According to the Gaza-based al-Watan Voice, the Kassam Brigades said in a statement that in addition to capturing the drone, the armed wing of Hamas had also “continued to pound enemy positions and cities with dozens of rockets” in response to “Israeli crimes against our people and ongoing barbaric aggression on our people in Gaza”.

The Kassam Brigades did not provide any details about when the alleged drone capture took place.

The Kassam Brigades added in its statement that it would “not remain silent on the crimes of the occupation” and that it would make Israel "pay a high price for its aggression, and think a thousand times before embarking on any aggression against our people."
