the group was launching an operation dubbed “Al-Aqsa Storm” targeting “enemy positions, airports and military positions.”
