Hamas claimed recently it has created its own new battle tank, repurposing it from parts of a captured Israel Defense tank.
The tank was put on display during a parade last week at the funeral of seven Hamas members.
A Hamas leader told the assembled crowd: “The Tufah neighbourhood (in Gaza) has a long story with enemy tanks, and therefore, we are preparing ourselves for the day we shall meet those tanks … Let the locally-produced vehicle move forward.”
But take a look closer.
Here is a side view, see it?
How about now?
Yes that’s right the tank is nothing more than a wooden prop on wheels.
Ofir Gendelman, spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, started the mocking responses on social media with a tweet saying:
“Hamas paraded yesterday a ‘captured, rebuilt Israeli tank. FYI, tanks aren’t made of wood and don’t run on wheels.”
