Hamas has captured a dolphin that it says the Israel Navy was using to attack members of its armed wing, Izzadin Kassam, the Palestinian daily Al-Quds claimed on Wednesday.

Quoting sources in the Gaza Strip, the paper said that the Israeli dolphin had been captured off the shores of the Gaza Strip a few days ago.

The sources said Hamas naval commandos had noticed the dolphin making “suspicious movements.” When they followed the mammal, they discovered that it was carrying a device to monitor underwater activities, they said.

They claimed that Hamas frogmen had managed to seize the dolphin and take it to the shore, and that the dolphin had been equipped with a remote control monitoring device and a camera.

According to the sources, the captured device can fire small arrows that could kill or seriously wound anyone who dove deep into the sea.

The report said Hamas believed Israel was planning to target or monitor the movement’s naval commandos during their training in the sea. It added that Hamas experts were continuing to check whether the captured dolphin was carrying other electronic devices.

Hamas officials in the Gaza Strip refused to comment on the newspaper report.
