Hamas threaten Israel with newly developed battle tank, but all is not what it seems

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.

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.”
